As the Democratic Party gears up to officially nominate Hillary Clinton as its candidate in November's U.S. presidential election, Japanese officials are wondering which of the two hopefuls — her or Donald Trump — are more likely to get along, both on a personal and professional level, with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

While people in the government are still trying to size up Trump, a real estate tycoon, they feel more comfortable with Clinton who, as a former secretary of state, is familiar with the complicated dynamics of Japanese politics and Asia as a whole.

Japanese officials are taking a wait-and-see attitude about Trump since they aren't sure how much of the radical remarks he has been making regarding Japan and Asia will actually become his foreign policy.
