Princess Aiko, the only child of Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako, will turn 20 on Dec. 1, but most of her coming-of-age ceremonies will take place on Dec. 5, the Imperial Household Agency said Tuesday.

Since Princess Aiko's birthday falls on a Wednesday, a weekday, the ceremonies were mostly put back to the following Sunday to avoid disrupting her classes at Gakushuin University in Tokyo, where she is currently studying Japanese literature.
