Ivanka will attend the World Assembly for Women, an global conference for empowerment of women and related issues, on November 3.

In her remarks, Trump noted "significant improvement" for women in Japan in recent decades, and attributed some of that success to Abe's economic policies. Abe has pledged $50 million to the cause, and said he hopes to create "a society where women can shine".

Sometimes glancing at Abe sitting behind her on the stage, Trump praised the prime minister's efforts to promote women's participation in the workforce.

For the first time ever, Tokyo's Metropolitan Police Department formed a female-only security team to protect female dignitaries, and the squad's first task is to guard Donald Trump's daughter and presidential adviser Ivanka as well as his wife Melania. However, tens of thousands of children are still on waiting lists to get into publicly certified nursery schools.

"This is my first visit to Japan, and the warmth you have shown us, the beauty of your landscape, and the vibrancy of your culture are truly incredible gifts to all who come to this country", she said.
