Abe, Trump relax ahead of talks

US President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe spent Sunday unwinding -- before they get down to business in Tokyo.

In the morning, Abe and Trump hit the green at a golf course near Tokyo. It was the fifth time they have teed off together.



Meanwhile, Akie Abe and Melania Trump took in an exhibition of digital art in Tokyo where they were welcomed by school children.

In the evening, Abe and Trump were joined by their spouses on the final day of the May Grand Sumo Tournament. It's the first time a US President has attended a Grand Sumo event.

Trump presented the first "United States President's Cup" to the winner, Asanoyama.

Afterwards, they had dinner at a Japanese restaurant that serves food cooked on a charcoal grill.

Trump said, "The Prime Minister and I talked a lot today about trade and military and various other things. I think we've had a very productive day. And tomorrow likewise will be a very productive day."

Abe said, "The president is a tough golfer and a tough dealmaker. I want to discuss a wide range of topics with him in the relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant."

The dinner lasted for a little over an hour.

Japan's foreign ministry says the two leaders discussed a range of topics relating to Japan-US relations as well as sumo and golf.
