  • Description

    Japan received the Shah of Persian in royal style on May 19th., when he arrived by air for a two week visit to the country. He is the second Monarch to be given state treatment since the last world war. The other ruler was Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia.

    Crown Prince Akihito acted as the Japanese Emperor's representative at Tokyo Airport, and with him was Premier Nobusuke Kishi, Foreign Minister Fujiyama, and other government leaders and military chiefs.

    After inspecting the customary guard of honour, the Shah was driven away from the airport. He is the guest of the Imperial household and his itinerary includes a visit to the opening day of the Third Asian Games and the Iranian Art Exhibition.
