Additional Details:
President Reagan and Nancy make the first trip to Asia of his presidency, as they visit Japan in a very visual, political trip to display Reagan to Japanese voters as a world statesman, consulted by an ally, Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone who faced election troubles, survived a drubbing, then picked up the pieces to reorganize. Some Reagan lieutenants complained about this trip, but there was a need to demonstrate U. S. solidarity with allies that it can count on. Reagan also hoped to prod for action on the serious trade disputes between the U. S. and Japan, and progress was made on these thorny issues. The Nakasones entertained their famous visitors during lunch at the Prime Minister's country retreat, a cottage 35 miles west of Tokyo, a sort of Oriental Camp David. November 11, 1983.
