Emperor, empress treat Trumps with French dinner, live orchestra

Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako held a banquet for U.S. President Donald Trump and his wife Melania at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo on Monday, entertaining them with a full-course French dinner and live orchestra music.
The banquet was part of the program prepared for the Trumps -- the first state guests to visit Japan since the emperor's enthronement on May 1 -- who a day before watched a grand sumo tournament and had dinner at a Japanese charcoal grill restaurant with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie.
For the imperial couple, it was their first hosting of any banquet since they became emperor and empress. A total of 165 guests attended, including the Abes, Crown Prince Fumihito and Crown Princess Kiko.
