Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdul-aziz al Saud and his thousand strong entourage have arrived for a four day trade visit in Japan, along with two golden escalators and a demand for a fleet of dozens of limousines.

The king’s delegation arrived in Japan on 10 aircraft and, according to Japanese media, the entourage is so large, even Japanese government officials didn’t have an accurate number of how many to expect.
In preparation for the royal visit, 1,200 rooms in Tokyo’s most luxurious hotels were booked by the delegation for three nights following their arrival over the weekend.
The trip is part of a month long Asian tour which will also see him visit China and the Maldives.
A fleet of limousines have also reportedly been ordered to ferry him around the city as well as two golden escalators to help him on and off his private jet, The Daily Mail reported.
Saudi Arabia is the largest supplier of oil to Japan, which lacks many fossil fuel resources other than coal.
King Salman will also visit the Maldives and China during his Asia trip. In the Maldives, the king is expected to be met with opposition following reports that an entire atoll of small islands could be purchased by the Saudis.
While the king is courting Asian leaders, his son, Deputy Crown Prince, and Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman are headed to the US to meet with President Donald Trump.
