Kenya and Japan established diplomatic relations in 1963 and the two countries have since enjoyed warm and cordial relations with resident diplomatic missions in their respective capitals at ambassadorial level. Currently, Kenya hosts one of the largest Japanese communities in Africa (about 800 as at October 2016).
Today, Japan's amabassador to Kenya visited President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi. This is according to a social media post by The Embassy of Japan in Kenya that read, "His Excellency Ambassador Horie paid a courtesy call on President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House Nairobi. Ambassador Horie expressed his appreciation to President Kenyatta and his hope for continued support and assistance. Ambassador and Madam also performed Kiswahili songs for the President."
The social media post by The Embassy of Japan in Kenya was followed by photos showing the ambassador, his wife and President Uhuru at State House. One of the photos showed ambassador Horie and his wife singing while three female Japanese Embassy staff played musical instruments in the background.
