  • Masako
    Crown Princess Masako is the eldest daughter of Hisashi Owada, the former president of the International Court of Justice. Masako married His Imperial Highness Crown Prince Naruhito in a traditional wedding ceremony on 9 June 1993. Masako and Naruhito have one child - Princess Aiko - who was born on December 1, 2001. The birth of a daughter caused a huge uproar in Japan as many people wondered whether male-only royal primogeniture law would be changed to allow a woman to inherit the Chrysanthemum Throne. The Japanese lawmakers had planned to change the law that would allow women to ascend to the throne so that the imperial throne be continued into the future in a stable manner. However, the plan was shelved after Masako's brother-in-law, Prince Akishino, and his wife Princess Kiko gave birth to their third child - a son called Hisahito. Masako has been out of public gaze since 2002. Media claim severe pressure to produce a male heir and adjusting and conforming to the life in the Imperial Family has taken a toll on her mental and physical health. Reuters
