Two very distinguished Japanese statesmen and one diminutive Jap anese songbird co-operated to make the reception given last evening by the Japanese ambassador, Almaro Sato, for Viscount Ishll and the other members of the Japanese mission one of the most memorable entertain ments of a memorable summer sea son. Given a perfect host, a guest of honor brilliant, suave and distinguish ed, such a winsome little person as Mme. Tamakl Mlura to sing, the long ballroom of the Wlllard hung with flags of the allied nations, through which the lights gleamed rosily, and a representative company of official folk, diplomats, and resident society there were the Ingredients for an unforgettable evening. The Japanese ambassador's hospi tality in compliment to his country men began with a dinner for 100 guests, given In the red room of .the Wlllard. Dancing was a feature of the reception in the great ball room atop the hotel which' followed the dinner, and by way of a delightful Interlude Mme. Mlura, the Japanese prima donna of the Boston Opera Company, gavs a song recital, with Mrs. Frank Keyes as accompanist. For this a little stage was erected In the small ball room, where the guests were seated comfortably. The guests to dine were seated at one long table arranged In the shape of a hollow cross, with the Japanese colors, red and white, lavishly used In the decorations, and the flags of Japan and the United States dominat ing the room. In the company were the French Ambassador and Mme. Jusserand, the Italian Ambassador, Count dl Cellere; the Russian Am hassador.
