Japanese Crown Prince Fumihito and his family made 300 medical gowns by hand earlier this month and donated them to various hospitals for use by healthcare workers. After hearing that protective equipment was in short supply, Crown Prince Fumihito, his wife Crown Princess Kiko, their three children and some employees of the Imperial Household Agency began to make the gowns using plastic bags.

Nearly 100 gowns were delivered on May 15 and 200 more on May 22 to the Saiseikai Imperial Gift Foundation Inc., a social welfare organization of which the Crown Prince is President. The foundation distributed the gowns to its hospitals across the country.

During a video conference with the foundation's officials on May 11, Crown Prince Fumihito and Crown Princess Kiko, and their daughters Princess Mako and Princess Kako first learned that hospital staff have been making gowns using garbage bags due to shortage. Prince Hisahito, the couple's youngest child who did not take part in the videoconference, also took part in making the gowns.
