About The Book
It’s the fantasy of many young women: marry a handsome prince, move into a luxurious palace, and live happily ever after. But that’s not how it turned out for Masako Owada. Ben Hills’s fascinating portrait of Princess Masako and the Chrysanthemum Throne draws on research in Tokyo and rural Japan, at Oxford and Harvard, and from more than sixty interviews with Japanese, American, British, and Australian sources-many of whom have never spoken publicly before-shedding light on the royal family’s darkest secrets, secrets that can never be openly discussed in Japan because of the reverence in which the emperor and his family are held. But most of all, this is a story about a love affair that went tragically wrong.
