Amid rampant speculation over U.S. President Barack Obama's Asia-tour schedule, the final date of his state visit to Japan is out.
Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida confirmed Friday that Japan will host the U.S. leader on April 24th and 25th.
After his stay in Tokyo, Obama is expected to travel to Korea for two days followed by other stops in Malaysia and the Philippines.
Obama's latest Asia tour comes at a time of strained Seoul-Tokyo ties over Japan's repeated denials of its imperialistic aggressions.
