Princess Mako of Japan and Queen Jitsuen Pema Wangchuck of Bhutan

Princess, Mako of Japan in the country's traditional receiving ceremony. 
As princess Mako, officially prepares to leave for Bhutan. Bhutan started to prepare for it. Bhutan set a fire of eagerness to receive the Japanese Princess. This Royal visit is perhaps the first of its kind in the Himalayan kingdom. And we hope this visit may forever remain in the heart of two countries.  

While she is in the country, she is expected to visit some holy sites, have an audience with the King and the Queen at the Golden Throne. She is also expected to meet Japanese overseas cooperation volunteers and attend a flower exhibition in Memorial Chorten in the heart of capital city. Before she leaves for Japan, she is also expected to visit Tiger's nest, popularly known as 'Taktshang,' a Buddhist temple which lies at an altitude of 3,100 meters above sea level.

For Bhutan this Royal visit speaks in volume. It shows the kind of good will bilateral relationship two countries have maintained for so long. Indeed, over the years Japan has nurtured Bhutan with utmost care, loyalty and dedication. For a long period of time Japan has been a great financial power for Bhutan. Japanese have shielded Bhutan in multiple ways than any other country in the world in terms of development of agriculture sectors, bridge constructions and machinery donation. What we are? What we have today all around the country are all because of Government of Japan? Thank them!

I always have a high regards for Japanese people on their high work ethics, morale and high quality work. Often times I see Japanese project –DNC and JICA, a point of reference for quality work. Japan for me is always a place that will remain so special for endless reasons. However, I have a very high regards for Japanese people in Time Management which Bhutanese are ethically very poor at for centuries.

With development in progress, I could see unending values to learn from Japanese people. Therefore, I wish this Royal visit would further wire our existing relations and cooperation to next higher level.

 special token of good will relationship. 
Although, we don't have any metro-politan-cities as your country have in multiple places. We don't have complicated doors to open and smart toilets system to worry about. What we call our only big city in the country is still run by the most assiduous traffic-men. It doesn't mean we run excess in number of heads. We are approximately seven-hundred-thousand living soul. Which you may sometime miss understand as a Robot. We are a firm believer in doing manually by human beings. And they are our traffic men!

All we have is a green environment, which is always ready to serve us the most needed element for survival, which science called it as an Oxygen and literary we called it a Fresh Air. Indeed, our forest are doing their best they can! Country's development are still in rows. It doesn't mean we have stopped working on our long term goals, –the future. It's not the end. 

Country upheld the concept of GNH excessively for all the purposes of life. We practice GNH values even while eating –we sit in circle placing all our food items in center. Our Mother or eldest sister lovingly serve us the meals. We talk only when we finish munching our food. 

However, over the years we started to feel some burnt on our land and forest resources. Since, our government have started to mine even our mountains to fulfill their political pledges.

We have a visionary and selfless Monarchs who works day and night for the benefit of his country. We have the most beautiful Queen with beautiful Heart and with all the quality of a great human beings. As you see Bhutan may not look like what you have seen in different media. However, we have the cleanest and undisturbed environment in the world. Our forest coverage is still with seventy-one percent unused, which other country just dream for it. Therefore, Bhutan is still a carbon negative country in the world.

I take this opportunity to wish people and the Royal Government of Japan continued peace and prosperity for all times.  


I wish Princess a very Happy stay in the Land of Drupkas and safe return. Long Live Wangchuck dynasty, Bhutan and Emperor of Japan!
