Expressen has a video of Victoria meeting robot Pepper.
Victoria met the inventor of the robot and asked:
- How long you have worked ... with him or what does one say?
But Pepper interrupted the discussion and said:
- I'm sorry but I'm not smart enough to answer to your question. I'm going to study hard to be able to answer to your question on the next time.
Victoria started to laugh.
- Ok, I'll get back to you, she laughed and said
- That was good. Thank you so much!
After the meeting Victoria had a "fika" with the winners of the Embassy's competition.
- A real swedish fika, this will be good, Victoria said.
Early in the morning she visited among other things Tsukiji fish market.
- It feels nice and important to be here. These are important issues, Victoria said before she went to the fish market.

Victoria about her dinner with princess Takamado
You look so beautiful!, Victoria said when she was received by the princess.
Restaurant Tofuya, as the name suggests, is famous for its good tofu and the dishes were of course served at Victoria's visit.
- The food was delicious! I have eaten tofu before, but never in so many different forms, she said after dinner.

The court about the third day:
During the Thursday morning, the Crown Princess visited the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo, the largest fish and shellfish retail market in the world.
The morning continued at Sweden's Embassy. There the Crown Princess met the winners of the video competition organized by the Swedish Embassy. The competition was primarily for young people and teachers and the subject was the UN's Global Sustainable Development Goal No. 14. Even the human robot, Pepper, attended the meeting at the embassy.
After lunch, the Crown Princess visited Hama Rikyu Gardens, a traditional Japanese garden and public park, surrounded by a moat filled with sea water from the Gulf of Tokyo.
In the afternoon, the Crown Princess attended at the Swedish Embassy's seminar Doing Sustainable Business the Swedish Way. Swedish companies told about how they work with CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) and then followed a panel discussion between Swedish and Japanese companies.
The day ended with a reception at the Swedish residence for seminar participants and representatives of Swedish business in Japan.

Victoria gave an interview to Expressen's reporter Elias Giertz, who together with Expressen's photographer Sven Lindwall are in Tokyo following the visit.

Victoria's environmental appeal: "It is our duty"
Marine and fisheries issues, those are questions close to Crown Princess Victoria's heart.
For most, it doesn't make it the most engaging topic, but when Victoria speaks, it's hard not to feel anything but commitment.
- I am worried. The more you learn, the more worried you become. I have the privilege of meeting many knowledgeable people and listening to what we actually know about what's happening to our nature and our ocean - I can't be anything but engaged, she says.
The commitment is in the form of a fishing agreement, Victoria was one of the key people in the processs of developing it. In November she was on the Maldives where the world's eight largest fish companies met to talk about how to work more sustainable. The conversations lead into something unique: Eight of the world's fishing giants signed a statement to take on leadership in sustainability issues. Among other things, by reducing antibiotic use in fish farms and reducing CO2 emissions in general.
- It is a big challenge to get these companies to feel committed and that they can influence. This is like a follow-up meeting after the Maldives, to keep the players warm. They will feel that they get support and that they can convince others in their businesses that this is important. Then we have another meeting in Stockholm where they are invited.
On Tuesday Victoria got happy news. Quite unexpectedly, another fishing company signed for the statement. You can see Victoria's joy about this.
- I'm extremely happy. It's all about everyone's need. Every new player who writes implies a strength and an opportunity for positive change. We don't only need these fishing companies but all the players who can move in the right direction. But it was great fun that they wrote on, really.
How can you as a private individual in a small way to influence companies for a sustainability boost?
- We consumers have a huge responsibility. You can take it to yourself, to your family, your area of ​​residence, school or workplace. We need all the helper. But unfortunately, it is quite complicated to make sustainable choices as consumers. But it doesn't have to be it. I'm trying to talk to make it easy to do the right thing. You shouldn't have to doctorate in the field to make the right choice. There are easy ways to do the right thing.
Now I'm curious, like what?
- Ask questions! Whether in the fish counter, at the restaurant or when shopping for clothes, ask questions. Someone asking the question and wanting to know puts pressure on companies to think about sustainability. It is our right as consumers - but it is also our duty, in fact, says Victoria
The trip is a study trip with a focus on sea and fishing issues. But why Japan for a Swedish princess who cares of the Baltic Sea?
- If we get Japanese companies, which are leading ones, to change their approach it could mean a huge change for the major fish stocks in the world. Japanese fishing companies are very big. We hope that they will improve, but then we must make them dare to take that step.
Cool.
- It can be, say a determined - but hopeful - Crown Princess.

