South Korean President Lee Myung Bak is planning to visit Japan on from June 28 to 29 to meet Prime Minister Taro Aso as part of their so-called shuttle diplomacy, diplomatic sources said Saturday.

The two countries are also considering holding the summit in Kyoto, with the aim of demonstrating the relaxed nature of their relations by having an informal meeting in a regional sightseeing area rather than in Tokyo, the sources said.
