Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe may have been on a diplomatic mission when he met with his Canadian counterpart, Justin Trudeau, over the weekend – but he still made time to do some shopping.

On Thursday, Abe posted a video to his official Instagram account, showing him installing the new wooden door knocker he picked up during his trip to Canada.

Fittingly, the door knocker is in the shape of one of Canada’s national symbols – the beaver.

The video, set to cheerful instrumental music, shows Abe nailing the door knocker to the side of his lake home. At the end of the clip, his wife Akie is seen laughing as she tries the door knocker for the first time.

Abe’s excitement about the souvenir was apparent in his caption, in which he wrote that he “immediately” installed it after bringing it back from Canada.
