Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi will visit Japan from April 13 to 19, her first visit in roughly 27 years, and is expected to meet with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida and other leaders, the Foreign Ministry said.

During her seven-day visit, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate plans to give a lecture and meet with people from Myanmar in Japan. According to sources familiar with the planning, Suu Kyi will also travel to Kyoto, where she was a visiting scholar between 1985 and 1986.
