President Abdul Hamid has joined the enthronement ceremony of Japanese Emperor Naruhito.

The ceremony took place at the State Hall of Imperial Palace at 1pm (local time) on Tuesday, reports UNB.

The enthronement ceremony was held as a part of national ceremony (from Oct 22 to October 31) to celebrate the enthronement of the emperor.

Some 2,000 people, including heads of states and other dignitaries, from 174 countries attended the enthronement ceremony.

The president is scheduled to visit Yokohama, Japan’s second largest city, on Wednesday.

Kosovo President HashimThaçi will meet Abdul Hamid at Hotel New Otani in Tokyo on the same day.

The Bangladesh president will also attend a banquet to be hosted by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Hotel New Otani on the same day, as part of the ceremony.
