  • Description

    West Germany's Chancellor, Dr Konrad Adenauer, arrived at Tokyo Airport, March 25, at the start of his eight-day State visit to Japan. Japanese Premier Nobusuke Kishi was at the airport to greet the German visitor and his party, which included West German Foreign Affairs Minister Heinrich von Brentano and Secretary of State Felix von Eckardt.

    Demonstrators were also waiting to give Adenauer a different kind of welcome. Although policemen were stationed around the airport in large numbers, cries of "Heil" were thrown at the German Chancellor as he left the aircraft with his son and daughter.

    During his stay, Dr Adenauer will be presented to the Japanese Emperor and Empress. A series of talks with Prime Minister Kishi and members of his cabinet have been arranged.

    A short tour through Japan has been planned for the German Chancellor. He will visit; Fuji-Hakone, Osaka, Nara and Kyoto. On April 1, he will leave Tokyo for Bonn via Iceland.