The last day of the visit has begun. From the Twitter of ambassador Magnus Robach
"3 species in JPN have MSC certification. Princess Victoria visits a certified site in Myagi for skipjack tuna."
https://twitter.com/MagnusRobach/sta...88217678905344

In Shiogama City Victoria visited Meiho Tuna Fishery and Shinto Shrine.

Swedish Crown Princess Victoria visits @MSCecolabel cert Meiho fishery.
https://twitter.com/MSCecolabel/stat...88112868044801

Crown Princess Victoria visited company Meiho's Fish Factory in Sendai, about two hours away from Tokyo. Meiho is one of Japan's leading fish producers and has worked extensively with the MCR Eco-label in its production and is MCR-certified.
Crown Princess Victoria was given a chance to ask questions about the work and she was interested in how they feel that one can convince more Swedish companies to work with MCR and sustainability.
After a conversation with management, the Crown Princess visited the fish factory in the company's premises.
Inside the factory, Victoria watched the different steps in the work with the fish. Among other things, the fish was sewed and cut, something Victoria observed carefully.
During the tour it was loud, cold and hot when Victoria chopped between freezing rooms at a temperature of minus 50 degrees and a warming room with a significantly higher temperature. But she took it easy - and used the tour as a chance to learn more about the Japanese fishing company's work on sustainability.

Crown princess Victoria met crown prince Naruhito, a banquet was held at the Togu Palace.
Belga Image

Victoria gave an interview also to Svensk Damtidning's Ellen Myrgård Lindén, who has also followed the visit in Japan.
Victoria has repeatedly told how the royal couple used to come home from their travels and tell them about everything they experienced. Victoria makes now the same to her own children, and in one way it becomes an introduction to the role of Sweden's representative.
- I think my parents did it very well and pedagogically. They talked on their visits and also talked about the importance of bringing up Sweden, Swedish values, Swedish research and technology. In this way, it becomes a natural approach to what the role as such means, but also what it is possible to assist with.
Five-year-old Estelle is already aware that the work of the Crown Princess is important. Victoria is one of the most important voices in raising questions about the development of the Baltic Sea, and in a speech at UN University, the Crown Princess told us that the commitment comes from her living all her life close to the Baltic Sea, which is now one of the world's most polluted seas.
- Estelle knows I'm here talking about fish, and then we talk about Japan, fishing issues, nature and ecology, and how things are all together. She's five years old, but she's not too young. On the contrary, she is very interested and receptive. I think we have an obligation as parents and adults to stimulate that curiosity.
The Crown Princess was appointed in January 2016 to one of the UN's 16 ambassadors for the global sustainable development goals in Agenda 2030. During her visit she stated that it was an offer she could not refuse.
- We are a small part in a large context, but we can unfortunately influence a little too much in our environment and then we have to take that responsibility.

The royal court has updated to their article photos and videos of Victoria's trip.
About the last day they tell: On Friday morning, the Crown Princess went to Shiogama, in northeastern Japan, to visit Meiho Tuna Fishery. Shiogama is one of Japan's most important fishing villages and a large part of the tuna fished off the east coast of the country comes ashore here. Meiho Tuna Fishery is the first fishing company in the Tohoku region, which has become the MSC Certified (Marine Stewardship Council). During the visit, the Crown Princess learned about the company's work on sustainable fishing.
Tohoku region was hit by earthquake and tsunami 2011.
The Crown Princess rounded the day in Shiogama by visiting a Shinto Shrine. Shinto is a native Japanese religion and the name means "The Way of the Gods".

Expressen's royal reporter Elias Giertz (who btw. is only 21 years old) writes about Victoria's trip: her interview, her agenda and meetings with Victoria. He and photographer Sven Lindwall followed Victoria on her visit. There is a video at the article

