Japanese Prince, Wife Leave for Chile to Commemorate 120 Years of Friendship

TOKYO – Japan’s Prince Akishino, the younger son of Emperor Akihito, and his wife Kiko left for Chile on Monday on a 10-day visit, during which they will take part in celebrations to mark the 120th anniversary of bilateral relations between the two countries.

The royal couple, who will remain in Chile until Oct. 2, is scheduled to meet some 3,000 Japanese descendants living in the South American country shortly after their arrival in Santiago on Tuesday, Japanese news agency Kyodo reported.

A day later, they will attend a welcoming ceremony at the state government office of the Palacio de la Moneda, where they will hold a meeting with President Michelle Bachelet, and will also attend an event commemorating the establishment of diplomatic relations.

During their stay in the capital of the Andean country, the Japanese royal couple is also expected to meet with Chancellor Heraldo Munoz, according to the Chilean media.

Later, they are set to travel to the port city of Valparaiso, where they will visit a tsunami observatory, and will go to Puerto Varas to see a salmon farm, a fish which is exported to Japan in large quantities.

The royal couple are due to leave the Latin American country on Oct. 2, according to Kyodo.
