President Barack Obama has arrived in Tokyo, the first stop on his four-nation tour of Asia.
Obama arrived at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport Friday after a stopover at a U.S. military base in Alaska, where he addressed American troops.
He was to meet with Japan’s Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama later Friday evening and hold a news conference. Before leaving for an economic summit in Singapore, Obama also was scheduled to greet Japanese Emperor Akihito and deliver a policy speech on Asia.
After Singapore, Obama is to visit China and South Korea.
