New Zealand will give a white horse to Japan to continue a 50 year tradition.
Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters announced the gift while in Japan.
The sacred white horse, named Kōmaru, represents the enduring relationship between New Zealand and Japan.
The 10-year-old purebred Andalusian will replace the previous white horse, Kōtuku, which died last year.
The tradition began in 1964 after the 1964 Olympics. A white horse was gifted to the Japan Equestrian Association, which transferred him to the Nikko Tōshōgū Shrine.
Following the death of the first horse, another was gifted, and the tradition has continued since.
