On his first return trip to Japan since complete heart failure in August 1977, Herbert W. Armstrong met with Dr. Makato Fujita, assistant to the president of Tokyo’s Waseda University, the Israeli ambassador and Japanese Prime Minister Masayoshi Ohira, from April 23 through 29, 1979.

A banquet attended by over 250 Japanese businessmen, political elite and international ambassadors was held in Mr. Armstrong’s honor at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. His general-consul introduced him by recollecting sentiments expressed by his good friend, brother of the Emperor Hirohito, Prince Mikasa, that Mr. Armstrong was a “spiritual [Henry] Kissinger” who had built bonds physically, educationally, culturally and spiritually worldwide. Of particular note were achievements of the Ambassador International Cultural Foundation’s 42 projects in 26 countries, and also its joint involvement with Japan in archeological excavation in Israel.
