Melania Trump visits luxury pearl retailer in Tokyo”

US first lady Melania Trump waves as she and her Japanese counterpart Akie Abe, center, arrive at Mikimoto Ginza Main Store, Japan's pearl jewelry maker, at Ginza shopping district in Tokyo Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017.

About five strokes later, Melania had written the first character for "peace" in Japanese and Akie wrote the second. The first ladies wrote characters that together mean "peace".

Calligraphy of a part of Japanese words "Peace" written by USA first lady Melania Trump is seen during a calligraphy class of the 4th grader at Kyobashi Tsukiji Elementary School in Tokyo, Monday, Nov. 6, 2017. There, Donald Trump reportedly complimented Abe on his choice for his wife. The couple later split up to pursue separate activities-a game of golf for the president and a visit to the glamorous Ginza shopping district for the first lady. She was awarded the protection of the country's first-ever all-women police unit, deployed as part of a trial ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Following their tea, Trump and Abe participated in a "pearl seminar", viewing the different stages of pearl production, learning about the process from two Mikimoto pearl divers. Kokichi Mikimoto was the first person in the world to culture a semi-spherical pearl in 1893 on the island of Ojima, now known as Mikimoto Pearl Island, according to Mikimoto's website.

Melania coordinated her caped, circle-skirt navy Christian Dior dress with Japanese First Lady Akie Abe, who also wore a long-sleeve navy dress and patent leather belt.

On Sunday, the two first ladies heard about the history of cultivated pearls at a jewelry shop in downtown Tokyo and joined their husbands for a private dinner at a Japanese steak house.

President Trump is on an 11-day trip to Asia to improve relations and discuss the nuclear threats from North Korea.
