It may just be because she's royal. I don't think married women in Japan are forced to give up their jobs, although there does seem to be cultural pressure for them to do so - at least, there used to be several years ago, but I'm not sure how things are now.

Japan mulls bringing back former royals to avert heir crisis: report(AFP)
1 July 2005

TOKYO - Japan is to consider reinstating former royals who left the imperial household in 1947 to avert a looming crisis in the monarchy caused by the lack of a male heir, a report said on Friday.

Maintaining male-only succession and bringing back some of the surviving royals or their offspring was among several options being considered by a government panel dealing with the issue, the Yomiuri Shimbun said.

Imperial household law allows only men to ascend the Chrysanthemum Throne, but no boy has been born to the world痴 oldest monarchy since Prince Akishino in 1965, threatening the line with extinction.

The government panel of 10 members from academic, legal, business and administrative circles has been reviewing the issue since January and will report to Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi later this year.

A government official was unable to confirm the report.

The panel is 妬n the midst of debate and cannot say what it will do or will not do at the moment,・she said.

Japan imperial household shrank under the occupation by US forces after World War II, with emperor Hirohito, once considered a living god, renouncing his divine status.

The families of Hirohito three brothers stayed in the royal household, but 51 people from 11 other families lost their imperial titles and became commoners in 1947 to cut government expenses.

The lack of a male heir has led some traditionalists to argue Japan should consider allowing the royal family to adopt a male to avert the crisis.

Opinion polls have shown that a majority of the public support allowing female succession. There were several empresses who ruled the country. The last, Go-Sakuramachi, abdicated in 1771.

The current Emperor Akihito eldest son, Crown Prince Naruhito, 45, and his wife Crown Princess Masako, 41, have a daughter Crown Princess Aiko who is three.

Naruhito younger and only brother Prince Akishino and his 38-year-old wife Princess Kiko have two daughters.

Emperor, empress to attend daughter's wedding

(Kyodo) _ Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko will attend their daughter's wedding reception in November, the Imperial Household Agency announced Monday.

The wedding ceremony for Princess Sayako, 36, and a Tokyo metropolitan government employee, Yoshiki Kuroda, 40, will be held in Shinto rites on the morning of Nov. 15. About 150 people, including the imperial couple and other royal family members, will attend the wedding reception in the afternoon.

Noriyuki Kazaoka, vice-grand steward of the Imperial Household, said the ceremony to officially announce the wedding date, known as "Kokki-no-Gi," will be held on Oct. 5. He also said Princess Sayako, affectionately known as Princess Nori, will visit the imperial sanctuary and see her parents express her gratitude before the marriage on Nov. 12.

Japan's emperor to attend vows

July 04, 2005

JAPANESE Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko will attend their daughter's wedding reception in November, the palace said today, in a break with tradition in which women's marriages were given less weight.

Princess Sayako, the 36-year-old only daughter of the imperial couple, will marry 40-year-old urban planner Yoshiki Kuroda in a Shinto-style ceremony at the historic Imperial Hotel in central Tokyo on November 15.

"The Emperor and Empress, other royal members, relatives and people who had taken care of the two or are close to them will attend the reception afterward," a palace spokeswoman said. The guests will number about 150.

Under the customs of the world's longest-running royal line, the daughter of the emperor becomes a commoner upon her marriage.

In the last such wedding, Akihito's father, late emperor Hirohito, did not attend the reception when his fifth and youngest child Takako married in 1960.

The Imperial Household Agency was unable to say if Sayako's wedding would mark the first time an emperor had been to his daughter's nuptials.

The Japanese government has opened discussion on whether to amend imperial law to let a female ascend the Chrysanthemum Throne.

The male-only succession law has put pressure on Crown Princess Masako, a former career woman, to produce a male heir. Masako, whose only child is a daughter, is rarely seen in public as she struggles to adjust to palace life. Sayako's wedding has also been seen as a sign of change in the role of women. The 36-year-old had said she would think about marriage "in my own way at my own speed" amid a national trend of settling down late.
