one of the article mentions it is a state visit, the Petra article just says its an official one so I cant be too sure.
King Abdullah and Queen Rania's paid a state visit to Japan seven years ago (december 1999) , which, i believe, was 5 days long.
There aren't that many pictures from that visit so Im hoping this one will be different.

King Abdullah urges renewed peace talks

King Abdullah of Jordan, speaking in an exclusive interview with The Yomiuri Shimbun, stressed the need to relaunch the Middle East peace process and pledged continued support to the administration of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to stabilize the Iraqi situation.
King Abdullah, who will visit Japan from Wednesday, expressed hope that Japan will play a "vital role" in Middle East affairs because it is "the strongest donor socially and economically" for the region.
Following are excerpts from the interview held at the king's residence in Amman. Yomiuri Shimbun

This is an official visit, not a state visit. I can tell by the lack of ceremony when they arrived at the airport, for one. The Jordanian royal couple made a state visit to Japan in 1999, not long after coming to the throne. In the West, it is customary for a head of state to make only one state visit to a country during their time in office or on the throne. The few times I've seen a state visit by the same person to the same country, it has been two or three decades after the first one, the countries have a very special relationship (such as the Scandinavia kingdoms) or there's a special reason for the state visit (such as the centennial of Norway's independence, when King Harald visited Queen Elizabeth II a second time in a decade or so).

If this had been a state visit, Abdullah and Rania would have done more today than just arrive at the airport. They would have had a very busy day, from the formal welcoming ceremony in the morning to various engagements in the afternoon to a gala dinner in the evening. The second day would look much the same, with public engagements and a return dinner. Then more engagements the third day before leaving. In essence, their visit would have looked a lot like their state visit to the Netherlands in November.

Wow! I guess I've been out of the loop, I didn't realise they were going to Japan. Does anybody know if their itinerary is available and what events they will be attending?
