complex post-traumatic stress disorder because of media coverage.

Being rich doing nothing is worth some media coverage no ?

Being rich doing nothing is worth some media coverage no ?

Not really…

Like I said before, parasitic media has blown this out of all proportions!!! We are talking about ONLY 4 million, if it was 4 trillion yen, I would understand. But 4 million????!!!! Most people in Japan have debts of about 50 million for house/mansion + car + education loans. So 4 million is a tiny amount which did not warrant such media coverage, unless media's intention was to throw a wrench in to this relationship and create a crap storm to feed themselves...

Because of this, she can't take public money and now suffering from PTSD. All this reminds me of Diana...

All the other royals are jealous. She is free and will be living large in NYC soon.

Just let them get married and do what they want. It is their life!

It’s finallyofficial’. No longer just a “boyfriend”. Princess Mako can now marry her “fiancé” Kei Komuro.

Congratulations on your wedding engagement!

- “The Imperial Household Agency said Fri that Princess Mako, niece of Emperor Naruhito, will marry Kei Komuro on Oct 26, 2021.” -

No wonder they wanna leave for the US...get out of here while you still can and good luck.

12 ( +21 / -9 )

Why does she have PTSP? No mention of the cause? 

Three years' separation from the man she loves and what should be a private, personal decision splashed all over the news, her own father talking on telly about how 'the people' need to be persuaded....probably more than enough to drill holes in the head of someone who's so far led a pretty sheltered life.

will still try to shine on Talk Shows, Media, etc.

Like she's done so far? (not).

Female members of the Japanese royal family tend to fade into oblivion once they leave the family. I'm sure she and Kei-kun will do the same.

Feel a bit sorry for them - neither of them seems to have sought the limelight and yet are put under the microscope.

Of course though I would love for them to give a final press conference and just give a big f-you to all the people privately and publicly who have put them under pressure.

Wish them all the best!

He’s good enough for her. That’s good enough for me.

12 ( +14 / -2 )

A similar topic was addressed in a JT “opinion” piece/question today about the differences of Western & Japanese media,

*@zichi 5:29pm**: “Why does she have PTSP? No mention of the cause? Not sure why it’s even mentioned” *

As it appears common lately, it may be to garner some public sentiment for a politician, royal or celebrity, therefore necessitating some type of editorial tag to a news story about said person.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

One additional benefit to this evening’s *official ***IHA announcement of their engagement*, it may finally “quiet” (to put it, politely) the self-proclaimed, “common sense” “Know-It-Alls of ALL THINGS JAPAN”*:

*- in Sep 28’s “Princess Mako's boyfriend arrives from U.S. for wedding”: @5:24 am: “Right, and they are expected to be married within a couple of months. I guess only people with common sense can see that he is her fiancé. I suppose from your point of view they will be "unofficially" engaged until the day they marry! - Oh, keep in mind, it's not the press that decides it, nor the royal family either, since they are not holding any official ceremonies regarding it. Don be fooled by what you read in the press!“ -*

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

When three consecutive generations of female imperial family members have suffered from mental illness under the "exacting standard" to which they are held, perhaps it's time for the government, the Imperial Household Agency, the family itself, the press, and the public to re-evaluate the rigid and oftentimes unnecessary expectations placed upon the imperial family. First, there's Empress Emerita Michiko, who has twice literally been rendered mute for lengthy periods, first as crown princess, mostly due to bullying from her mother-in-law, and then again as Empress due to pressures from the IHA and scrutiny from the press. Her second pregnancy was also terminated after a medically advised abortion, once again due to pressures of the job. She has also suffered several other stress-induced mental and physical health issues over the decades. Then there's her daughter-in-law, Empress Masako, who has been suffering from an almost two-decade period of depression and self-isolation first triggered by the pressure to produce a male heir as well as from the almost complete loss of her personal freedoms on top of relentless tabloid coverage. It has only been the last few years that she has started taking part in a very limited number of official engagements. This brings us to the third generation: Princess Aiko, daughter of the Emperor and Empress, who stopped attending elementary school at one point for an extended time due to social anxiety and alleged bullying, and, now we have her older cousin, Princess Mako suffering from PTSD caused by a years-long postponement of her marriage and the resulting press scrutiny over a money issue she had absolutely nothing to do with.

This condition was apparently brought on by extensive media coverage. So, why does Japan Today choose to make a big headline out of it?

My wife has been going on for years that this marriage is wrong or that Komura is dodgy

Just where in the world do you get the number 4 million?

Read the article....

Mako will become the first royal to forego traditional marriage rites and a payment -- reportedly 150 million yen -- since World War II, according to local media.

150 million yen is about $1.4 million or so in US $.