The Crown Princess: "I've Got a Great Man"
15.35 Monday: Kastrup Airport, Copenhagen. "Ladies, gentlemen, Your Royal Highness". The captain aboard the flight, which in 10 minutes takes us to Narita International Airport, welcomes passengers, and perhaps especially one of them.
Victoria visited Japan for the first time in 2001. Only 24 years old, she made her first official visit on her own in Tokyo.
What has happened to the Crown Princess and Japan since then?
- On the personal level, it has happened very much. I have got a great man who is very kind, and a nice family. And in Japan, it has happened a lot, said Victoria.
18.30 Tuesday: Swedish Embassy. Victoria speaks at a dinner for several powerful CEOs for fishing companies in Japan. She has a small pine with her.
- This little pine needs to grow for about 80 to 90 years before it's ready to fall. So to plant it is nothing you do for yourself, but for your children and grandchildren.
10.30 Wednesday: Tokyo. A visit to Aeon's store. It is one of Japan's leading retailers and operates food and department store and pharmacy. While waiting for Victoria, journalists are told that the Crown Princess will not come in time. She wants to look at chopsticks, we are told. Immediately, the journalists run four stairs up, place themselves at a cavalade of chopsticks, waiting for Victoria. She arrives, sees familiar faces with the journalists and breaks out:
- Have you also found here?
How does the crown princess and family think to live sustainably?
- It's not easy. Even if you can ask questions and try to make wise choices, it's hard.
What questions you should ask?
- About origin, how things have been produced and if there are better alternatives than what you would have chosen. You should try to read. But that should be easier.
When Victoria is at a seminar at UN University, I and photographer Sven Lindwall go to a fast-food venue next door and take us a bag to the university.
- But, are you here?, we hear a familiar female voice. It's Victoria who had been in the toilet next to us. Sven Lindwall shows a little embarrassed a bag of fast food.
- One knows it from the aroma, says Victoria, looks at me: - But haven't you got anything?
My food is in Lindwall's bag and when Victoria is sure of that, she goes for lunch with the speakers.
- See you later, she says happily.
To meet a royal directly after a toilet visit is hardly something you do everyday. But Victoria manages the situation with calm and chats friendly - something I can't think that someone else in her family would do.
06.55 Thursday: Tsukiji Fish Market. It is cold in the morning when Victoria comes out of the car. She walks straight to us journalists.
- How has it been for you? Will you make it out?
The question surprised everyone. There is some annoyance that only two photographers out of five may come in when Victoria visits the seafood market. Victoria cares for that everyone should come in and tries to even convince the organizers about that. But despite her efforts, some of us have to kindly wait outside.
13:00 Thursday: Hamariyku Garden. Victoria walks in the garden and chats with me and Sven Lindwall. When she stands up for a photo, she looks at photographer Sven and says: - You are not really satisfied. Sven explains that he loves watching the crown princess move more at the photo.
- Only for you, she answers with a smile.
One of my colleagues gets an interview with Victoria. She has her child on the trip whom I promise to look after. When the crown princess sees me with the stroller, she bends down on her knees in front of the stroller.
- He is so cute! Now I miss them at home, says Victoria.
13.45 Friday: Temple. Shiogama. The visit begins to end, soon Victoria goes for a dinner with Crown Prince Naruhito. She summarizes the trip.
- It has been good. It has been a program that gave insight into much. It's been fun to get along with this.
She told previously, why she is so passionate about sea and fishing issues. And the commitment is really noticed.
Next day she flies home again, to the family waiting at Haga Palace.
- Daniel has actually never been in Japan. I hope we can experience it together sometime, says Victoria, smiling under the cherry tree.

Victoria's Tribute of Love to Daniel: "I've got a great man"
16 years together and the passion is strong. "I've got a great man," the Crown Princess beams.
Crown Princess Victoria has been visiting Japan and a big press followed every step she took. Victoria is a genuinely warm person who cares about everyone. She is incredibly easy to like.
- I have got a great man who is very kind, and a nice family.
She has fully grown into the role of future regent of Sweden. A role she manages galantly. During the visit, Victoria held speechs for several powerful CEOs in the fishing industry, and her voice was always strong and calm.

Svensk Damtidning has at this week's issue reporter Ellen Myrgård Lindén's article about Victoria's trip to Japan.
Victoria gave an interview to Lindén during the trip.
The crown princess was in Japan on her first official trip alone in 2001. How does it feel to come back?
- Great fun! There is a different focus on this trip than it was previously. Then it was much about promoting Sweden, in every possible aspect. This trip focuses on issues with fish and sustainability.
If one thinks the crown princess herself. How have you evolved as a person and in your royal task?
- Generally, it is really fun to have the opportunity to represent Sweden. I am extremely proud to show Sweden and nothing has changed in that. I continue to wonder all that we actually have to offer and that people are interested in Sweden. Here in Japan we have a good collaboration with researchers and talented people who can "hook arm with" to achieve a better level of development, in this case in fishery. It is about something bigger - the supply of people. What shall we eat in the future?
How does the crown princess talk about her trips and work with princess Estelle?
- Estelle knows that I am here and talk about fish and then we talk about Japan, fish issues, nature and ecology and how the things are connected. She is five years old but she is not too young. On the contrary, she is very interested and receptive.
The crown princess started to engage herself with sustainable seas very early. Can you tell a little about it?
- I guess it is that I have been curious like most children and that I have had parents who explained everything in an interesting way. With that, I have gradually understood that the situation is very bad for the Baltic Sea, which we think is good, because it looks so on the surface. But then, when you look a little closer, you understand that it's really bad. And I have come into contact with knowledgeable people.
