Princess Kako to visit Greece to mark 125 years of ties

The Japanese government said Princess Kako, a niece of Emperor Naruhito, will travel to Greece in May to mark 125 years since diplomatic ties between the countries were established.

The younger daughter of Crown Prince Fumihito and Crown Princess Kiko will travel from May 25 to June 1 to commemorate the "Year of Culture and Tourism Between Japan and Greece." This will be her third official overseas visit, following trips to Austria and Hungary in 2019 and Peru in November last year.

The Imperial Household Agency said she would depart from Tokyo's Haneda airport on a commercial flight, travelling via Britain before arriving in the Greek capital, Athens.

The princess will pay a courtesy call to President Katerina Sakellaropoulou and attend a commemorative event to mark the 125th anniversary of the friendly relationship.

She is also planning on visiting the Parthenon, located in the World Heritage Site of the Acropolis of Athens, as well as a facility for the hearing-impaired and an orphanage.
