Visiting Japanese Crown Prince Naruhito on Saturday visited a maritime museum near Copenhagen after inspecting a school for Japanese in the Danish capital.

The Crown Prince, who studies waterborne transport, viewed displays zealously, such as compasses and charts. Denmark is known for its maritime industry.

He went on to visit Kronborg Castle, where William Shakespeare's "Hamlet" is set.

Speaking to reporters, the Crown Prince expressed hope that Japan and Denmark will deepen their mutual understanding further through events related to the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the two countries' diplomatic relations.
