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.
