The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, has tweeted in Japanese for the first time, to talk to the people of Japan directly in Japanese. A team of Japanese volunteers helped with the translation. Following is the English translation of the tweets: 

"On 30th August I will begin my visit to Japan. I am keenly looking forward to the visit, which will boost relations between our two nations. 

Japan visit will be my 1st bilateral visit outside the subcontinent. I was to visit in early July but could not due to Parliament session. 

I see the Japan visit as an opportunity to take our ties with Japan to a new level and increase cooperation in various fields. 

I will visit Tokyo & Kyoto and will interact with all sections of Japanese society from students, political leaders to captains of industry. 

Have very warm memories of visiting Japan as a CM. The hospitality & the immense scope for cooperation left a deep impression in my mind. 

The scale of innovation & level of precision among the people of Japan is admirable. Both our nations can learn a lot from each other. 

Am particularly excited to meet PM Abe. I deeply respect his leadership & enjoy a warm relationship with him from previous meetings. 

Japan's friendship with India is time tested. We are two vibrant democracies committed to advancing peace and prosperity in the world."
