  • Description

    THE FIRST MALAYSIAN KING AND QUEEN TO UNDERTAKE 10-DAY STATE VISIT TO JAPAN, LEFT KUALA LUMPUR ON JUNE 15. THEY WERE SEEN OFF BY ABOUT 500 DIPLOMATS, CABINET MINISTERS AND OTHER WELL-WISHERS.

    WEARING TRADITIONAL MALAY COURT DRESS OF ROYAL YELLOW, THEIR MAJESTIES ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT ACCOMPANIED BY ESCORTS OF THE FEDERATION RECONNAISSANCE REGIMENT, IN FULL CEREMONIAL COSTUME, AND FLANKED BY POLICE MOTORCYCLISTS.

    A BAND PLAYED THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AS THE KING INSPECTED A GUARD OF HONOUR. SPECIAL PRAYERS WERE ALSO RECITED BY THE CHIEF MUSLIM PRIEST IN ATTENDANCE, FOLLOWING WHICH THEIR MAJESTIES PROCEED ALONG A LINE-UP OF DIGNITARIES ASSEMBLED TO BID THEM "BON VOYAGE".

    THE KING IS NO STRANGER TO JAPAN. HE WAS LAST THERE IN 1954 AS HEAD OF THE STATE OF PERILS, NORTHWEST MALAYA.

    A TIGHT PROGRAMME HAS BEEN ARRANGED BY THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT, WHICH WILL ALLOW THEIR MAJESTIES, ACCOMPANIED BY A SUITE OF 16, TO SEE MUCH OF THE SCENIC BEAUTY AND THE INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT OF JAPAN.
