Ahmedabad, Sep 13 (IBNS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, on Wednesday, as the latter will be on a two-day visit to the country.

A series of performances, showcasing cultural diversity of India, will greet Japanese PM Abe as he will step outside Ahmedabad airport.

On Wednesday, the Prime Ministers of the two countries are scheduled to visit Sabarmati Ashram, established by Mahatma Gandhi on the banks of the Sabarmati River, Sidi Saiyyid Ni Jaali, a famous 16th century mosque in Ahmedabad and Dandi Kutir, the museum dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi, at the Mahatma Mandir.

On Thursday, PM Modi and his counterpart Abe will hold the 12th India-Japan Annual Summit, at Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar.

This will be the fourth Annual Summit between Prime Minister Modi and Prime Minister Abe. The two leaders will review the recent progress in the multifaceted cooperation between India and Japan under the framework of their 'Special Strategic and Global Partnership' and will set its future direction.

The two leaders will attend a public function to mark the commencement of work of India’s first high-speed rail project between Ahmedabad and Mumbai, on the second day of Abe's visit to the country.

The train is expected to significantly reduce the travel time between the two cities.

Japan is a pioneer in high-speed rail networks, and its Shinkansen bullet trainis among the fastest in the world.
