YANGON, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar State Counselor and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi left Tuesday to pay a five-day official visit to Japan.

It will be Suu Kyi's first trip to Japan after the new government took office in April this year.

During her stay, Suu Kyi is expected to have talks with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and meet the Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko.

The two sides are expected to touch on labor issue of the two countries, according to the Labor Department.

Suu Kyi's trip came five months after Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida visited Myanmar in May.

The two countries vowed to continue cooperation as development partners.

According to official statistics, Japan's investment in Myanmar amounted to 674.227 million U.S. dollars in 88 projects as of September this year since late 1988, ranking the 11th in Myanmar's foreign investors' line-up.
