When Prince George is away, Prince William will still find a way to play with children! As the royal family member continues his four-day tour of Japan, Kate Middleton‘s husband found himself entertaining several youngsters at the Smile Kid’s Park in Koriyama.

Despite wearing a blue suit, Prince William had no trouble jumping into a ball pit where he showed off his juggling skills at the center.

The 32-year-old also grabbed a shovel and participated in a tree-planting ceremony symbolizing his hopes for a speedy recovery in the region affected by a devastating March 2011 earthquake.

One child who was able to participate in the events said meeting Prince William was “a memory for a lifetime.”

During his jam-packed schedule, the Prince also made time to visit a Tokyo shopping complex where he viewed a variety of products including a few special cars.

Shiny Aston Martin vehicles were on display as William tested out a variety of items from business owners.

But what could get fans talking the most is the proud father’s visit to Tokyo TV broadcaster NHK where the cast of a samurai drama show was filming. While on-set, Prince William tried on a glittering helmet and red kimono coat of a shotgun samurai.

“How do I look?” he asked those around him before looking in the mirror. “I feel ready for action.” And if that wasn’t enough, The Duke of Cambridge also got to meet Domo, the official mascot of NHK. In fact, he even got to take a stuffed animal home.

Looks like we know one of Prince George’s gifts from this vacation.
