TOKYO — Japanese Princess Ayako marries commoner at shrine ceremony.

 Japan’s Princess Ayako married a commoner in a ritual-filled ceremony Monday at Tokyo’s Meiji Shrine.

Ayako and groom Kei Moriya were shown on national news walking slowly before guests at the shrine. The wedding took place in one of the pagoda-like buildings in the shrine complex and included an exchange of rings and a sharing of a cup of sake, according to Japanese media.

Both rituals are relatively routine for Shinto-style weddings, including those of regular Japanese.

Ayako, 28, is the daughter of the emperor’s cousin, and Moriya, 32, works for major shipping company Nippon Yusen.

She wore a Heian-era style hairdo, which is swept back into a ponytail, and a traditional robe splashed with red and green patterns, while Moriya wore coattails. She later changed into a red Japanese robe.

“I am filled with happiness,” she told reporters after the ceremony.

Women who marry into the imperial family become members of the family, but those who marry commoners, like Ayako, must leave.

Moriya said he hoped to help Ayako adjust to a commoner’s life.

“I want us to work together, hand in hand, to create a family filled with smiles,” he said.

Ayako bid farewell to Emperor Akihito last week. She said Monday she hoped to continue to help the emperor and empress as a former member of the imperial family.

The eldest granddaughter of the emperor is set to marry a commoner in 2020.

Akihito has said he will abdicate next year. His eldest son, Crown Prince Naruhito, will ascend to the Chrysanthemum Throne on May 1.

Ayako and Moriya said when they announced their wedding plans that they met because their mothers were friends and hit it off immediately.

“It didn’t feel as though we had met for the first time,” Ayako told reporters at their engagement.

Moriya said he had been attracted to her gentle spirit.

“And I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her,” he said.

Ayako’s father, Prince Takamado, who was active in supporting Japanese soccer, died in 2002.

  • This story has been corrected to show the emperor’s eldest granddaughter, not daughter, is set to marry in 2020.

  408. Hello there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate!
    He always kept talking about this. I will forward this post to him.

    Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

  409. Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed!
    Very helpful information particularly the last
    part 🙂 I care for such information a lot. I was seeking this particular info for a long time.

    Thank you and good luck.

  410. I think this is one of the most important information for me.
    And i am glad reading your article. But should remark on some
    general things, The web site style is great, the articles is really excellent
    : D. Good job, cheers

  411. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the
    net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about
    worries that they just do not know about. You managed to
    hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole
    thing without having side-effects , people could take
    a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  412. Its like you read my mind! You seem to understand so much about this, such as you wrote the book in it
    or something. I think that you can do with some p.c.
    to power the message home a bit, but instead of that, that is excellent blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
