Japanese authorities are ramping up security in Tokyo ahead of Trump’s first visit to Japan since his inauguration.

Public trash cans in populated areas such as busy train stations will be temporarily removed for the trip, between November 5 and 7.

Coin operated lockers will also be closed to the public for Trump’s three-day trip.

Security measures are being tightened across the capital, including the regions of Marunouchi, Otemachi, Yurakucho, Aoyama and Akasaka in Chiyoda and Minato.

Around 21,000 officers – 18,000 from the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department and 3,000 from Saitama – are to patrol the city through the trip.

The force is the largest to ever be deployed for a US presidential visit to the capital.

Trump’s trip to Japan comes just days after a suspected terrorist brought carnage to New York, killing eight in a truck rampage.

Relative to other countries, the threat of terrorism is deem to be low in Japan, which is widely regarded as a safe place to live.

But the UK Foreign Office warns that “attacks can’t be ruled out” on its website.

Japan says the biggest threat to its security is North Korea, a nation Trump has vowed to “totally destroy” if forced to do so.

In 1998, the US Department of State added North Korea to its list of “state sponsors of terrorism”.

It came after North Korean agents hid a bomb on a South Korean airliner, killing all 115 on board.
