Kei Komuro and Mako Mako have finally begun their new life in New York. There seems to be a lot of interest from the international media in the house that will be their base.
The Daily Mail reported that the couple’s new home is a one-bedroom rental apartment in the Hell’s Kitchen area of Manhattan, New York City. The property is a redeveloped piece of land where a warehouse used to be, and the monthly rent is said to be $4,800, or about 550,000 Japanese yen.
The lobby is said to be staffed 24 hours a day, and there is also a fitness center, yoga studio, golf simulator, and spa. According to the local coordinator
According to the local coordinator, “The Hell’s Kitchen district used to be unsafe due to a series of gang wars, but in recent years it has been redeveloped and turned into a fashionable district. In recent years, however, the area has been redeveloped and turned into a fashionable district with many famous places such as Central Park, Broadway, and Carnegie Hall.
He said. However, there are reports that public safety is worsening again due to the Covid-19 scare, so there are some concerns.
Equally worrisome is the cost of living. New York is known for its high cost of living, and now Mr. Komuro has failed the state bar exam. Mr. Komuro is already working at a law firm, where he is treated as a “clerk” and earns about 6 million yen a year. If he had passed the exam, he would have become a lawyer and his first year’s income would have skyrocketed to an estimated 23 million yen, a huge miscalculation. The coordinator mentioned above also said
“The coordinator mentioned above also pointed out that the apartment she signed a lease for may have been rented on the assumption that she would pass the exam.
The coordinator mentioned above also pointed out, “I suspect that the property she signed a lease for was rented on the assumption that she would pass the exam.
Taiwan’s Shohin Daily reported that Mako’s annual rent for a luxury apartment exceeds her income, even though it is said that she can only expect to earn around 6 million a year.
“Mako is expected to have obtained a U.S. visa as her spouse, but then she would not be able to work. Moreover, it is expected to take some time to obtain a work visa. There are rumors that she will work as a researcher at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but this has not been confirmed by the Japanese Imperial Family.”
He pointed out that unless he and Mako “work together,” they will not be able to afford rent or even a living.
On the other hand, Noriko Mogi, a New York State lawyer at Baron Stoll Law Firm, had an interesting comment on the 14th edition of “Mr. Sunday” (Fuji TV).
She said, “The big law firms hire the best students, so they have to pay a certain amount of money to hire them. (Regardless of whether they pass or fail,) in Japanese yen, I think the annual salary is close to 20 million yen.
According to him, major firms, especially in New York, sometimes pay an unqualified assistant the same salary as a first-year lawyer in order to attract talented people.
In fact, Mr. Komuro’s annual salary of 6 million yen, which has become an established fact in the mass media, is merely a figure calculated based on general examples of law firms in the U.S., and is likely not applicable to Company L, where Mr. Komuro works.
In addition, according to a person familiar with the situation of lawyers in New York
“In addition, according to a person familiar with the situation of lawyers in New York, “The ‘sales war’ between law firms in New York State is known to be fierce. In such a situation, Ms. Komuro stands out as the ‘fiancée of Princess Mako. Unlike in Japan, each person’s salary is different over there. Ms. Komuro may have been paid a salary that takes such expectations into account.
He said. On the other hand, Mr. Mogi said.
On the other hand, Mr. Mogi said, “I think she will be required to work a commensurate amount of time. Specifically, about 10 to 12 hours a day. They also work on weekends.
He testified about the harsh working environment. On top of that, Mr. Komuro is scheduled to take the exam again in February next year.
“I think it will be difficult. I think it will be difficult to balance (work and study for the exam). Generally speaking, if you fail twice, there is a risk of dismissal.
Since the time for studying will be limited, the time they spend together as a couple will be further restricted. I hope they don’t start having differences right away…
