Inside Japan’s Former Princess Mako’s Luxurious NYC Apartment
Japan’s former Princess Mako and her husband, Kei Komuro have officially settled in New York City.
The couple arrived at John F Kennedy Airport in New York on Sunday and have reportedly moved into a one-bedroom apartment in the Hell’s Kitchen district. They are currently renting the unit, while Komuro works in a New York-based legal firm, while waiting to retake the bar exam next year. The former royal is also in the process of applying for a visa to work in the US.
The 392-unit building that the couple are staying in is described as the “ultimate in luxury living” on its website, and is conveniently located near Central Park and Lincoln Center, and has a stunning view of the Hudson River, the New York Post reports. The building was completed in 2017, and one-bedroom apartments in the building currently rent for at least US$4,800 a month, according to the Daily Mail. It also boasts amenities such as a rooftop lounge, fitness centre fitted with Peloton bikes, an in-house spa and yoga studio, library curated by The Strand Bookstore and a golf simulator, among others.
The couple tied the knot last month in a simple ceremony that eschewed all the rituals, ceremonies and fanfare that usually accompany a royal wedding in Japan.
