Two new ambassadors to Japan presented their credentials to Emperor Naruhito on Wednesday as ceremonies marking the arrival of foreign envoys to their post were held for the first time since the end of a three-month coronavirus pandemic suspension.

During the ceremony in the Imperial Palace’s Matsu no Ma room, the emperor and the ambassadors of Tonga and Rwanda wore face masks and refrained from shaking each other’s hands to lessen the risk of infection.
