Prince Harry says its good to be in Japan as he arrives ahead of sports summit

The Duke of Sussex has been pictured shortly after he touched down in Tokyo, Japan ahead of his appearance at the ISPS Sports Values Summit-Special Edition.

Harry, wearing a dark shirt and baseball cap that featured the Archewell Foundation logo, was joined by his close friend and polo teammate Nacho Figueras for his arrival today, Tuesday, August 8.

A video broadcast on Japanese TV network ANN News showed the Duke beaming as he walked through Haneda Airport.

One reporter could be heard off camera asking Harry: "How do you like to be in Japan for the first time in four years?" And he replied: "Good to see you again."

The Duke arrived in Japan ahead of his attendance at the ISPS (International Sports Promotion Society) Sports Values Summit tomorrow.

He will join a panel discussion with former New Zealand rugby player Dan Carter, Sentebale chair Sophie Chandauka, Invictus Games gold medallist Steve James and the Rector of South Africa's Stellenbosch University Professor Wim de Villiers.

Also expected to be present are Sentebale chairwoman Sophie Chandauka and Royal Australian Navy Veteran and Invictus Games gold medallist Steve James.

ISPS is a sponsor of the Sentebale Polo Cup, which Harry will be joining in Singapore on August 12.

Harry and Argentinian professional Nacho will attend the Duke's annual fundraising polo match in the country which he has said will help disadvantaged young people affected by HIV/Aids.

Speaking last month, Harry said: "The annual Polo Cup is essential to Sentebale's vital work ensuring children and young people are healthy, resilient, and able to thrive.

"The funds raised this year will support our clubs and camps programme, which provides intensive psychosocial support to young people living with HIV.

"In a time where being HIV positive is no longer a death sentence, we are empowering young people to know their status, stay healthy, and eliminate the stigma so that they can break the cycle."

Harry's appearance comes just days after it emerged that he and Meghan had bought the rights to a hit romantic novel Meet Me At The Lake for roughly £3million in a "Hollywood-or-bust move."

It has been pointed out that the love story, written by former journalist Carley Fortune, echoes many parts of Harry and Meghan's real-life relationship.

Set in Toronto, Canada – where Meghan lived when she started dating Harry – it tells the story of a couple who meet in their 30s and deals with themes including childhood trauma over losing a parent in a car crash, mental health and post-natal depression.
