After completing the term of Greek Ambassador and his Spouse, H.E. Mr. Constantin Cakioussis, the Greek Ambassador to Japan, and Mrs. Ioanna Charikleia Giannakarou left Japan on December 31 and returned to Athens.
A farewell reception for the Greek Ambassador and his Spouse was held at the Greek ambassador’s residence in Tokyo in late December. Guests included business leaders, supporters, and friends of the embassy who paid tribute to the couple.
Prior to the farewell reception, Miss Hoshino Tsuji, the Kyoto International Tourism Ambassador, presented a beautiful Uchikake Kimono to thank the Greek Ambassador and Ioanna for their great contributions. On December 26, 2021, H.E. Mr. Constantin Cakioussis and Ioanna donated two olive trees grown in front of the entrance of the official residence to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine.
The Cakioussis were a very popular couple as both devoted themselves to the friendship between Japan and Greece. They’ve been good friends and will really be missed.
