My husband's company has a Japan branch. They do weekly video conferences, and it took him quite a while to figure out why they were subtly treating him like he was beneath them. He assumed it was just due to being new to the position and having to prove himself as the new guy or something.
He wasn't reciprocating the traditional bow greeting at the start of the meetings, ergo they thought he was a rude, pissant asshat blowing off respectfully acknowledging people.

This WAS an interesting visit, by onlookers' standards.
I think Melania has displayed that she's best at posing in photo's shoots, unlike her awkward husband who had to be told by the Prime Minister how to handle their photo shoot, "Look at me!", lol. Hosting powerful, intellectual a politically outspoken women isn't Melania's forte.
It seemed that Mrs. Abe was more comfortable with being "escorted" by the US Japanese Ambassador
The Prime Minister seemed to be miffed at (so called) President Trump's ineptitude with Asian leaders, and called on the USA to affirm their support of Japan after N Korea's missile "test". Trump acquiesced sheepishly!
