All national dailies wrote that Japanese Cardinal Maeda, who met with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Monday, said that the Pope expressed his desire to visit Japan, including Hiroshima and Nagasaki, around the end of next year. If the plan is realized, Pope Francis will become the first pope to travel to Japan since Pope John Paul II visited the nation in 1981.
