First, they greeted each other in the Oriental fashion, and after did so in the Western way. Pope Francis met with Koei Morikawa, the leader of Tendai Buddhism, a branch born more than 1200 years ago. 

On his way to the inter-religious meeting for peace in Assisi, he stopped by Rome to visit Pope Francis. 

Morikawa was accompanied by a large delegation. He gave Pope Francis several gifts, including this cane. 

In return, Pope Francis gave him a copy of his encyclical Laudato si'. Then, they said farewell in the same way they met, with a bow and a handshake.
