(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.

very heartwarming! It's events like these that leave a huge impact.

Yes, this trip is very much in anticipation of the upcoming free-trade agreement between EU and Japan, which could mean an increase in the Danish export to Japan with up to 50 %.
It's Danish Industry which is behind that figure and they are notoriously conservative in their estimations.

I like Mary's outfit, a very Japanese-inspired style.

Daily Mail, mostly on Mary's kimono-dress and Frederik playing a lot of soccer - and apparently nothing else.

Did Mary forget to curtsy to the Emperor?

F&M have a busy programme! But so so well, with charm and well prepared.


Danish succesful businessman, Christian Stadil, (Hummel) has some very positive things to say after Crown Princess Mary visited him today:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BaHGub1gfeU/

"We had the pleasure of having our great; kind as well as very skillful H.R.H Crown Princess Mary paying our small booth a visit here in Tokyo. If there is anyone that still has doubts about the monarchy - I can just say that they do a hell of a good job for
for Denmark in terms of nation branding and when it comes to the promotion of Danish values and companies.

We have tangibly seen and experienced here in Tokyo that chairmen and CEOs from some of Japans biggest companies being customers of ours, they show up and give us the time of day, and this only because of the presence of The Crown Prince Couple Mary and Frederik.

Moreover, it makes me proud to be a Dane when I see how approachable an unformal our royals are, as compared to here in Japan where the Royals still have somewhat of a god-like status. When we high five The Crown Prince Frederik, or the likes, the Japanese are chocked and envious. Well done!

For those who may wonder, according to BB Crown Princess Masako was waiting inside. So CP Naruhito was not alone.

No doubt! That's the kind of photos you send back to your kids.

Wow! I've enjoyed catching up on all the photos and videos of this seemingly jam packed tour. Frederik and Mary never fail to shine on these sorts of trips. They're always natural and at ease, both with each other and everyone they meet, whether it's the Japanese Crown Prince or a group of school kids.

I was also very happy to see CP Masako greeting them on arrival, and hear of her presence later in the trip, too. She looks well and very pleased to see the Danish CP couple. I hope for Masako, personally, that she's feeling better, and I also hope we get to see her participating more in official life in the future.

Day 5 (and last day)

"The Crown Prince couple had lunch with elementary school students from Funabashi's first class. Before the lunch, the Crown Prince pair had been shown how the school uses LEGO's programming program "We Do".

Here is a BB video of M&F visiting a class of giggling school children. VIDEO: Mary og Frederik lrte japanske brn et helt srligt dansk ord | BILLED-BLADET

Our man in Japan, the Ulrik Ulriksen, informs his spellbound readers that M&F taught the children to say goodbye in Danish, as we can see towards the end of the video.
Weeeell, I think the result was a bit mixed.

And in case you are wondering: Farvel = literally farewell, but best translated to goodbye.

Very cute scenes with the kids. They also seem to have a nice rapport with the Japanese CP couple.
This has been a jam packed visit for both of them, and I've enjoyed following it very much. Thank you to everyone who took the time to post pictures, videos, articles, etc.
