Princess Kako, the 24-year-old granddaughter of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko, graduated from International Christian University in Tokyo on Friday, and expressed her wish for her sister's happiness.

In written answers to questions from the media, Princess Kako commented on the postponement of the marriage between her sister, Princess Mako, 27, and Kei Komuro following reports that Komuro's family was involved in a financial dispute. "I would like my sister's wishes to be met, as I believe the important detail is how they feel about each other," she said.

Regarding her own marriage prospects, the princess wrote, "I wish to get married in time, at a point that isn't too late. My ideal partner would be someone with whom I can be relaxed."
