After the meeting, the two leaders will head to Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. Some critics have called it "golf diplomacy," and at a press conference on Tuesday, Seiji Mataichi, the head of Japan's Social Democratic Party, called the meeting an embarrassing attempt to curry favor with the Trump administration.

BuzzFeed News hit the streets of Tokyo to find out what the average person in Japan hopes Abe will tell Trump.