Nowhere is the amount of 4 million yen mentioned

0 ( +2 / -2 )

The princess’ experience has uncanny echoes of that of Princess Masako.

She has declined the traditional lump-sum payment of around 150 million yen given the furor over the Komuro family’s finances the media has roused.

Poor Mako-san. It’s understood what happens amongst commenters but seems even the editors and staff are not exempt from “*sniping**” *and the questioning of their decisions and journalistic integrity:

Isn't this Komuro's family rumoured to be of Korean origin, which is why so many are against their marriage?

He’s good enough for her. That’s good enough for me.

How can you say such a thing??

He didn’t wear a tie when he got off the plane. According to some commenters, that makes him worse than Hitler. /s

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

I have no doubt the media feeding frenzy has not helped her mental condition but I do not think the IHA can escape responsibility for effectively imprisoning the family in a cage of rigid protocol to control their every action and thought, they make North Korea look positively liberal!.

Alfie, don’t see the point of your comment? As Korean nobles and families migrated to Japan over millennia, simple arithmetic dictates most Japanese today can trace their ancestry back to Koreans at some point (with the possible exception of the Ainu).

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

The a-hole in me wants to say “finally a Japanese royal in touch with the modern generation” but having what should be a celebration of the next phase of her life being fodder news outlets, and not being allowed to capitalize on makes me feel for her. I hope the royal host enjoys the mud bath, it is well deserved.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

PTSD lmao please. Just wait until you move to NYC LOL.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

Just where in the world do you get the number 4 million?

Four million yen is the amount of the loan made by Komuro’s mother’s ex.

Apparently people who have relatives who have debt aren’t allowed to get married.

Isn't this Komuro's family rumoured to be of Korean origin, which is why so many are against their marriage?

In 2001 (I think it was) the then-Emperor Akihito talked at the press conference to mark his 68th birthday, about his own Korean roots. Pots and kettles, dark colors?

Who cares about ‘origins’.

9 ( +9 / -0 )

It’s a wasted opportunity to kick females out of the Japanese royal family upon marriage. But in this young ladies case it is a blessing in disguise.

I still cannot fathom how the Komuro’s mother’s money problems have anything to do with him. She is responsible for her own obligations. On a side note, how the royals ever let this issue become a problem is ridiculous. Couldn’t a wealthy supporter be found to fix the problem?

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Good for you @cleo 10:04pm giving another self-proclaimed, ‘know-it-all about all-things-Japan’ their comeuppance with ‘facts’. Seems they’re always so focused on “Read the article’ AND sniping another reader’s comments about current events that they failed to recall the whole initial issue that delayed this now ‘official’ engagement in the first place.

*- @Yubaru 6:53pm: responding to @Paul 5:17pm: [Like I said before, We are talking about ONLY 4 million????!!!!

PM goes out for an expensive dinner on the tax payers dime

"Wow, how could he do this! Great job keeping him in power oji-san”

Media speculates if it's right to give tax payer money to the princess that might be used to pay his family debt

"How is it any of your business? Just leave them alone."

Seems a bit hypocritical.

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Mild depression is what she is suffering from, not PTSD.

Her parents have a lot to answer for, despite what they have said their lack of support for their daughter has been appalling. Both of the girls are sensible and generally well-balanced but I dislike their parents intensely and the boy is far too much like his father for my liking.

This whole thing sadly is becoming Harry and Megan East. I can imagine her royal handlers and perhaps her parents too have said and done things that are not nice to traumatize her. She also did relief work after the Tohoku Earthquake without revealing her identity. She undoubtedly saw death. That may have been traumatic too.

The Imperial Household Agency has decided this.

This Malicious Agency obsesses with the destruction of Imperial Household members.

Leave them alone. Both the IHA and the media have needlessly exacerbated a private issue and involved those who had nothing to do with it. I hope they move to the US and never look back.

Once she gets married, leaves Japan behind, I think that she will recover quickly. Although you can't choose your family (she will always be stuck to some degree with her ghastly parents) she can detach from them. The best advice I would give to her parants is "Never demonize anybody, because you will come out of it looking the biggest demon of all".

Well, I feel sorry for her. Good luck to her and him in their escape from the clutches of the royal handlers and the press.

Princess Mako diagnosed with PTSD; to marry Kei Komuro on Oct 26

This is Princess Diana media treatment 2.0 of Princess Mako. Princess Mako will still have to deal with the paparazzi dirtbags who'll relentlessly hound her down for some DA photograph of her doing the most mundane things in the world that folks do everyday without such harassment (i.e. going to buy food at a supermarket, purchasing a cup of coffee at Starbucks, drinking a beer/wine from a restaurant, etc.).

