Mako Komuro and her husband Kei left Tokyo’s Haneda International Airport for New York on Sunday.
Former Japanese princess has left the country for a life in New York after giving up her royal status to marry her “commoner” husband.
Mako Komuro was pictured boarding a plane to the US with her new husband Kei on Sunday.
The couple, both 30, married in a small ceremony on 26 October, which saw her forfeit her imperial status.
At a news conference announcing their marriage, Mrs Komuro said “He is someone I cannot do without and marriage is that decision needed for us to live on, staying true to our hearts.”
Her husband added: “I love Mako. I want to live the only life I have with the person I love.”
She met her new husband 10 years ago while the pair were studying at Tokyo’s International Christian University. They got engaged four years ago, but have been separated for the past three, due to Mr Komuro’s studies in the US.
