On itself we do not need to feel sorry for Princess Noriko, now Mrs Senge. The Japanese Government has given the Princess a dowry of around 650.000 Euro (appr. 850,000 US Dollar).

The costs for the wedding ceremony were also met by the Imperial Household Agency...

[my bolding]

The dowry is rather modest. Japan is an expensive country. I am not sure what $850,000 can buy. It is nice that the IHA paid for the wedding though.

I am looking forward to seeing photos from the wedding reception.

I remember when Princess Sayako was married, there was much concern for her because her change in status made people think she was banished from her former life, never to see her family again and never to set foot inside the palace etc. Of-course it is not the case at all, one simply has to remember that the Imperial protocols means one cannot just turn up for a cuppa and a natter whenever one likes.

Sayako and Noriko would not have embarked on marriage unless they were happy to do so and they wanted to keep their status.

650,000 euros is a very generous gesture. I am not sure where Noriko and her new husband will now live, but they could buy a house with it, or buy some nice furniture.

The above link contains photos of the wedding reception in Hotel New Otani in Tokyo. Prime Minister Abe and the Crown Princely couple were in attendance.

Mr Senge is said to come from an aristocratic family. His family had the title of marquise before the adoption of the Constitution of 1946. https://nikolaevec.livejournal.com/553766.html The title is informally acknowledged in the upper circles.

On a different note, I couldn't help noticing Mrs Senge's truly regal posture.

Why she shouldn't attend? She is a member of the family.

All the best to the newly married couple!

Ms Senge? Or you mean Mrs Senge?

Thank you for the videos...what a lovely family affair. How regal Noriko is, how confident and calm she appears to be of her future. Indeed the whole royal family and guests exude a certain restraint and dignity that is very unique, I think.

Lovely to see CP Masako attending, she seems to be getting stronger and happier as time goes by.

Makes me a little sad that the Imperial princesses have to chose between their titles and marriage. They should really amend the constitution so that the Princess at least has the option of remaining in the Imperial Family and starting a new branch, especially if she marries into the old aristocracy.
