  • Description

    TIGHT SECURITY MEASURES WERE TAKEN AT THE TOKYO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT ON JUNE 16 -- THE DAY THE MALAYSIAN KING AND QUEEN WERE GIVEN A TREMENDOUS WELCOME ON THEIR ARRIVAL FOR A 10-DAY STATE VISIT TO JAPAN.

    THEIR MAJESTIES, DRESSED IN TRADITIONAL MALAY COUNT DRESS, GOT OUT OF A CHARTERED PLANE AND WALKED DOWN A RED CARPET TO WHERE JAPANESE EMPEROR HIROHITO AND EXPRESS NAGAKO AWAITED THEM.

    ALL STOOD AT ATTENTION AS A MILITARY BAND PLAYED THE NATIONAL ANTHEMS OF BOTH COUNTRIES, AND A 21-GUN SALUTE SOUNDED ACROSS THE AIRPORT.

    THE MALAYSIAN KING AND QUEEN WERE INTRODUCED TO THE MEMBERS OF THE JAPANESE IMPERIAL FAMILY, INCLUDING CROWN PRINCE AKIHITO AND PRINCESS MICHIKO, THE JAPANESE PRIME MINISTER, MR. HAYATO IKEDA, SENIOR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND MEMBERS OF THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS.

    FASCINATED JAPANESE WOMEN SURGED FORWARD FOR A CLOSER LOOK OF THE CHARMING QUEEN IN DAZZLING KAIN SONGKET (NATIONAL SKIRT).

    THE KING THEN INSPECTED A GUARD OF HONOUR BY MEMBERS OF THE JAPANESE NATIONAL DEFENCE CORPS. IN THE GROUND, THE MALAYSIAN FLAG FLUTTERED SIDE BY SIDE WITH THE JAPANESE FLAG.

    FOLLOWING THE BRIEF CEREMONY, THE MALAYSIAN KING AND QUEEN, ESCORTED BY POLICE OUTRIDERS WERE DRIVEN THROUGH 10 MILES OF CHEERING FLAG-WAVING CROWDS TO THE IMPERIAL PALACE.
