Japan's Crown Prince Naruhito has said that his father Emperor Akihito should reduce his workload after undergoing heart bypass surgery a week ago.

 

Making the comments in a press conference to mark his birthday, the 52-year-old prince said that given his father's age, it is necessary for him to cut down on his official duties, AFP reported.

 

Speaking at the conference, he said: "Considering his age, I think it is necessary to reduce his burden," the news agency quoted.

 

"It's important that people surrounding him think hard to help him. I'd like to do whatever I can that is helpful in this regard."

 

Crown Prince Naruhito temporarily took over from his father when the emperor entered Tokyo Hospital for the operation last Friday.

 

Following the successful surgery, the 78-year-old emperor was discharged from the intensive care unit two days afterwards and is expected to go home in the next week or two.

 

Naruhito will continue to oversee official duties while his father recuperates, something he had t do last year when his father was again hospitalised suffering from bronchial pneumonia.

 

Last year, the Crown Prince's young brother, Prince Akishino said he thought tat Japan should consider setting a retirement age for the emperor.
