His Imperial Highness Nobuhico, Prince Higaxi-Cuni is the only son of Prince Molihiro and grandson of Naruhico, Prince Higaxi-Cuni. He followed his grandfather and father into politics, and is currently serving as Governor of Edo Province.

Prince Higaxi-Cuni formerly served as President of the Yamato Party. He is a noted historian, though one with a strongly nationalistic bent. He believes strongly that the Imperial Family should control the most important positions, and believes the First and Fourth amendments to the Japanese Constitution should be repealed, along with the separate constitutional existence of Corea.

Perhaps surprisingly, he did not oppose the revision to the Imperial Succession Law that permitted Empress Gacudai to ascend, as the law still mandated that only children by another Imperial Family member would be permitted Imperial Family status, preserving the patrilineal tradition.
