Thanks for these photos, mandyy !

This is quite unexpected from the newlyweds to make public / media appearance, but i'm glad they did. the people would not want their 'princess' to dissapear, right?
only i had hoped they would show affection more, just simple things, like holding hands, etc. they seem like sweet couple and i hope for happy marriage!

I add couple more from polfoto :
Polfoto 23-11-2005 Newly wed couple, Mr. Yoshiki Kuroda, left, and Mrs. Sayako Kuroda who is a former princess Sayako, only daughter of Emperor and Empress, visit Shinjuku Gyoen, Tokyo on Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2005.

from hello : http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty/2005/11/23/sayako/



Strolling among the roses in a central Tokyo park, Sayako and Yoshiki Kuroda look like any Japanese newlyweds enjoying the early days of their marriage. But for the former princess life could not be further removed from the cloistered world she knew up until her wedding a week ago...
