The Chinese People's Liberation Army(PLA) Naval missile destroyer "Shenzhen" arrived in Tokyo on Wednesday morning for a four-day visit.

"Shenzhen," with 345 officials and soldiers onboard headed by Rear Admiral Xiao Xinnian, vice chief of staff of the South China Sea Fleet of the PLA Navy, entered into the Tokyo Bay earlier in the morning and was led to the port by the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force (MSDF)'s frigate "Thunder".

The 9:55 a.m. port call at Harumi wharf, which is close to central Tokyo, is the first of its kind in the history of PLA's navy.


The Chinese People's Liberation Army(PLA) Naval missile destroyer "Shenzhen" arrives in Tokyo on Nov. 28, 2007 for a four-day visit.

During the visit through Dec. 1, while Chinese naval officials are meeting with Japanese officials from the defense ministry and SDF, Chinese crew members will go around central Tokyo for sightseeing and shopping, and will conduct a variety of exchanges, including a soccer match, with their Japanese counterparts.

The two sides will visit each other's warships, and plan to offer a joint bands performance for the civilians.

The visit of "Shenzhen," which left the Zhanjiang port of Southern China's Guangdong Province on Nov. 21, is at the invitation of the MSDF.
