Cook and Joz arrived in Japan on Monday to begin a week-long tour of various developer studios, manufacturer facilities, and government entities. These PR tours tend to highlight efforts Apple is promoting at the time, like manufacturing partnerships or social programs.

After visiting Sony on Tuesday, the Apple executives stopped by Konami, a video game developer responsible for some Apple Arcade titles like "Frogger." The tour continued with a classical music concert in Omotesando and a visit with developers in Yokohama.

Tim Cook even met with the Prime Minister of Japan, Fumio Kishida.

"It's incredible to be back in a country that's so near and dear to our hearts at Apple," Tim Cook said in a tweet. "Thank you, @kishida230 (Fumio Kishida), for the warm reception. We're looking forward to continuing to grow and invest across Japan."

Joz has been busy too, who stopped by the musical group Wonk's studio. They showed Joz how they use a MacBook Pro and Logic Pro to create their music.
