31-08-2014

KYOTO: The partnership, which focuses on how to preserve heritage while building smart cities, was signed between Kyoto Mayor Daisaku Kadokawa and India’s Ambassador to Japan Deepa Gopalan Wadhwa, ministry of external affairs spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached Japan on Saturday on a five-day official visit and was received by his Japanese counterpart Abe in Kyoto.

Earlier, Akbaruddin said that Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan, had been included in Modi’s schedule as it “dovetails into Modi’s emphasis on rejuvenation of cities while preserving their cultural heritage.”
