Before the leaders and their wives sat down for dinner at a hibachi restaurant, Trump told reporters that he always wanted to see sumo wrestling and that it was an "incredible evening."

Trump also said he hopes the "President's Cup" that he presented to the tournament's winner will be around "for many hundreds of years."

Abe said he believes the presentation was an "unforgettable moment" for the champion wrestler.

Trump also said the leaders had a productive day discussing trade, the military and other topics during their time together.
