US President Donald Trump met with New Emperor Naruhito and his wife Empress Masako on Monday at an official visit amid trade tensions between the two allies.

The new Emperor of Japan and his wife, who studied at Harvard University, met Trump at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo at an official ceremony broadcasted live on Japanese television.

Trump became the first foreign dignitary to receive the new emperor since his inauguration this month, succeeding his father Emperor Akihito, who stepped down in the first step of a Japanese emperor in two centuries.

Trump bent a simple bow and he and his wife Melania greeted the Emperor and his wife before entering the palace where they met Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, his wife Aki and others.

Trump said he was delighted to receive the first official honor from the emperor, who will hold a dinner for Trump and his wife later on Monday. “Over 200 years have passed since this event,” Trump said at dinner on Sunday.

Trump played golf on Sunday with Abe and attended a sumo tournament. The two leaders expressed friendship to show the strength of the US-Japan alliance.
