HIH (His Imperial Highness)Prince Takamado, third son of HIH Prince Mikasa (Takahito)*brother of the late Emperor Hirohito, posthumously called Emperor Showa in Japan*. He was the first cousin of Emperor Akihito.

Prince Takamado was seventh in line to the Chrysanthemum throne. He is survived by his wife, Princess Hisako, 49, (they were married in 1984)and his three daughters, Tsuguko, Noriko, and Ayako.

Prince Takamado graduated from Gakushuin University in 1978. He studied abroad in Canada from 1978 through 1981 at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. From 1981 until his passing, he worked as an administrator at the Japan Foundation.

Prince Takamado served as president or honorary president of various organisations that concerned themselves with music, dance, international exchange, and sports. During his lifetime he traveled extensively abroad to represent Japan at various functions.

Prince Takamado died from a sudden heart attack while playing squash with the Canadian ambassador Robert Wright at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo.

Following a traditional Shinto funeral service, his body was then cremated at a crematorium in Shinjuku Ward, and his ashes were entombed at his family's grave in the cemetery along with some personal effects he cherished.
