Japanese ambassador and wife clean Saudi beach

Were photographed by beach stroller

Japan’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia and his wife took time out of the routine diplomatic work on Tuesday and went to a beach for cleaning.

A Saudi man strolling on the Jeddah Corniche in West Saudi Arabia captured images of the couple cleaning the beach without realizing he is the Japanese ambassador.

“I asked them if I can take pictures because I admired what they were doing…I was surprised when I learned that he is the Japanese ambassador and his wife,” the Saudi told the Arabic language daily Sada.
