Japan's Princess Mako's Boyfriend arrives from U.S. for wedding

Last edited Mon Sep 27, 2021, 07:02 AM - Edit history (1)

Media calls Kei Komuro "boyfriend." not "fiancé." They were engaged a few years ago but the wedding was called off because his family wasn't good enough for the royal family (or more accurately, the assholes who control the royal family).

He went to New York to study law three years ago. The only way for them to be together was to do a Harry and Meghan escape to the U.S. and now they're doing it. I love this guy, he didn't give up.

He arrived from his flight wearing a suit without a tie and his hair in a ponytail. A huge f-you to the assholes.

1. Roughly 13 hour flight from New York

8 hours from the West Coast.

jet stream headwinds are a factor.

American educated. This means imperial traditons will exert less and less influence over time. The couple will feel freer to exercise Japanese traditions at their own pace.

To rephrase: Imperial Household Agency and family members are going to take a prestige hit. The paparazzi will want to know how much tradition is broken. The paparazzi have their own agenda, same as usual.

3. Princess Mako's boyfriend arrives in Japan from US for marriage

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Kei Komuro, the boyfriend of Princess Mako, returned to Japan on Monday for the first time in about three years from the United States, where he lives, to prepare for their marriage amid a controversy over a financial dispute involving his mother.

Komuro, 29, is expected to hold a press conference together with the niece of Emperor Naruhito after roughly two weeks of coronavirus quarantine and the two plan to register their marriage in October before starting a new life in the United States, where Komuro is working at a law firm, sources familiar with the matter have said.

Her 15-year old brother is third in line to the throne.

4. About the family registry for a passport...when I taught Japanese students in Hawaii in the mid

80's, the best student was part Korean. Because of that, there were certain identity flags that she was subjected to. I was shocked. Does Japan still maintain this Nazi treatment of their citizens with Korean blood?

6. Rumor has it that Korean ancestry was the real problem here.

Ugh. Until all the old conservative men in charge of everything die out ...

5. Run, Mako!

The IHA seems like a total piece of work from the accounts I've read.

When you thought Elizabeth's courtiers were a thing. The IHA doesn't do privileged assholery by halves.
