The prince encourages his playmates to enjoy rough-and-tumble outdoor winter sports, but he stands aloof on his front porch, not quite one of the boys. Even his costume sets him apart; it is a miniature replica of the military uniform worn by his father, who sits in the parlor. It is known that Prince Haru (the future Taishō Emperor) was unfortunately plagued with illness.
