Welcomed to the White House on Monday by First Lady Jill Biden, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kidhida’s wife, Yuko Kishida.
We all wonder what the two wives discussed over luncheon.
On Monday, after the luncheon, Jill Biden and Yuko Kishida planted a cherry tree in a ceremony on the White House Grounds as a symbol of the long friendship between the U.S. and Japan.
This is how you always plant a tree,” Biden said, laughing
As they were both dressed in heels and skirts/dresses.
Jill said when planting the tree, “The planting of this tree is a symbol of the friendship between our two nations forever and ever.”
This was their only public arrangement of the day.
Yuko Kishida arrived with a special gift for Jill, as they both enjoy floral motifs. Yuko had a unique kimono made for her. The kimono is a knee-length light pastel color with embroidered florals at the bottom of the coat.
