Princess Sayako


Married to: Yoshiki Kuroda

On: 11/15/2005

After bidding a ceremonial farewell to her family and her royal title at the weekend, the former Princess Sayako of Japan tied the knot with her 40-year-old urban planner fiane, Yoshiki Kuroda in a low-key ceremony marking the first time that an emperor’s daughter has married a commoner. The bride’s modern taste was evident by her understated, white A-line gown with long sleeves, which was said to have been inspired by a garment worn by the character Princess Clarisse in the anime feature “Lupin III : The Castle of Cagliostro.” A strand of pearls enhanced the refined look. Tradition was honored at the reception, when the newly dubbed Mrs. Koroda donned a cream-coloured kimono and gold-embroidered sash passed on from her mother.
