One look at Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Twitter feed and that of Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe and you'd think they were long lost pals.
The last few days have seen a stream of tweets from Modi – who is currently on his five-day Japan tour – and Abe, professing their mutual admiration.
This is the first major foreign visit by the Indian leader since he took the helm in May.
"Very enjoyable to have dinner together with PM Modi last night," Abe tweeted on Saturday from Kyoto – the first stop on Modi's visit.
"Looking forward to seeing PM Modi again in Tokyo tomorrow." he added. Modi is among the four people Abe follows on Twitter.
And the love was by no means unrequited.
Words can't describe PM @AbeShinzo's great hospitality. It indicates his special affection for India & his strong faith in India-Japan ties.
Judging by their enthusiasm, Modi's visit to Japan has fortified economic and security ties between the countries.
"Both of us are very optimistic about scripting a new chapter in the strong bond between India & Japan, which will benefit our nations," Modi tweeted.
"Here's to a long-lasting friendship b/w our two countries," the Government of Japan responded on its Twitter page.
