This weekend, President Trump will arrive in Tokyo, the first of two trips to Japan in a month, on a visit where both governments seek to repair an alliance that has seen cracks in the last two years. https://lat.ms/2wkpD56
In a first, Trump will meet with the newly crowned Emperor Naruhito. He’ll be the first foreign leader to meet with the emperor. https://lat.ms/2Wo5pWS
Also on the agenda? A sumo match—and a tour of a Japanese destroyer that its navy plans to convert into the country’s first aircraft carrier since World War II, specifically designed for U.S.-made fighter jets. https://lat.ms/2wkpD56
In April, Trump welcomed Japan’s Shinzo Abe to the White House. The main topic on the table: trade. https://lat.ms/2Wls3iM
