June 14, 2018: Mr. Basir Hamdard, First Secretary and Head of Political Affairs of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, visited with great pleasure the Meiji Jingu Iris Garden including the Special Iris Viewing at the Meiji Jingu Shrine in Yoyogi, Tokyo.

He enjoyed the walk amongst the beautiful flowers which recharged him with new energy for the whole week. He expressed his gratitude towards the Meiji Jingu Shrine for inviting him, and he promised to return next year.
