Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko arrived in New Delhi on Saturday for a weeklong state visit to commemorate last year’s 60th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties.

The visit, 53 years after the Imperial Couple’s first official trip to the country in 1960 as Crown Prince and Crown Princess, is the first to India by a Japanese Emperor and Empress. It was arranged at the invitation of the Indian government.
