An eight-member delegation of Japan Coast Guard visited Regional Headquarters of the Coast Guard at Worli in Mumbai on Monday.
The visit was aimed at strengthening the ties between the Coast Guards of two countries for better co-ordination and joint operations in future, a defence release said.
The Japan Coast Guard has had a regular presence in the Bay of Bengal since 2000 as part of 'Sahyog-Kaijin' exercises with the Indian Coast Guard, it said.
A joint Indo-Japan Coast Guard exercise was held in January this year off Chennai coast.
