Princess Mako to visit Brazil for 110th Anniversary of Japanese Migration

TOKYO – Japan’s Princess Mako, eldest granddaughter of Emperor Akihito, will travel to Brazil in July to commemorate the 110th anniversary of the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to the Latin American country, the Japanese Imperial Household Agency confirmed to EFE on Friday.

This will be Princess Mako’s first official visit to Brazil where she will travel to 14 cities between July 17-31 and attend commemorative ceremonies in memory of the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants.

Rio de Janeiro, where Princess Mako will arrive on July 18, will be the starting point of her tour, during which she will also meet the Brazilian President, Michel Temer.

As part of her itinerary Mako is scheduled to give a speech on July 20 in Maringa city in the southern state of Parana and visit other places such as Manaus and Tome Acu with significant presence of Brazilian descendants of Japanese immigrants.

Brazil hosts the largest Japanese community in the world outside of Japan with around 1.9 million people.
