Remarks by His Majesty the Emperor
at the State Banquet in Honor of
His Majesty King Mohammed VI
The Imperial Palace Tokyo,
November 28, 2005
I wish to extend a heartfelt welcome to His Majesty King Mohammed VI of the Kingdom of Morocco, who is visiting Japan on a State Visit. It is a great pleasure for me to spend this evening here with you.
Your Majesty first visited Japan in 1987 on an Official Visit in your capacity as Crown Prince at the time. My father Emperor Showa hosted a banquet at the Imperial Palace, and Your Majesty had the opportunity to visit many places in Kyoto as well. We also invited Your Majesty to the Crown Prince’s Residence on that occasion, and I fondly recall that we spent pleasant times together. I am grateful that Your Majesty attended the Funeral Ceremony of Emperor Showa two years later as Crown Prince, and Your Majesty’s brother, His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Raschid, attended the Ceremony of my Accession to the Throne. From Japan, the Crown Prince as well as Prince and Princess Takamado have visited Morocco, and I am grateful for the warm hospitality Your Majesty has graciously extended to each one of them...... http://www.kunaicho.go.jp/okotoba/ok...l#1128bansan-e
