A large assembly of local media greeted a sunglasses-clad Trump, cameras flashing, as she came down the elevator at Narita International Airport.

Ivanka Trump arrived in Japan on Thursday for the annual World Assembly for Women event and looked gorgeous in a sleeveless white top and black skirt. Ivanka will be missing out on the entertainment provided by Abe, who has booked Japanese singer Pikotaro to attend a dinner party in Tokyo on Monday, President Trump's last night in Japan. "And it's very surprising to Japanese women that she can also talk about things that are important to society".

But despite her well-intentioned comments, Ivanka Trump didn't get a positive response from Twitter, as many were quick to point out her father, President Donald Trump's, history of misogyny and treating women poorly.

Ivanka Trump escaped the escalating special counsel investigation that's swirling around the White House and her husband, Jared Kushner, to give a speech in Japan, where she's considered a media darling and beloved by some as the flawless woman.

There she gave a speech on female entrepreneurship and women's participation in the economy.

"Many people think she's like a princess", said Lully Miura, a political scientist at the University of Tokyo, in a statement to the Washington Post.

"She is a handsome female leader", Rena Hayakawa, a 21-year-old college student, told the Times.

Another woman and former U.S. Senate staffer Mieko Nakabayashi, told the site that Ivanka's "kind of celebrity" resonates with the Japanese people. First daughter and presidential adviser Ivanka Trump landed in Japan on Thursday, welcomed by the US ambassador to Japan, William Hagerty, and his wife, Chrissy.

However, it's unclear if Ivanka's father is looked at as favorably.

"All too often, our workplace culture fails to treat women with appropriate respect", Trump said, according to AFP.
