Delegates from Japan Joint Staff College (JJSC) headed by Lieutenant General Tsugio Ishino, the Commandant visited on June 5, 2013 the Headquarters of the Philippine Navy (HPN) and paid a courtesy call on the Navy Chief, Vice Admiral Jose Luis M. Alano. The visit to HPN is part of their activities in connection with the study tour to the Philippines.

The visit is an integral part of the JJSC Curriculum (Overseas Tour) which aims to enhance their understanding of the national stability of countries in the Asia-Pacific Region and enhance bilateral relations.

The delegation arrived to the Philippines on June 2, 2013. Their visit will include courtesy calls on the Chief of Staff, AFP, National Defence College of the Philippines, AFPCGSC Commandant and other Major Service Chiefs.

Prior to their visit to the PN, the delegation held a wreathlaying ceremony at the Rizal Monument in Luneta Park.
