SENDAI (Kyodo) -- Danish Crown Prince Frederik on Tuesday visited the disaster-hit city of Higashimatsushima in Miyagi Prefecture where he encouraged those affected by the March 11 earthquake and ensuing tsunami.

"My basic impression is how devastating and brutal nature can be, you can see the forces of nature through the tsunami and the earthquake," the crown prince said aboard a sightseeing boat in Matsushima Bay, a popular tourism spot hit by the quake-tsunami disaster.
During his visit to the city, the 43-year-old crown prince joined children in a lunch session and played soccer with them at the tsunami-destroyed Hamaichi Elementary School. He also visited a temporary housing unit and listened to a resident's story about how his car was engulfed by the tsunami.
"I'm very glad that my purpose here is to show that my people of Denmark are concerned and are very aware of the grief and (what) the population here has experienced," the crown prince said.
The crown prince, who is on a four-day visit to Japan through Thursday, donated 22 million yen collected through a Danish firm and a commerce and industry group, as well as around 2,400 pairs of shoes to the city.

"Frederik as a sailor in Japan"
June 17, 2011 by Editor
 Danish Crown Prince Frederik visited the Kansai Yacht Club in Nishinomiya city, Japan on Oct 31st - Nov 3rd, 1997.
The crown prince and Prince Henrik, his stepfather, took part in the Dragon Class Japan National Championship 1997 for three days. Prince Henrik won the regatta on the boat 'Margarita', and Crown Prince was placed 6th on the boat 'Phyloon'.
The Dragon Pacific Interport clubs consisted of the Royal Syney Yacht Squadron (RSYS), the Royal Hongkong Yacht Club (RHKYC), the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club (RVYC) and the Kansai Yacht Club (KYC).  T.M. Frederik and H.R.H. Henrik accompanied with the RHKYC team.

Their Majesties were excellent sailors and also very open-hearted royals. The Kansai Yacht Club and our Japanese Dragon sailors are still proud of the friendly races and the pleasant party with them during their visit.

 Our Japanese people have no ward to express our gratitude to T.M. Frederik as "the first foreign royal figure" to visit the diaster-hit city in Japan this time.
Tusind tak.
