The PM of Japan, Yoshihide Suga, was gifted a sandalwood Buddha statue. Buddhism plays a big role in bringing India and Japan together. The thoughts and ideals of Lord Buddha reverberate far and wide in Japan. During his previous visits to Japan, PM Modi has visited Buddhist temples in the country as well.
