Paris, Sept. 13 (Jiji Press)--Japan's Crown Prince Naruhito watched kabuki performances at the Chaillot National Theater in Paris on Thursday.

The performances were part of the Japonismes 2018 series of Japanese cultural events.

At the Petit Palais museum, the Crown Prince watched an exhibition of the works of Ito Jakuchu, an 18th-century Japanese painter.

Looking back on his trip to France so far, the Crown Prince told reporters that he "felt the people of France are taking a strong interest in Japan and are trying to learn about Japan."

The Crown Prince also took part in an event to light up the Eiffel Tower.
