Prime Minister Narendra Modi's five-day visit to Japan is set to wrap up on Wednesday, but several moments from the trip will last long in the public memory in India, given that the PM stepped out of character to indulge in several fun activities.

Modi enthusiastically played the traditional Taiko drums with surprising skill, and he also amused by picking up a flute. At a tea ceremony hosted by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Modi also used the chopsticks and had tea at the traditional ceremony. To WATCH Modi play the instruments, CLICK HERE. 

The Prime Minister, apart from scoring several important economic deals in Japan, also scored points for his gregarious persona.
