PALM BEACH — While President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe left the winter White House at Mar-a-Lago to golf in Jupiter this morning, first lady Melania Trump and the prime minister’s wife Akie Abe visited the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens west of Delray Beach.

The Morikami was donated to Palm Beach County by George Morikami, whose family came to Palm Beach County in the early 20th century with other Japanese farmers to form the Yamato Colony, from which Yamato Road takes its name.
