After completing their official visit to Vietnam, the Emperor and Empress of Japan have paid a short visit to Thailand, to pay their respects to the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko laid a wreath of flowers at the late King’s altar in the Dusit Maha Prasat Throne Hall at the Grand Palace in Bangkok on Sunday, before signing the official condolence book. The late King and the Japanese Imperial Couple were close friends for over five decades.

Their day concluded with a private audience with Thailand’s new monarch, King Maha Vajiralongkorn. This was the King’s first meeting with a foreign head of state since taking the throne late last year. The Emperor and Empress had earlier met with Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.
