The wedding took place at the Imperial Palace on 29 June 1990.

The engagement and marriage of Prince Akishino to the former Kawashima Kiko broke precedent in several respects. First, at the time, the groom was still a graduate student at Gakushuin and married before his older brother, Crown Prince Naruhito.

Empress Michiko, although a commoner, was from a very wealthy family; her father was the president of a large flour-milling company. Finally, the engagement and marriage was widely reported to be a love match. The empress, though of common blood, was one of the candidates recommended to the imperial family by several prestigious women's universities.

Kiko nodded in agreement and rose from her seat, pulling the blankets to cover Xena up to her shoulders, finally satisfied that Xena was as comfortable as possible, she turned round and left the tent.
