One of the largest foreign colonies in Brazil is formed by the japanese. They have and still are playing a great part in Brazil's agricultural development. The interior of the states of Sao Paulo and Parana, Brazil's main coffee production centres have received great benefit from japanese labour. In fact, towns can be found where 90% of the population are japanese, or "nisei", who are the ones already born in Brazil. The japanese immigration to Brazil is now 50 years old, and several festivities are planned, the first of which was the arrival at Rio, of His Imperial Highness, Prince MIKASA, who came to Brazil together with his wife, Princess Yukiro Mikasa. This story covers the arrival of the Imperial pair, the first press interview, and the official reception, given by President Kubitschek at Rio's foreign office, ITAMARATY palace.
