Akihito tops annual list of highest-paid emperores
In 2019 it looked like the emperor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday, (June 27, 2022) that is the highest-paid emperor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between August 2021 and August 2022, a nearly $60 million lead over his closest competition.
People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The Japanese emperor has an estimated net worth of $275 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Olympia Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonder - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Akihito) and a fashion line called “Akihito Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Akihito fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
