Home Front Defense Minister Matan Vilnai flew Saturday night to Japan as a guest of Minister for Disaster Management Tatuso Hirano.

Vilnai will tour the city of Fukushima which was hit by a tsunami earlier this year.

It will be the first visit of an Israeli minister to Japan since the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in March.

The two ministers are expected to sign an agreement aimed at increasing cooperation between Israel and Japan in emergency management.
