New Princess Claire and Prince Félix will be visiting Japan on November 1 to participate in the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the Sophia University in Tokyo. After a religious service at the St. Ignatius' church in Tokyo, the couple will attend an official ceremonial act to celebrate the anniversary taking place in the presence of the Emperor and Empress of Japan. In the evening, Prince Félix and Princess Claire will meet with Luxembourgers living in Japan at a reception hosted by the Luxembourgish embassy.
The University of Luxembourg and the Sophia University are partner universities. Another guest from the Grand Duchy at the celebrations will be Archbishop Jean-Claude Hollerich, who was a professor of German and French and vice-rector of the Sophia University before becoming the head of Archdiocese of Luxembourg. Currently, there are two Luxembourgish Jesuit priests working as professors at the Japanese Catholic university.
