Prime Minister Shinzo Abe plans to take U.S. President Donald Trump to a familiar place during their expected summit in Japan in November: the golf course.

A round of golf would not only give the leaders a relaxing venue to discuss matters, but it would also display the strong Japan-U.S. ties to the international community, according to several sources familiar with the preparations.

U.S. officials are trying to arrange a visit by Trump to Japan, South Korea and China before he attends the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit scheduled for Nov. 10 and 11 in Vietnam.

Japanese government officials suggested to their U.S counterparts that Trump visit Japan from Nov. 4 to 6, which would include a weekend to squeeze in a golf trip in the summit itinerary.

“It will be in the middle of an extraordinary Diet session, but because it is on a weekend, I think the people would understand,” a Cabinet official said.

However, some government officials are opposed to the golf plan, saying Abe has no time to “take it easy” amid the heightened tensions with North Korea.

During their first official summit held in the United States in February, Trump took Abe to his resort in Florida, where they spent about five hours together on the links playing 27 holes.

For Trump’s expected visit to Japan, which would be his first since becoming president, Abe’s office plans to continue the “golf diplomacy” and is negotiating with professional golfers who would accompany the two on the course.

Abe has been refraining from playing golf, even during his summer vacation in August, to focus on buoying the slumping support rates for his Cabinet and how to deal with North Korea’s ballistic missile launches and nuclear test.

The visit by Trump, an avid golfer, will give Abe an opportunity to lift his self-imposed ban on his favorite leisure activity, the sources said.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga would not comment on the golf plan, saying only at his Sept. 13 news conference, “We agreed during the February summit to have the president in Japan within 2017.”
