Mr. Trump, who is on a four-day state visit to Japan, was treated to a welcome ceremony full of pomp and pageantry. On a hot, sunny day, he stood at attention alone atop a platform before he walked along a red-carpeted route to review troops. Military bands played and Mr. Trump passed in front of a group of schoolchildren waving U.S. and Japanese flags.

About 50 minutes later, Trump and the first lady returned to the “Beast” limousine and the US president departed for his next meeting: a summit and lunch with his avowed friend Abe.

In the evening, Trump and Melania will be back at the palace for a banquet.

That will mark the lavish high point in a Japan visit laden with feel-good moments aimed at celebrating US-Japanese ties at a time of growing regional uncertainty due to US trade policies, a rising China and nuclear-armed North Korea.