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

I own a small cottage in a very rural part of England. They are both very welcome to stay there for a while and recuperate before they go to NY.. I know that the people in the village are very discrete and would probably love to invite them for a pint.in the pub. They could both try their luck at the pub quiz and win a free pint.

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

Congratulations to Princess Mako and Kei Komuro.

Moving to USA will be good life experience. Good for the future children to get some experience and exposure outside of Japan.

More of our citizens should travel and live overseas, understanding the world that we live in and how to compete is necessary for Japan's survival. That's why Kono was my pick... LDP was too afraid of him.

Isn’t it odd that any Imperial family woman who choses to forge her own path is diagnosed by the Imperial Household Agency with a mental health issue — “adjustment disorder” for Empress Masako and now “complex PTSD” for Princess Mako.

Isn’t it odd that any Imperial family woman who choses to forge her own path is diagnosed by the Imperial Household Agency with a mental health issue — “adjustment disorder” for Empress Masako and now “complex PTSD” for Princess Mako.

Of course she is mentally ill. She cab actually think outside the box. Definatly a PTSD for thinking like this. Maybe we should'nt be too hard on the media (which reports on statements from her family anyway). Her own family has caused the "PTSD".

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

PTSD is about post trauma. I don’t know why her experience is considered trauma, and kinda makes a mockery of what PTSD really is and what PTSD sufferers are going through. It sounds like depression and inability to handle the stress of being a public figure.

In any case, let them be. Other people’s decisions should not be entertainment for us.

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

That’s no news at all. Try nowadays to find anyone who still is syndrome-free instead. I guess that would be much more difficult for media and paparazzi. lol

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

It appears that her parents and Royal Household Agency was trying to pressure her privately and through the media by giving them details in hopes that she would give up.

However, she and Komuro had more moxy than the family realized. This wedding is happening rather her parents wants it or not. I looked forward to them having a better life in the US.

Ironically, the same people on this thread supporting the young princess was also badmouthing Meghan and Harry. Hypocrites!

I’ve had ptsd and it truly sucks. I hope she gets the help she needs!

I see the fact that Royalty are now being publicly diagnosed with real medical conditions when they have them to be progress. It shows that the present generation of Royals can force even the Household Ministry to call a spade a spade in public, not wrapping it up in useless euphemisms. The fact that Masako-sama's previously serious conditions were given non-medical names or vague-sounding symptoms, for example, probably contributed to her condition actually worsening.

Calling PTSD PTSD is a good start. It shows that this princess IS suffering from something that's not all of her own doing, not some "mood swing", "ill-humour", "lingering ennui" or "retiring conditions" that make it seem as if the woman is at fault for her situation, as well as requiring her to self-correct such "unfortunate attitudes".

Get out of the country, Mako-sama. Get treatment, get better and then get accustomed to your newfound Freedom outside the suffocating fishbowl Japan can often be. (Just don't sign a Netflix contract and seek out Hollywood celebutante status, while simultaneously moaning on about your "lack of privacy"...as some other "former royals" have recently done, pretty please!)

They would be subject to UK Covid entry requirements first. Negative test and 10 days in a quarantined hotel costing 2250 pounds.

Maybe no bad thing, give them 10 days together of quality time. I believe that the food is quite good in these hotels. The £2250.00 may be a problem sinse she has refused the ¥150,000,000, but maybe they can get a loan.

Does NY have similar restrictions at the moment?

I never thought that 4 million yen could cause such nuisance, aggravation, and finally for Princess Mako shell shock.

We are living in a parasitic paradigm and this story is yet another example of that. She's simply desiring to marry the person of her choice and no longer be obligated to play by outdated rules of royalty and yet the media gives her grief for it. Even this JT headline, which gives the impression that her PTSD caused her to make this decision, rather than her making this decision led to the media frenzy that caused the PTSD.

Anyway, like any couple engaging on the adventure and challenge of marriage, I wish both of them well. It'd be nice if the media did, too.

No, Zichi. Surprisingly, Japan has never been on the UK Red List, where hotel quarantines are mandatory. I quarantined at home. Now, if you are double vaccinated and not travelling from a Red List country, you do not need to quarantine. If I go back to Japan, despite being doubled vaccinated, I would have to quarantine in a government detention centre. No, ta.

If he truly loves her he'll understand. As for all the stress she has from being in the limelight, it ain't like she asked for it. I wish tje both of them all the best. And if they ain't gonna have their wedding in a 'Big Fat Greek' way then that's their biz, it's fine.

Let them unite on their special day and let them live their lives. Leave them alone.

I worked too hard to put my two kids through American colleges without borrowing money. For nine years, I was lucky to have one day off a month. "Burned out" is one way to put it; "PTSD" is another. Fortunately, my kids are on their own feet now and I've drastically cut back on my schedule. But for the royals, that's not really possible. They have my sympathy.
