Japan in the News: Emperor and Empress Visit to Canada

On July 1, Canadians celebrated Canada Day.  A few days later, the Emperor and Empress of Japan began their historic 12 day visit to Canada, as no head of the Japanese monarchy has ever been to Canada.

Please read the full Globe and Mail article (Globe and Mail is Canada’s national newspaper) written by Bill Curry.

According to the article, a number of Japanese media have traveled to cover the tour.  Aside from the obvious political reasons, hopefully, this visit gives more visibility about Canada to the local Japanese people.
