  • Description

    Crown Prince Atihito end Princess Michiko of Japan left Tokyo for the United States Sept 22 for a 16-day visit at the invitation of President Eisenhower in connection with the centenary celebrations of U.S.-Japanese relations.

    A big crowd lined the Tokyo streets as a carcade took them from the palace to the airport and members of the Royal Family, Cabinet Ministers and officials were at the airport to see them off. One hundred pieces of baggage went with them on the tour.

    The couple arrived at San Francisco Sept. 24 and later flew to Washington in President Eisenhower's personal plane. There they will stay as State guests at Blair House. Functions arranged in their honour include a banquet by Eisenhower at the White House.

    The Crown Prince and Princess will then visit New York, Chicago, Seattle and Portland.

    This is the Crown Prince's second overseas trip. In 1953 he attended Queen Elizabeth's coronation in London and subsequently toured Europe.
