Kichise Michiko posts her wedding photos in blog

Her blog post on 10th March.


It's been 2 years since we got married, but at the time, both of us were busy and we did not manage to get our wedding photos taken. With that, at the beginning of this year, we planned to have our 2-year belated wedding photography done. From before, we had settled on YOSHINKO-san, an artist in charge of WALTS, whose style we love.

YOSHINKO-san lives in Tokushima. So both of us enthusiastically went to WALTS in Tokushima (*laugh*). After that, we left everything up to her. We love the beautifully taken photos in the nature of Tokushima and in the studio. It was then compiled into one volume and a gorgeous wedding photo book was sent to us. It was tastefully designed and we were touched by the end product. At the time the photo book reached us, we learned of the new life growing in my womb and our happiness was doubled. Unexpectedly, this has become the first photos of the three of us as a family. With the growing life in me, I will cherish each day as it passes by.

Japan Academy Award Ceremony

Being a host at the Japan Academy Award

So that I would not show any disrespect to the award winners, I have been staying at home a lot since the beginning of the year, studying the nominated films, interview articles and such.

The nervousness I felt during the actual ceremony was different from last year, but being in such a luxurious hall once again filled me with emotion. I was a clumsy host but thank you for all the support from those in the hall and in front of the television! I want to express my gratitude again to everyone involved in the Japan Academy Award for letting me have such a precious experience.

I don't know how many years, or tens of years it will take but I will do my best so that I can stand in that same place again(^^)

Nakamaru Yuichi and Katase Nana dating?

On the latest issue of FRIDAY, Nakamaru Yuichi (29) of KAT-TUN and actress Katase Nana (31) were caught on a 'late night gyutan date'. They are currently working together in Nihon TV's Sunday Countdown Show Shuuichi. The circumstances of their meeting are still unclear; it could just be a matter of colleagues having a meal together, or they could be dating. Some of the comments from his fans so far.

"Yuichi's first Friday. Congratulations."
"Here comes Nakamaru in Friday━━━━(゚∀゚)━━━━!!"
"It's obviously for publicity."
 "What the hell's with this topic? Disgusting."
"They're just working together on the Sunday program. I don't think she likes him."
 "I was getting worried that there hasn't been rumours although he's already 29. Thank goodness."
"I'm glad that it's Katase-san."
"Katase Nana is taller than him."
"A well-matched couple!   (*´艸`*)"
"Why aren't the Johnny's Otaku throwing a fit??? It's okay since it's Nakamaru-kun?"
"It seems just like Nakamaru not to mind that she's taller than him."
"The fans reactions are interesting (*laugh*)"
"Why are his fans so happy he's in Friday?"
"Unexpected reactions from Johnny's fans (*laugh*)"
"It's rare for people to be so happy when an idol is caught in Friday (*laugh*)"
"With everyone in congratulatory mode, wouldn't he himself be shocked? He must be thinking, 'Huh, it's just whatever since it's me??'"
"The fact that his fans are happy reflects on his character."

It's still unclear what happened during the date but it would surely be a topic on the talk and variety shows later. So this might just be a publicity stunt after all.

I had a part in 'Paji'.
Filming was only for a day and it was the first time in a while I wore a wedding dress.
I wonder how many times it has been...

This time, I walked down the wedding aisle with someone a little different.
It's a story that will warm your heart.
Look forward to it.


Paji will air on Wednesday, 27th March at 9pm on TV Tokyo. The original work is a manga by Takashi Murakami and portrays the struggles of a grandfather (Papa + Jii-chan = Paji) raising his 5-year-old granddaughter Momo, after her parents pass away. Mao plays the grown-up Momo.
