On November 2nd, Mako visited the Akishino residence for the first time since her marriage. She reportedly was organizing her luggage and stayed for about 7 hours, leaving by taxi around 4:30pm. She was described as "sloppy from beginning to end."

On the evening of October 29th, Mako and Kei visited her maternal grandfather Tatsuhiko Kawashima (81) at the hospital.

Sayako Kuroda’s first "homecoming" was 3 weeks after marriage although she and her husband Yoshiki visited her parents the day after the wedding as a thank-you and they attended a tea party celebration at the Imperial Palace.

Nikkansports is gentler. Nothing about sloppiness, it adds as ordinary citizens after marriage, former female royals are "free to go [to parents'] home."

Was that from perhaps a pap using a Canon 5200mm f/14 Tele-Monster to snoop on Mako as she packed up her things?
Or, heaven forbid, a maid who was assisting Mako?

What a description to make about her. No wonder Mako encouraged Kei to set up an overseas base from them so they can leave Japan for the US.

It was probably an official from the Japanese Imperial Household reporting. They’d been on a Time and Motion Study.

Mako isn't a second or any kind of spare under current rules, not even in an emergency. Even if Kei was a "perfect on paper" IHA approved husband she'd still be an ex princess and learning a new way of life in private as her aunt and cousins have done.

The remark was definitely uncalled for though, especially if she was going there will the intention of packing and moving the rest of her stuff. Who hasn't looked "sloppy" in those circumstances? Or dressed in old clothes?

Man arrested after trying to enter complex where mom of ex-Princess Mako's husband lives - The Mainichi
Quote:
A man has been arrested for allegedly intruding on the premises of a local apartment complex where Kei Komuro's mother lives [...]

Police arrested the man, who claims to be a part-time postal worker, on suspicion of intrusion into a structure without permission.

According to the prefectural police, the man apparently approached a resident on the housing complex premises on Nov. 3 and said, "Please let me interview you." The resident became suspicious and called police, and an officer apprehended the man as he was about to leave.

That poor woman. Kei must be beside himself - he seems to be extremely protective of his mother. I hope he has the ability to bring his mother to the US too

Former princess Mako, husband to travel to U.S. Nov. 14: source - Kyodo News
Quote:
Former princess Mako Komuro and her husband are planning to leave Japan for New York on Sunday, a source familiar with the matter said Friday.

The newlywed couple, both 30, are scheduled to depart from Haneda airport in Tokyo [...]

The Komuros have already secured a place to live in the U.S. city, according to the source.

It was originally planned that Komuro would travel to the United States first due to work commitments and the former princess, who left the imperial family upon marrying a commoner, would join him later after obtaining a passport.

But the husband's stay in Japan was prolonged after former princess Mako's grandfather and Crown Princess Kiko's father, Tatsuhiko Kawashima, a professor emeritus at Gakushuin University, died last week and the couple attended his family funeral Saturday.

On November 12th, Kei Komuro met with his mother's ex-fiancé in the evening at a law firm. Both men had legal representation at the ~90 minute meeting after 8pm and a document was signed confirming the man [received/will accept] settlement money to resolve the financial dispute. Both sides "mutually confirmed that the problem was finally resolved."

The ex-fiancé said "I will not ask for anything in the future."

Mako and Kei Komuro leave for the US on November 14.

Fantastic news! Now, hopefully, the man will disappear into background forever.

I really truly thought that this would drag on for years. This is a great way to leave Japan. No lingering debts to take care of. Wooooooo!

Agree with both comments above. This problem is (finally) off Kei's shoulders and he and Princess Mako can move forward to a peaceful, happy life together. Wonderful news!

Komuro settles mother's money trouble | NHK WORLD-JAPAN News
Quote:
[...]

Komuro met the ex-fiance and his representative on Friday evening at the office of Komuro's lawyer in Tokyo.

The representative says the two sides agreed that a payment from Komuro's side would settle the issue, and the ex-fiance had signed a document to confirm this.

The representative says he believes the matter has been settled and the ex-fiance will make no further demands in regard to it.

[...]

Komuro released a statement earlier this year in a bid to clarify the issue. It noted the man had said he did not need the money repaid. This reportedly led the Komuro side to believe the problem had been resolved.

Komuro added in the document that he still felt gratitude for the ex-fiance's support, and he was prepared to provide a payment to settle the issue.

[...]
On November 13th, Mako visited the Akishino residence in Akasaka Estate for a final farewell to her family ahead of leaving with Kei for the US the next day. She arrived by taxi around 3pm.

Why could this not be resolved all these years and is suddenly resolved shortly after the wedding? Is it Mako's (family) money which was used to end the dispute?
