Why do Japanese people hate Kei Komuro?

You may have heard Mako Akishino from the royal family in Japan has married a commoner name Kei Komuro. Why is there such a backlash against Kei Komuro for being a commoner. Why won’t the media or the citizens of Japan leave them alone? We’ll break it down here for you.

Why people do not like Kei Komuro in a nutshell

Kei Komuro is a gold digger with a past.

Just like his mother, he’s only using Mako’s money to live a lavish life.

He has lied his way into his marriage with Mako Akishino and now planning to live a comfortable life in Manhattan on tax payer’s money.

But Mako rejected the Royal Family payout, right?

Yes, Mako rejected on receiving the royal family payout. However every coverage of them still shows that they are using tax money. Even the latest video of them arriving at the JFK airport shows that they have Japanese security and Japanese transportation. Can a $60-100k salary afford private security? Who pays for their home in Manhattan?

The traditions of the Japanese Royal Family

Many conservative Japanese families believe the Royal Family members can only marry someone just as high in position. Maybe someone respected and famous or has a successful business. It usually must be someone that is respected by the public.

  1. Mathew, thanks for the article. We Japanese are really infuriated that how SOME of the “imperial family” are doing everything to cover up the scandal that Mako and Komuro have created – as well as using their imperial perks to attain the impossibles for their son as well. SOME imperial family, are Mr. and Mrs. Akishinomiya, But they could not use their power wrongfully without the support of the former Empress, Michiko. Her husband retired, but Michiko apparently did not want to step back from the spotlight.
    With their “authority” and power (which they should not have used in justifying what they are doing wrong), they are bringing us down, in the midst of covid devasted society.

    Mathew, thanks very much for the article. Our critical comments are deleted, and TV and major media are full of disgusting comments praising Komuro’s “career” and “great personality” We wonder if we live in China or North Korea.

    Our current Emperor family are all morally right. We love them. What infuriates us is how Akishinomiyas – Mako’s parents – are doing everything shamelessly to cover up the scandal that Mako and Komuro have created – as well as their own scandals. In this Covid hit era, the Akishinomiya remodeled their residence, with a whopping 4.5 billion yen, where his elder brother – the current Emperor – spent only 0.9 billion yen as he succeeded the throne and moved to his palace. And it is reported that the actual expense was like 3.7 billion yen and some citizens have asked for the investigation of the difference, 0.8 billion yen.

  3. “2 Mako’s parents put Komuro on Imperial fast track to fake his careers.

    He’s never have gone through exams. His admission to his college was just by interview. But it was before he met Mako. Then after that – He joined one of the megabanks in Tokyo, which is reported that Mako’s father used his influence. Sadly, it was reported that he was not a dedicated diligent worker, and he quit his job in 21 months. Then he started to work as a law clerk at a legal firm that Mako’s father’s friend runs. He worked 3 days a week, no overtime. Here, again, he was a nuisance for the other workers – they said they were happy to see him quit. And he was admitted to Fordham Law, though he did not fulfill the requirements – he did not study law in college in Tokyo. And he got a full scholarship for 3 years – no need to pay back – because he appealed that he is a fiancé of a Japanese princess.

  4. #3 The full scholarship is given to great academic achievers but look at the results! He failed the N.Y. Bar Exam, where 90 % of the foreign applicants pass.

    Until the result was made public our TV media was full of crap.
    There was one news that Komuro won 1st place on N.Y. Bar related competition and almost all the media here gave him the greatest appraisal. But it turned out that it was not so much a big competition, and that his paper was so poorly written, like “A new coffee shop should not use a name like Star Bags Coffee” because people get confused with Starbucks”

    It was reported the day before their marriage, it was apparent that people would think Komuro is great but their attempt failed. He did not pass the exam.
