I LOVE JAPAN ❤ 日本の今を伝えたい! オバマ夫人来日中


US First Lady Michelle Obama is on her first visit to Japan. She arrived in Tokyo on Wednesday to push U.S. efforts to give more adolescent girls in developing countries access to school and finish their education through an initiative called “Let Girls Learn”. Mrs. Obama is visiting Japan and then Cambodia, which are among Asia’s richest and poorest nations respectively.

In Tokyo, she announced, along with her Japanese counterpart Akie Abe, a partnership supporting girls’ education.  She also had separate meetings with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe as well as with Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko.


On Friday she is on her way to Kyoto, before traveling to Cambodia.

White House staff said the program also reflects a U.S. commitment to be more involved in the Asia-Pacific region.
