NEW DELHI: They may be here only for 2 days, but Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie Abe took out time to celebrate the Indian fashion.



While his wife sported a beautiful pink coloured salwar-kameez paired with a cream-hued dupatta, Shinzo donned white kurta pajama and a blue Indian-style Nehru jacket, similar to that of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which he wears during his foreign visits.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe took part in an eight-kilometre-long roadshow with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a first of its kind by a foreign leader, from Ahmedabad Airport to Sabarmati Aashram located on the banks of the River Sabarmati.



The Japanese Prime Minister will next attend the India-Japan annual summit meeting, wherein the two leaders are expected to focus on enhancing bilateral and strategic ties.



The 12th edition of the summit, which will be the fourth meeting between India and Japan, will be held in Gandhinagar.



The two leaders will review the recent progress in the multifaceted co-operation between India and Japan under the framework of their 'Special Strategic and Global Partnership' and will set its future direction.



Prime Minister Modi and the Japanese PM will also attend a function to mark the commencement of work of India's first high-speed rail project between Ahmedabad and Mumbai.



The train is expected to significantly reduce the travel time between the two cities. Japan is a pioneer in high-speed rail networks, and its Shinkansen bullet train is among the fastest in the world.



An India-Japan Business Plenary will also be held.



The leaders will also visit the Sidi Saiyyid Ni Jaali - a famous 16th century mosque in Ahmedabad. Besides, the two leaders will visit Dandi Kutir, the museum dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi, at the Mahatma Mandir.
