Arriving via Burma and Indonesia, the President's 'Viscount' aircraft touched down as a 21-gun salute echoed around the tarmac. The Emperor, accompanied by Prince Yoshi, Prince Takamatsu, Prince Mikasa, Prime Minister Ikeda, members of the Japanese Government and Diplomatic Corps, welcomed the distinguished guest in an airport lounge ceremony.
