This is my first post- I've been lurking for almost a year and a half!

Lady Jennifer, I was wondering that, too. I read about the issues concerning her cash benefit once she leaves the family but I don't know what she gets beyond that. Do the empereror and empress have private assets that they control?

I hope Sayako adjusts well to life as a commoner. If her access to the royal family will be as restricted as I've read about (in this forum and in the news media), will she learn about events that affect the imperial family before or with the rest of the public?

I dont know very well about the impreial family finances but I know that Princess Sayako can get the emperor's inheritance (She has a just legal right), and after Princess gets married, the Emperor can substantially(all) help to her.

Thanks for the reply kei893265. The way they make it sound in the newspaper(s) is that she will never see her family again...basically a persona non grata (sp?). I mean I know she is no longer a member of the Imperial Family, but it almost sounds like she will have no contact with anyone in her family (from the way the articles are written)...I know parents normally don't turn away from their kids so it is very rare. I'm sure her family & even his family will help her along the way....does she have any relatives on her mother's side of the family that she could learn from (the commoner way of life)?

:) Her mother Empress Michiko has one older and one younger brother and one younger sister.
The Family name of Empres Michiko before her marriage was (Shoda).
May be their can help Princess Sayako living as a commoner.
H.M.Empress Michiko has contact with her family after her marriage.But not so much,in a wedding ceremony in her Family (Shoda) she was attended and others ceremony.
In coronation of Emperor Akihito Nov.1990 is the two sister of Emperor was attended.

In her wedding day Nov.15 is her parents H.M Emperor Akihito and H.M Empress Michiko attended at the ceremony
wedding in the Palace and reception at the Imperial Hotel.("In the past") the Emperor and Empress never attended at the reception if their daugthers marriage, their will be ignore.

H.M.Emperor Akihito breaks wedding tradition of the Palace to be attended his daugther marriage.

I hope that Princess Sayako gets more contact with her Family in the future.

Hello, Lady Jennifer. please don't worry.
As far as I know, there is not a princess who did not contact with her parents after marriage. And she is very friendly with her family, especially her mother. so I think that she will certainly meet her family.
The emperor's sister too met her parents many times. But that is seldom reported, because maybe it is private news. And even when there is the emperor with his family, Japanese media don't often tell about them. The persons who don't know them think that it probably turns out that it is only just friends. The newspapers which wrote the articles may be misunderstanding from those situations.
She has good understanding persons and supporters with the same life as her - was born as a princess and became the new commoner after marriage - She met those persons (her aunt on father's side) again and again in order to learn about the commoner way.
I believe that many people help her new life. thanks.

hello ropura, thanks for good information! (I'm poor at English..)
you very have H.M.Empress Michiko's detailed knowledge.

Sayako's happiness ahead of wedding

28 OCTOBER 2005
With weeks to go before the wedding of Japan's Princess Sayako, the country's royal family have been stepping out in style for their annual autumn garden party. There was no mistaking the happiness surrounding the event as the ladies of the royal household were also sporting cheerful smiles along with their elegant kimonos.

Thirty-five-year-old Sayako, who is set to marry on November 15, looked the picture of contentment as she followed her parents, Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko, out into the lush gardens of Tokyo's Imperial Palace.

A book is going to be released by the Imperial Household Agency in the beginning of November featuring Princess Sayako. This book includes photos of her with her past birthday interviews and her waka poems.

hi, ropura. Excuse me, but I cannot compare simply two princesses' case about the contact with their parents! princess Sayako's parents are the Emperor and the Empresses. but princess Masako's parents are the commoner. I cannot compare them! so, two princesses are different princesses with a different Japanese title.
