Prime Minister Narendra Modi landed in Japan on Friday to attend the G7 Summit as a chief guest at the invitation of his Japanese counterpart, Fumio Kishida.

Today, PM Modi visited the Peace Memorial Museum, where he observed the documented exhibits and signed the visitor's book.

He also met Brazilian President Lula da Silva and UK PM Rishi Sunak.
