      On 26 February, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania, Gabrielius Landsbergis, conferred the Foreign Ministry’s award of honour – Lithuania’s Diplomacy Star – on the Honorary Consul General of Lithuania in Japan Shigehiro Komaru for his merits in fostering bilateral relations between Lithuania and Japan, as well as initiatives that contribute to the deepening of relations between our countries and strategic partnership.

      According to the Foreign Minister, the strategic partnership between Lithuania and Japan announced in 2022 provided new momentum for bilateral ties and opened up new opportunities for cooperation.

      “We greatly appreciate your contribution to fostering economic, cultural and academic relations between Lithuania and Japan,” said Landsbergis.

      From 2019 to 2023, the Honorary Consul General of Lithuania Komaru organised three direct charter flights from Tokyo to Vilnius. Thanks to his efforts, about 600 representatives of various Hiroshima prefecture companies, business associations and higher education institutions arrived in Lithuania. The Honorary Consul General supports Japanese language competitions at Vytautas Magnus University and supports one-week studies of two competition winners at the University of Hiroshima. In January 2024, a permanent exhibition featuring Lithuania’s history, culture and economic achievements was opened at the Lithuania House in Fukuyama.

      Lithuania’s Diplomacy Star has been awarded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania since 2010 for promoting Lithuania abroad and fostering cross-border relations.
