US First Lady Practices Japanese Calligraphy in Tokyo School

TOKYO – The United States First Lady Melania Trump visited on Monday a school in southeastern Tokyo, where she tried her hand at Shodo, the art of Japanese calligraphy.

The first lady – accompanied by Akie Abe, wife of Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe – paid a visit to the Kyobashi Tsukiji Elementary School, where they were received in the gym by some 300 students and teachers, Japanese broadcaster NHK reported.

Melania Trump personally greeted several students, took photos with them and attended a Shodo class.

After visiting the school, Melania Trump and Akie Abe had lunch at Akasaka Palace.

The visit is part of the cultural program of the US first lady, who also visited a pearl store on Sunday in the upmarket Tokyo neighborhood of Ginza, where she was shown the process used to obtain them.

Japan is the first stop of the Asian tour undertaken by the US President Donald Trump and the first lady, and also includes trips to South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines between Nov. 5-14.
