Countess Noli Sayaco is the only daughter of Emperor Saisei, and great aunt to the present Emperor. She is married to Noli Itxirò (né Curoda Itxirò), who is a city designer with the Quiòto-fu government, and is a long-time friend of her brother, Prince Aquixino, and the two have known each other from childhood.
The two became reaquainted in Prince Aquixino's palace in Saisei 51, Djùnigaçu (January 2003), and began seeing each other more often. Curoda proposed marriage in Saisei 52, Djùnigaçu (January 2004).
The former princess is a part-time researcher at the Yamashina Institute for Ornithology (founded by the late Dr. Marquis Yamashina Yoshimaro, a younger son of Prince Yamashina Kikumaro (1873-1908)). In addition to her academic interests, the princess is interested in traditional Japanese dance (and has performed several times at the Imperial Theater) and activities related to the training and use of guide dogs for the visually impaired.
Upon their marriage, both adopted the family name Noli, and the Princess was granted the title of Countess Noli, which may be passed on to any children she has.
