Does any of you which route Gneisenau used to go to Japan? Did they pass through the Suez canal?

Sung,

The cruiser Köln also visited Japan in 1933:

Passenger liners from Europe normally went via the Suez Canal to Asia.It made the trip more exotic and added some sight-seeing.

The white dress HJ belts were specially commissioned by the RJF stab for this event, they were not the normal official dress issue.
Just in case you did not know. It was to contrast with the uniform and make them look smarter.

Thanks Matt.

I'm curious to know the size of the delegation and if any well-known figures went on the trip.

Kitahara Hakushu (北原白秋) wrote the lyrics for a welcome song for the delegation of Hitler Jugend.

燦たり輝く、ハーケンクロイツ
 
ようこそ遥々、西なる盟友

いざ今見えん、朝日に迎へて

我等ぞ東亜の青年日本

万歳、ヒットラー・ユーゲント

万歳、ナチス
