President Andrzej Duda and his wife Agata Kornhauser-Duda welcomed Crown Prince Akishino and Crown Princess Kiko of Japan at the Presidential Palace in Warsaw on Friday. The royal couple also visited Krakow and Lowicz, and are set to leave Poland on Tuesday.

 

The official welcoming ceremony for the royal couple took place on the grounds of the Presidential Palace on Friday morning. Earlier, His Imperial Highness Crown Prince Akishino and Her Imperial Highness Princess Kiko laid a wreath at Warsaw's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

 

The Head of the President's Office Krzysztof Szczerski pointed out that the visit by the royal couple has a special character as it will be Prince Akishino's first official foreign visit as heir to the Japanese throne. The visit also marks the centenary of diplomatic relations between the Poland and Japan. “The Japanese Empire was the first country in Asia, and the fifth in the world, to recognise the government of Prime Minister Ignacy Paderewski”, Szczerski noted.

 

In the southern city of Krakow on Saturday, the Japanese guests were welcomed by the Mayor of Krakow, Jacek Majchrowski, and attended an official breakfast held in the city's historic cloth hall (Sukiennice).

 

Crown Prince Akishino said he was extremely pleased that on such an important occasion as the 100th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between Japan and Poland, he and Crown Princess Kiko could come to Poland and its historical capital Krakow for the first time. "I was looking forward to coming to this beautiful medieval city, which in 2002 was also visited by the Emperor and the Empress," the Crown Prince said, adding that Krakow, like the old capital of Japan - Kyoto has a very rich history and is very popular among Japanese people.

 

On Sunday, the royal couple visited Marie Curie-Sklodowska Museum in Warsaw and the nearby town of Lowicz.(PAP)
