Risa Niigaki Becomes a Movie Actress!

When it comes to the name Risa Niigaki, fans of pop music in Japan will recognize her for her role as band leader of the famous all-girl pop music group Morning Musume. And she is also very cute. For all of her singing activities that she has performed over the last decade with Morning Musume, famous Japanese pop music singer Risa Niigaki announced on May 28, 2012 that she wants to now focus on an acting career. She mentioned also that she wants to accept and take in many things from her co-stars and she also wants to express her own creativity. On that same day, she also appeared at a press conference for the movie called “Tobidase Shinsegumi.” This movie is based on a novel written by Jotaro Kuwahara. The director for this movie will be Shou Nobushi. Filming was expected to commence in Fujisawa on August 20, 2012. Filming will be in four other cities including Enoshima and Kamakura. The plot is basically about an all-female kind of theater troupe who begin to rehearse for “Musical Shinsegumi Makoto” when suddenly the real members from this group resurface and appear from a time period known as the late Edo period. This will be the pop singer’s first movie appearance in over two years. Niigaki who is a Yokohama native, said that she has visited Enoshima often for field trips during her elementary school years. She expressed her love for the Enoshima Aquarium. During her time with Morning Musume, she worked for one day on a part-time basis at a beach house. She said that she wants to go there for a date in the future. Risa said this long before she married her now ex-husband. The movie would open in Kanagawa sometime in 2013 and then soon after theaters in the rest of Japan would be showing the movie.

Risa Niigaki Goes Out to Dinner With Riho Sayashi and Ai Takahashi: Why Is This Interesting?

Risa Niigaki, the famous Japanese pop music singer and once band leader of Morning Musume has been doing some very interesting things the last several years. She has had a couple of “dates.” The first one that she wrote about was with singer Ai Takahashi. Ai Takahashi of course was also part of Morning Musume until her graduation from the group a while after these get togethers were made public. Risa commented that since she had recorded the song “All Night Nippon” that there was some free time for the two of them to spend until the start of a festival that they were supposed to go to. The food that Takahashi and Niigaki had was described by her as “cheesy Hamburg Steak.” She uploaded a photo of the two on her blog having lunch together and on their plates were also some broccoli. It makes you hungry to read about this doesn’t it? This first encounter that the pop music beauty had with her former band mate and friend was in January 2011. It may seem like a long time ago for some of us but two years is actually a short time. At least that’s how it was when I first read and wrote about this story but now we are in 2019, times have passed. The second such “date” that Niigaki went out on was with then new member and member of the group’s 9th generation Riho Sayashi at that time. It was on May 1, 2011 that Niigaki, Sayashi, and their manager had stepped out to eat what was described as a “quick dinner” when they were in between jobs. This marked the first time for Niigaki and Sayashi eating dinner together outside of work. The three mentioned people had dinner at a Korean restaurant. What amazed Niigaki so much was that Sayashi ate and ate in spite of her very thin frame and body. Risa Niigaki went on to say that Sayashi had two servings of rice and drank both cola and orange juice. Niigaki was very happy to see this as Sayashi was only 13 years old at the time and she needed to eat to grow. Sayashi also became addicted to playing with an iPhone. I’m sure that these two meals were feasts that Epicurus would have enjoyed.
