(WATCH) How Japan appreciates Davao’s hospitality to Abe
Before leaving for Australia, [Japan’s Prime Minister] Abe and his wife Akie visited the Mindanao Kokusai Daigaku, a Japanese-language school in Davao City, where they were welcomed by students and staff waving Philippine and Japanese flags and were treated to a performance of “Chiisana Sekai” (It’s a Small World).
The 62-year-old leader expressed how delighted he was to see Filipino students “having fun” learning the Japanese language.

Japanese netizens were also impressed with the welcome given by the Davaoeños to their leader.
“It is truly a wonderful welcome party. Certainly, it made me cry,” said one netizen.
“A wonderful welcome, I’m impressed,” said another.
