Prince Frederik and Princess Mary of Denmark's Visit to Japan: March 26-28, 2015
 
The Royal Court informs today that Frederik and Mary will pay a official visit in Japan from 26-28th March 2015 to lead a Greenland promotional campaign.

I guess this is the Japan visit there was cancelled due to general elections in Greenland, which has been moved forward to March.

The admins are welcome to move my post to a possible new thread.
