    JAPAN'S CROWN PRINCE AKIHITO AND PRINCESS MICHIKO HAVE BEGUN A THREE-WEEK GOODWILL VISIT TO PERU, ARGENTINA AND BRAZIL. THE PRINCE AND PRINCESS RECEIVED A WARM WELCOME FROM THOUSANDS OF PERUVIANS, MANY OF JAPANESE DESCENT, WHEN THEY ARRIVED IN LIMA LAST WEEK (THURSDAY).

    THE CROWN PRINCE IS REPRESENTING EMPEROR HIROHITO ON THE VISIT, THE FIRST BY A JAPANESE IMPERIAL FAMILY MEMBER TO SOUTH AMERICA.

    THE VISIT IS HOPED TO PROMOTE FRIENDLY RELATIONS BETWEEN JAPAN AND THE LATIN AMERICAN NATIONS. THE COUPLE WILL MEET THE PRESIDENTS OF THE THREE COUNTRIES AND VISIT CULTURAL AND INDUSTRIAL PLACES OF INTERESTS.

    THERE ARE ABOUT 60,000 JAPANESE SETTLERS IN PERU, 19,000 IN ARGENTINA AND SOME 600,000 IN BRAZIL.

    THE ROYAL COUPLE WERE GIVEN A TICKER-TAPE WELCOME THROUGH THE STREETS OF LIMA. CROWDS LINED THE STREETS AND WAVED FROM BUILDINGS. A MOTOR CYCLE ESCORT AND TRUMPETERS ON HORSEBACK ACCOMPANIED THE ROYAL CAR ON ITS ROUTE THROUGH THE CITY.

    THE CROWN PRINCE AND THE PRINCESS WILL LEAVE TODAY FOR ARGENTINA, ON THE SECOND LEG OF THEIR TOUR. THEY WILL STAY IN ARGENTINA UNTIL MAY 21, AND WILL THEN GO ON TO BRAZIL.

    THEY ARE SCHEDULED TO RETURN TO JAPAN ON MAY 28.
