TOKYO: President Donald Trump has arrived Japan on state visit, will be first world leader to meet new Emperor Naruhito.

Japan has offered high honors, golf and the chance to present a “Trump Cup” at a sumo wrestling championship.
Similarly, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, arguably Trump’s closest friend on the world stage, will continue a years-long campaign that so far appears to have spared Japan from far more debilitating U.S. actions.

The stakes are high. U.S. tariffs could cripple Japan’s auto industry, while North Korea remains a destabilizing threat in the region. But this trip, the first of two Trump is expected to make to Japan in the next six weeks, is more of a social call meant to highlight the alliance between the countries and the friendship between their leaders.
