INDIANAPOLIS Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and first lady Karen Pence are giving gifts from artists and designers with Indiana ties to company and government officials during a nine-day trade mission through Tokyo and other Japanese cities.

Pence says when officials open the gifts, they frequently ask questions. He says it gives him a chance to share Indiana's story.

Pence is presenting people with a framed architectural rendering of Indiana's Statehouse drawn by architect David Barrett McTyre, formerly an architect at Indianapolis-based CSO Architects.

Karen Pence is presenting company and school officials with Fort Wayne-designed Vera Bradley totes and Kokomo Opalescent Glass cardinals. She is also giving third-grade students taking part in the art exchange coal mining hard hats from The Children's Museum of Indianapolis.
