Both first ladies, American and Japanese, came to the elementary school and about 300 children welcomed them with a school song. Mrs Trump was in a very good mood, she not only posed for photos, shook hands but slapped high fives with the kids.

The presidential couple arrived Tokyo on Sunday. Trump, Abe and their wives stood in a grand plaza outside the Akasaka Palace in Tokyo on Monday as the Japanese Self-Defense Forces honour guard played music.

Akie Abe took Melania Trump to a jewellery shop in downtown Tokyo where they learned about the history of pearls. For Melania who ran the own jewellery business, this lection was very useful and interesting. Then both women had a private dinner with their husbands at a Japanese steakhouse.
