Who is Ayaka Komatsu and why is her place of birth significant?
Ayaka Komatsu is a Japanese supermodel and actress. She was born on July 23, 1986 in the city of Ichinoseki in Japan. That city is located in the Iwate Prefecture. Iwate Prefecture was the site of the horrible attack of former AKB48 member Rina Kawaei and current member Anna Iriyama as the two girls were attacked by a crazy fan during an AKB48 handshake event. There is just something amazing about Japanese women. They are so beautiful, sweet and kind. And I also think Japanese women and Asians in general have an exotic look to them. Ayaka Komatsu will probably become one of my favorite Japanese models because she has beautiful eyes and she just looks so sweet. With this brief introduction, who really is Ayaka Komatsu?

Her first notable movie role was in the movie called Odoru Daisousasen The Movie 2. In this movie, Komatsu plays the role of a person that has been victimized by a vampire. In 2002, she got another big role when she was assigned to play the role of the character Minako Aino. This role played by Komatsu was for the live action version of the anime called Bishojo Senshi Sailor Moon.
