Federica Mogherini travelled to Tokyo 21-23 October where she attended the enthronement ceremony of Emperor Naruhito alongside representatives of over 190 countries and international organisations. As Japan is one of the EU's closest and most like-minded partners, Federica Mogherini, discussed the strong EU-Japan partnership, regional and international issues, as well as EU-Japan security and defence cooperation, including on cyber and maritime security and crisis management, with Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi and Defence Minister Tarō Kōno. She held a meeting with Fumio Kishida, member of the National Diet of Japan and former Foreign Minister, and participated in a roundtable with representatives of academia and civil society. The trip was rounded off with a meeting with Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzō Abe.
