Description

Japan's Emperor Hirohito and Empress Nagako setting out from the Williamsburg Inn on a carriage ride with Colonial Williamsburg president Carlisle Humelsine. The Emperor and Empress requested that their visit be identical to the visit of Queen Elizabeth II in 1957. Accommodations were made at the Williamsburg Inn and around the Historic Area. Security was tighter than normal, due to a threat against the Emperor and Empress from the Japanese Red Army.
