  • Description

    King Mahendra of Nepal, on a week's State visit to Japan, went to the Imperial Palace, Tokyo, April 19, to meet Emperor Hirohito and the Empress. Accompanied by his Queen and by Prince Hikasa, younger brother of the Japanese Emperor, the King drove to the Palace in a horse-drawn State coach.

    Outside the guests' residence where the Royal visitors were staying, crowds waved miniature Japanese and Nepalese flags as the State coach passed by.

    King Mahendra was presented by the Emperor with the Supreme Order of the Chrysanthemum, and in turn conferred Nepal's highest Order on the Emperor.
