The protest took place in the Japanese capital, Tokyo, in conjunction with the wedding of Japanese Princess Mako with Kei Komuro, a commoner.
Princess Mako’s decision to marry her colleagues has caused anger among a group of Japanese, who adhere to conservative views. On the day of the ceremony, there was a protest in the capital.
The conservatives expressed their rejection of this marriage for two reasons, the first related to the frustration of Mako’s father, and his regret for her decision, although he did not show it, and the second reason was due to a strange scandal related to the groom’s family.
Japan’s Princess Mako married her former university classmate Kei Komuro on Tuesday after an eight-year courtship, graduating from the imperial family.
Japan’s strict succession laws prevent women from ascending the throne and force them to give up their privileges if they marry commoners.
The wedding was limited to completing the official papers required for a marriage to move away from the usual ceremonies of imperial weddings, including the reception. She went alone by car to marry Kei at the registry office, away from the cameras and the public divided over the affair.
