Message from Ambassador
HE Ms Tania Laumanulupe ‘o Talafolika, Tupou
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary
Malo e lelei & Konichiwa, welcome to the website of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Tonga in Tokyo.
Tonga is located in the Pacific Ocean and our Polynesian ancestry is of navigation. For Tongans our motto “God and Tonga are my Inheritance” reminds us of our responsibility first and foremost to God and the stewardship bestowed upon us, over our islands and Pacific Ocean, which have been both our historical highways of communication and a source of sustenance. We hence have the responsibility to protect and preserve this environment for future generations.
Tonga and Japan mutually draw bridges across the Pacific Ocean to engage on issues of climate change, health, education, trade and sports to name a few.
We hope as you navigate the pages act as a gateway and guide for Tonga – true experience can only be garnered in Tonga, so please visit Tonga and see for yourself the beauty of our traditions, culture and the hospitality of the Friendly Islands of Tonga.
