This is the second time that Mr. and Mrs. Bhutan have visited Bhutan since the official visit in 1997, and this was the first overseas trip for Jinjin.
At the airport, Akihito and Ariko Akishino who arrived first got off the talup and received a bouquet from local children.
Next, I greeted three princesses of King Wanchuk's sister, received a white cloth called “Kadar” with the meaning of welcome, and shook hands with each princess.
About 10 minutes later, Mr. Akishino also arrived at Paro Airport and got off the tarup with a smile.
After this, Satoshi-san walked on the red carpet while exchanging words with the princess following the couple, and was occasionally smiling.
