Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Japan’s Princess Aiko Turns 20, Celebrates Coming of Age” – below is their description.

Japanese Princess Aiko celebrated her coming of age at Tokyo’s Imperial Palace after turning 20 on Wednesday. She is the only child of Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako.

She will be joining the rest of her family taking part in official duties while she continues studying Japanese literature at Gakushuin University.

Aiko is not eligible to ascend the Chrysanthemum Throne as only male heirs are allowed to reign.

Under Japanese law, she also has to leave her family if she marries a commoner, just like her older cousin, Mako, did last month when she married her college sweetheart Kei Komuro.

As a child, Aiko was known to be a big fan of Japanese traditional sumo wrestling and memorized the names of all the wrestlers and is an animal lover, like her mother.
