Ayame Gouriki becomes the host of an awards show
Her movie list is still short but she has starred in “Fireworks from the Heart” and “Thriller Restaurant” in 2010, and “Quartet!” in 2012. And for Ayame Gouriki her interesting life does not stop with her just making movies. How did it become this way? On September 27, 2012, Ayame was the host of SkyPerfecTV!'S “SkyPerfect! Award 2012. It was held at the Tokyo Dome City Hall. Earlier that month, Ayame Gouriki threw out the first pitch at a Japanese baseball game. Gouriki was host for the first time but did a great job. She was wearing a pink dress at the event which I must say looked great on her! She has such a nice smile too. If you are chosen to be a host of an awards show, that is one indication that you are rising in popularity. How has Ayame become more popular even though most fans in Japan would probably say she is not very stunning or sexy? I can probably guess luck might play a part in her rise.
