About three weeks have passed since Kei Komuro and Mako Mako left for the United States.
When I was in Japan, I was bombarded with news related to them every day and every night, but recently, the number of times I have heard about their activities has noticeably decreased.
The “finishing touch” was the press conference held by Prince Akishino, Mako’s father, at the end of last month. The “finishing touch” came at the press conference held by Mako’s father, Prince Akishino, at the end of last month, where he complained about the overheated media coverage and did not mention Kei’s name, instead referring to her as ‘my husband’s husband’ or ‘my daughter’s husband.
(Imperial family writer) It is expected that the number of news reports about the Komuros will continue to decrease in the future, but this has left the foreign media scratching their heads. The Chinese media outlet “NetEase” reported on the press restrictions on the couple.
It seems that the Japanese media and the Consulate-General of Japan in New York have reached a tacit agreement on press restrictions on the couple. In other words, it is forbidden to take photos of the couple’s life and work.
The report said. Although this is only a speculation of the Chinese media, a TV station official said
It is true that there was an announcement to ‘pay close attention’ to the news coverage of Mr. and Mrs. Komuro. It is true that there was an announcement to ‘pay close attention’ to the news coverage of the Komuros, partly for compliance reasons, but also apparently at the request of the Imperial Household Agency behind the scenes. We can no longer stake out her private life 24 hours a day or interview her directly.
I can’t do it anymore.
Japanese TV stations, which have bureaus in major cities around the world, were supposed to have the advantage of reporting on the Komuros’ activities in the U.S., but they have been blocked from doing so. According to the aforementioned Chinese media, if the “ban” is broken
According to the aforementioned Chinese media, if he breaks the “ban,” there is a possibility that he will be restricted from residing in New York.
The Chinese media reported that if you break the “ban,” you may be restricted from working in New York. It also said that media representatives would face some kind of disadvantage when obtaining or renewing their visas.
On the other hand, news organizations that follow the rules will be able to
If Mr. and Mrs. Komuro attend a reception in New York, they may be able to obtain the right to be photographed and interviewed by a representative.
The Japanese Association in New York has also offered some “benefits.
The local Japanese association is also concerned about Mr. and Mrs. Komuro. The local Japanese association is also very careful about Mr. and Mrs. Komuro, and even though they have married and become ordinary people, they are still treated as special guests.
With the exception of the weekly magazines, Japan’s major media outlets have bowed down before the Komuros, which means that there will be more opportunities to learn about their recent activities through the paparazzi. Already, the UK’s Daily Mail and other publications have reported on the area where the Komuros live in New York, and published photos of them shopping in good company.
On Twitter, a local resident posted a video of Kei walking down the street with his hands in the pockets of his suit pants, and the video quickly spread through social networking sites. It is impossible to control even the foreign media.
However, it is highly likely that this will decrease in the future. A woman in her 40s living in New York told me, “I’m not sure how much I can do.
In the U.S., the Komuros are hardly talked about. The fact that the two of them are actively involved in the media is also a big factor.
In contrast, the Komuros don’t have a backbone that will “stick” with Americans, so the paparazzi won’t bite. Even if they were to get a scoop photo, the price would be one zero different from the market price in Japan. There are not many media outlets in Japan that will buy them for that much money.
In February next year, Mr. Komuro is scheduled to take the bar exam again. There will be an uproar over whether he passes or fails, but until then, the situation will probably remain quiet.
