Was he the Tsar's representative on the assumption to the throne of Emperor Hirohito ?

It could be from his stop (which included Japan) on his world tour in 1902. In 1901 he had a liaison with Jeanne Aumont-Lacroix (rumor, seemingly unsubstantiated, having it that he sired a son with her). Vladimir & Marie then sent him, with the Czar’s approval, on a world tour. He left Russian in late 1901 for France and from there embarked on a tour which include stops in Egypt, India, Ceylon, Siam, French Indochina, Japan, Hawaii, California, Chicago and New York. Part of his stay in Japan was around mid-July 1902 where it was covered in the New York Times.

Eric

Hirohito did not succeed to the Japanese throne until the 1920s. Up to 1912 the reigning Emperor was Meiji (Mutsuhito), followed by Taisho (Yoshihito), who spent most of his reign under a regency.

Maybe Boris just went on a pleasure trip to Japan like his cousin Nicholas II if not on an official mission.

As I had posted, he was in Japan as part of a world tour (semi-official at best in that he may have carried out some minor engagements) in July 1902.
