Crown Prince visits exhibition with Danish royals
NHK -- Oct 11
Crown Prince Naruhito of Japan and Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary have visited an exhibition marking 150 years of diplomatic relations between the 2 countries.

They went to the exhibition at the National Archives in Tokyo on Tuesday. The Danish royal couple has been in Japan since Sunday.

About 80 items representing the history of bilateral exchanges are on display. Among them is a paper warrior's helmet that children presented to Crown Prince Frederik when he visited regions affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan.

Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Prince Frederik are the honorary presidents of the series of events marking the anniversary.
