Princess Mako to Visit Peru, Bolivia to Mark Japanese Immigration Anniversary

TOKYO – Princess Mako of Japan, the eldest niece of newly crowned Emperor Naruhito, will next month begin a 12-day visit to Peru and Bolivia to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to these Latin American countries.

The first phase of the 27-year-old’s travels will begin with her arrival in Lima on July 9 from where she will travel to Cuzco and remain a few days before returning to the capital and depart for Bolivia, the Imperial House said on Tuesday.

Princess Mako will arrive in La Paz on July 15 and from there she will travel to Santa Cruz de la Sierra where she will remain until the end of her visit on July 20, during which she is expected to participate in several events related to the commemoration of the arrival of the Japanese.

Mako will leave Bolivia on July 20 and is scheduled to arrive in Tokyo two days later.

The princess made a similar visit to Brazil in 2018 for the 110th anniversary of the arrival of the first Japanese in the country, which has the world’s largest Japanese community outside Japan.

On that occasion, in addition to meeting with descendants of the first Japanese that arrived in the country, she visited monuments, gardens and museums as well.
