Emperor Hirohito of Japan after arriving at Cologne Bonn Airport during his official European tour of 1971. According to Manfred Rademacher, Hirohito was met by more than 300 journalists upon his arrival in Cologne. To get closer Rademacher had climbed the fence which separated the press tribune from the high guest. According to him he used the last frame of his film roll to make this picture.
