Prime Minister Modi, who is on a two-day visit to Tokyo, received a rousing welcome on Monday from the Indian diaspora at the Hotel New Otani where he will be staying during his trip.

“Vande Mataram”, “Modi Modi” and “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” slogans reverberated at the hotel as people from the Indian diaspora cheered and waved their flags seeing the Prime Minister.  Many children were also present with their parents waving their hands at the PM or holding placards with the word “Welcome” written on them. The PM interacted with one of the kids present there and signed an autograph for him. “Waah! Where did you learn Hindi from?… You know it pretty well?” PM Modi told kids who were awaiting his autograph with Indian kids. “…Can’t speak much, but I understand… PM read my message, and I also got his signature, so I am very happy..,” said Wizuki, a grade 5 student who interacted with PM Modi.

Earlier this morning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Tokyo to participate in the Quad summit on May 24 at the invitation of Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. After landing in Tokyo, PM tweeted, “Landed in Tokyo. Will be taking part in various programmes during this visit including Quad Summit, meeting fellow Quad leaders, interacting with Japanese business leaders and the vibrant Indian diaspora.”
