Here is an interesting article about one of the Danish businesses accompanying M&F on the trip, and what their presence means to the business.
Familievirksomhed får kronprinsepar som rejseselskab i Japan - TV 2

It's a family run business specializing in high quality fish product to the Japanese market. The Japanese are very particular about quality and they can't get this particular product at the same quality in Japan.

The export and marketing manager, Christian Espersen, who travels to Japan six times a year, explains: "The jubilee (150 years for the first diplomatic relations between DK and Japan) is a good opportunity for us to meet with our most important client out there, whom I'm inviting for the opening at the Danish embassy and for the gala dinner".

The company has been exporting to Japan for 40 years.

Q: What does it mean for the company that the CP-Couple comes along?
Christian Espersen: "It's significant that I can invite our biggest client to the gala dinner where the royal family is represented. That's the first time he experience that".

He goes on to explain the various rules of conduct when you go to Japan. Like never raising your voice during a meeting. And strict adherence to ritual of presenting and receiving a calling card.

------------------------------
It's good that the Japanese CP-Couple are personal friends with M&F. - In fact they are personal friends with most of the European Current CP-couples and reigning couples of their generation. Perhaps especially King W-A and Queen Maxima.

----------------

This visit is going to be very well featured in the national business papers like Jyllands Posten and Berlingske.

A new lovely video from today's walkathon event:



It's a pleasure to watch Frederik and Mary on these trips especially ... They can barely keep their eyes and hands from each other Despite all these people and turmoil around them. A great team.

BTW, BB mentions that it's today exactly 14 years ago that Frederik presented his Mary Donaldson to all of Denmark.

What a wonderful start to their official visit.
A nice surprise to see the Japanese Crown prince couple, as that was not listed in the progrsm, and to see them greet so warmly.

And a BB video: VIDEO: Mary og Frederik nyder hinanden i Japan | BILLED-BLADET

In the beginning the omnipresent Ulrik Ulriksen remarks that they started their visit to Japan on their engagement day, how was that celebrated?
Frederik responds that they were on the job, and that's fine.

The next couple of minutes is a review of todays events.
then we return to our reporter.
UU asks how it is to be on the job together abroad.
M: "It's always a great pleasure".
F: "It's great to be two and share both delights and challenges. That's what's good about this. But of course the best part is being together".
M: "And then we get to see each other a lot. So that's nice".

Some of the people Frederik met is an elderly couple, whose house was destroyed after the tsunami.
That was shortly after the tsunami, while the couple still lived in a communal shelter.
Now, several years later, the entire neighborhood has been resettled in a brand new neighborhood - in new houses, complete with roughly the same neighbors. (The sense of community is strong in Japan, so relocating entire neighborhoods as a bulk, is considered much more important than in most other countries. It's important for the individual harmony of people as well as the neighborhood as a whole).
The husband has admitted to having psychological problems after the tsunami - no wonder!
Frederik recognized them at once, when he saw them and became a warm reunion.

Each year, Frederik symbolically receive a bag of locally grown rice as a token of the appreciation people feel towards his visit and for him keeping in tough, because Frederik has over time followed the rebuilding and resettling process.
So Frederik has a following who can only be compared to Greenland - and certain parts of California - in regards to their personal devotion towards him.
