If you haven’t heard, Kei Komuro is now the controversial husband of Mako Akishino. Mako is part of the Japanese royal family. Kei has been under the spotlight because he seems to have a not so clean background. Mainly, Kei’s mother has been accused of swindling men for money. Therefore, some people believe Kei is doing the same with Mako Komuro to make use of the Japanese tax payer’s money.
Now that’s out of the way.
There are several mysteries surrounding Kei Komuro. The Japanese royal family seems to have worked hard to fix the image of the commoner, but some things are just not adding up. Kei has a nice profile page setup for him on the Lowenstein Sandler’s team list. He’s listed along with his list of education and awards, but recently his “Fordham’s JFK Profile in Courage and Sweat Equity Award” disappeared from the company profile.

What does Kei Komuro say about his “Fordham’s JFK Profile in Courage and Sweat Equity Award”?
Kei Komuro’s agent, Naofumi Ueshiba states the following regarding the Fordham’s JFK award
As for the profile, the awards are listed with the name of Fordham University in the same way as the usual method in the United States, and the idea is that it will be easy to convey that it is an internal award of the university. It is written. It seems that it was a very common notation in the United States, but it seems that there were many inquiries from the Japanese mass media, and it was corrected so that it could be understood by adding an explanation that there is a mass media who misunderstands. That is the background. Unless otherwise inquired, it would have been left as it was.– Naofumi Ueshiba, agent of Kei Komuro
This “JFK Profile in Courage and Sweat Equity Award” is an award originally issued by the Legal Clinic of Fordham University. At law school, there are many educational programs for the purpose of training legal profession, but the legal clinic is a program that develops practical skills through practical experience under the guidance of an instructor. .. It seems that it will be given to the one who stands out most among the students of the program.
Why does it matter who or what Kei Komuro is?
The story about Kei Komuro only enrages people that pay tax in Japan or cares about the tradition of a Royal Family. The royal family lives off of tax dollars. Regardless of what the couple says, princess Mako’s savings, housing, security is all provided by the Japanese tax dollars. As we speak, they are “temporarily” living in an apartment in Tokyo that costs $10,000/month. Kei Komuro had security with him at all times during his stay in New York. Kei Komuro says he doesn’t use anything from the Royal Family as he is surrounded by security provided by the Royal Family / tax dollars.
