Ambassador of Ireland welcomes visit to Ireland by Her Imperial Highness Princess Takamado

Her Imperial Highness, Princess Takamado will visit Ireland as part of a European trip from 7-10 July.

During her visit she will call on the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins and meet Ireland’s Minister for Justice and Equality, Charles Flanagan.

She will attend a ceremony to mark an exhibition of surimono at the world-famous Chester Beatty Library Museum in Dublin.

The Princess will also visit a child's hospice in Dublin.

Princess Takamado will also travel to Waterford to visit the Lafcadio Hearn Gardens, in Tramore, where the great author spent his summer holidays.

Welcoming the visit, Ireland’s Ambassador to Japan, Anne Barrington, said, “This is a wonderful way to launch the second half of the year celebrating the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Ireland and Japan. It follows a number of high-level visits in both directions, including our Foreign Ministers earlier in the year”.

“This visit underscores the wide range of interests and activities which bring our two countries close together. We hope it will lead to further engagement across all sectors of Japanese and Irish networks for the next 60 years and of course we hope Her Highness will enjoy a wonderful and interesting visit to Ireland”.
