The Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII) spent four weeks in Japan in 1922. He arrived in April, having been advised it was the best month to see the cherry blossom. The official visit included a banquet at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, tours of Shintō shrines and the unveiling of the Allied War Memorial at Yokohama.
