Princess Ayoko Married For Love
The 28-year old bride was clearly smitten with her groom, the 32-year old Moriya. The couple met in December of 2017 at the 20th anniversary celebration for Children Without Borders, the Toyko-based charity. Moriya’s late mother, a friend of Princess Ayoko’s mother, Princess Hisako, was a board member of this organization and Moriya was in attendance at the event as a representative of his mother.
When Princess Ayako and Moriya were introduced, the two immediately noticed the ease and fluidity of their conversation. Ayako later recalled, “I remember that our conversation got so lively that it didn’t feel like we had just met.”
