Top five cultural moments from President Trump's official visit to Japan

Trump launches Asia trip with a warning to North Korea

U.S. President Donald Trump pours fish food out as Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe looks on while they were feeding carps before their working lunch at Akasaka Palace in Tokyo, Japan November 6, 2017.

Japanese first lady Akie Abe took her American counterpart to visit the Kyobashi Tsukiji Elementary School in Tokyo, mindful of Melania Trump's enjoyment of children's company while on foreign trips. The two ladies had a brief chat after posing for photos in the store's VIP lounge.

Wrapping up the first stop in the president's five-country swing through Asia, President Trump and the first lady were treated to several Japanese cultural moments over the business of worldwide diplomacy.

Two "ama" pearl divers in their traditional white costumes, their goggles pulled up on top of their heads and carrying the baskets they would use to collect the pearl oysters, joined them as a store manager explained different types of pearls and how they are gathered and assembled into jewelry. Ama divers, which translates to mean "ocean ladies", are women who dive for pearls oysters, and shellfish without scuba equipment in a tradition that's more than a thousand years old in Japan.

"Wonderful visit with Mrs. Abe today!"

While she and Mrs. Abe perused Mikimoto Pearl's offerings, their husbands were meeting and playing golf.

Ms. Trump learned about how Kokichi Mikimoto, the founder of the Mikimoto brand, successfully harvested the world's first semi-spherical pearl from an oyster through human intervention in 1893, and about the ancient Japanese practice of harvesting pearls. "Mikimoto had discovered the secret to cultivating attractive pearls of such quality that they rivaled natural pearls", according to Mikimoto's website, adding that the firm went on to obtain the first patent for cultured pearls. His 12-day tour includes stops in Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.
