The foreign minister blood runs deep in this guy, he just can't get enough sight seeing and good food 'n wine.

Keep flying around

this guy is - funny,having a lot of LNG around the corner in Sakhalin but still going for nice trip to Australia

It makes perfect sense to visit the largest supplier of LNG to Japan, to secure even more imports. Sakhalin is not an option as any support for the evil Russian regime is to be avoided where other options exist. Not doing anything to secure additional energy supplies would be worthy of criticism, but actually taking the right steps is laudable. Australia is a reliable trade partner for Japan and the region and a much better fit than tainted Russian supplies that help fund Russian aggression and territorial expansion while killing tens of thousands of innocent people in the process. Nobody in the right mind would suggest doing business with Russia.

Hope this goes towards making life better for the local people. Nothing the politicians do consider the people who live in Japan, but only how much money they can line their own pockets.

Speaking to radio on Monday, Albanese said: "I will be back there [Perth] in two weeks’ time... And I'll also be hosting a bilateral meeting with the Japanese prime minister. Rather than bringing the prime minister of Japan to Canberra or Melbourne, I'll be taking him to Perth."

For a man who spends a lot of time banging on about reducing carbon emissions, Airline Albo does like to fly.

Just another hypocrite stealing taxpayers' money.

Coming to my city…rare for a foreign leader!

@prionking, Albo won’t be the only one on the plane…would you prefer he organised a Teams meeting instead?

AustPaul; How bout it? Kishida to Perth! Spun out. Wonder if he will do the good Aussie thing and grab a late-night kebab in Northbridge. No worries mate! All good ay!

Bang out the snaggers! ( Yeah I know, over the top, been here too long ;)

Obviously he won't be the only one on the plane, but just wish he didn't have such glaring double standards. I don't care if he flies, as long as he doesn't make policies that penalise normal Aussies for doing the same through high fuel taxes and carbon prices, etc. Politicians in all the major parties are becoming even more blatant in their one rule for us, another for the plebs attitude.

Solar and wind power are the cheapest forms of power today, but most countries are still heavily reliant on LNG for now. It takes time to change where the power comes from.

At least Japan is not looking to use Australian coal.

It is much better to buy LNG from Australia than from Russia, as Putin uses the profits from Russia's petroleum and mineral exports to invade his neighbors. Buying from Russia is like helping to arm the enemy who is looking to invade you.

Not in Japan.

Japan is begging for a discount from Australia and US/Canada. Of course, it won't happen.

Japan's only choice is to rely on Southeast Asian energies but these ASEAN states have their own economic needs to recover from the ongoing economic depression.

Japan doesn't have anyone left to sell any affordable energy.

I have always followed royals and heads of the state, now I am following his excellency prime minister Kishida, his excellency's billatheral meeting with the Australian leaders in Australia should be fun for him and his envoy, in modern international affairs' management, most deals can be done and done over the secure internet with digitally binding and signing contracts as a result there is not much to do in person. Australian government has a lot of time to prepare for Japan's second highest leader to visit, I hope there to be good ice cream.

I hope Kishida not sell his soul while in office, how much is it to buy someone is soul these days, I assume every soul to be sold at different prices, how much is it to win a political prime minister election in these days, not everyone voted for Mr. Kishida, but I am in approval of his performance I think he does his job well, it is a very difficult job to do, as a result very few Japanese are qualified to function as a prime minister.

Thank you Kishida for your excellency and serving with your best of ability.
