Princess Mako Commemorates Japanese Migration to Paraguay

ASUNCION – Japan’s Princess Mako arrived on Wednesday to join celebrations of the 80th anniversary of the coming of the first Japanese immigrants to Paraguay.

The 24-year-old granddaughter of Emperor Akihito is making her first visit to Paraguay and only her second solo official journey after traveling to El Salvador and Honduras last December to mark eight decades of diplomatic relations between Japan and the two Central American countries.

Besides her agenda in Asuncion, Mako will visit Japanese communities in rural Paraguay, the Japanese Embassy said.

The first official act of Mako’s visit will be laying a wreath at Independence Hall in the capital.

On Thursday, the princess will meet President Horacio Cartes at Mburuvicha Roga palace and receive the keys to the city from Asuncion Mayor Mario Ferreiro.

Princess Mako will preside over Friday’s commemoration of the 80th anniversary of the arrival of a group of Japanese farmers in 1936.
