The two will reportedly ride the bullet train back to Tokyo.

At the same time, Abe hoped that Prime Minister Modi will enjoy the attractive autumn in Japan, including the snow-capped Mout Fuji and autumn-tinted leaves, besides experiencing Japanese cutting-edge technology.

Prime Minister Modi's pet "Digital India" initiative seeks to improve online infrastructure by increasing Internet connectivity or by making the country digitally empowered in the field of technology.

Abe and Modi then visited a factory of industrial robot manufacturer Fanuc in Yamanashi before moving on to the prime minister's holiday home in the nearby village of Narusawa.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday held a series of meetings with top Japanese leaders, including Foreign Minister Taro Kono and held productive, focused discussions on bilateral, regional and global issues.

After arriving in Yamanashi earlier today, PM Modi was hosted by Abe for a private lunch at the latter's personal villa near Lake Kawaguchi in Yamanashi.

Modi, who arrived in Japan last evening to attend the 13th India-Japan annual summit, has said the partnership between the two countries has been fundamentally transformed and it has been strengthened as a "special strategic and global partnership".

Besides bilateral issues, the two leaders are expected to deliberate on a range of regional and global issues, including the situation in the Indo-Pacific region.

Japan's role in India's economic journey continues to be integral to its transformation, Kumar added. "This data is becoming the tool for service delivery", he said in a statement. These island bases lie northwest of the strategic Malacca Strait - a critical transit link between the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea.

PM Modi also met several Japanese venture capitalists and attended the business leaders forum on Monday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi began the second day of his Japan visit by addressing the Indian community in Tokyo.

Abe is also likely to pledge the provision of low-interest loans worth more than 300 billion yen (US$2.68 billion), including ones to help India's 500km high-speed railway project, Japanese government sources said.

"I have always believed and stated that the relationship between Japan and India is blessed with the largest potential in the world", he added. Sharing his thoughts in the 49th edition of Mann Ki Baat today, Mr Modi said, wherever there will be a talk of world peace, India's name and contribution will be written in golden letters.

The Summit will also focus on cooperation between New Delhi and Tokyo on India's development initiatives.

Defence purchases from Japan will also be on the agenda.
