There are two families in Japan which you can never leave - The Yakuza (crime gangs) and the royal family...Diana, Princess of Wales, had it relatively easy compared with another lonely princess, Crown Princess Masako of Japan. A thoroughly modern woman in collision with an ancient and unreformed system, Masako is a brilliant woman who sacrificed her career to marry a love-struck royal, Crown Prince Naruhito. Here is a fascinating look behind the 'Chrysanthemum Curtain' into the arcane world of the Japanese royal family.
