The Crown Prince and Princess of Denmark have completed their three-day visit to Japan, attending a Greenlandic fashion show and meeting with the Japanese Imperial Couple.

The day began with a visit to the Mode Gakuen fashion and design school, where the couple met with students who work sealskin into their designs. Mode Gakuen has worked with the companies Great Greenland and Kopenhagen Fur to introduce sealskin to Japanese designers. It was then on to a fashion show featuring Jesper Høvring designs at the Tokyu Honten department store in Shibuya.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary then were guests at a lunch hosted by Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko at the Imperial Palace. View a video of their arrival for the luncheon here.

The afternoon saw the couple visit an entrant into the Spiritual Greenland exhibition,  a five-meter high igloo designed by Professor Toshihiko Susuzki of the Kogakuin University, an architect. Frederik and Mary walked around inside the construction site’s plastic structure and were told of the design plan.

In the evening, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary had dinner with Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako at their residence, Akasaka Palace.

Yesterday, the couple took a sail on Tokyo Bay where they were shown the preparations for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Frederik and Mary also attended the opening of the Spiritual Greenland exhibition accompanied by Princess Takamado and Princess Tsuguko of Takamado which features pieces from the private collections of Princess Takamado and Prince Henrik.
