Ascension is the last photo book released by Risa Niigaki when she was still a member of Morning Musume. These bikini pics of the former Morning Musume babe are absolutely awesome! I know that we are in 2017 and these photos were taken in 2012 but Risa is not only a person that is really cute but she shows that she can be sexy as well!
The photos for Ascension were taken on the island of Okinawa. The photo book was released on April 27, 2012. Risa Niigaki then graduated from Morning Musume on May 18, 2012 after being with the group for more than 10 years.
And now here is perhaps the best photo of the entire set!
Niigaki married actor Yoshikazu Kotani on July 11, 2016. She is one of several former Morning Musume members to get married. Of all the members that have gotten married, Mari Yaguchi, Ai Kago, and Sayaka Ichii have divorced. However, Sayaka Ichii got married for a second time in August 2012 to a 37 year-old hairdresser. I hope that Niigaki will have a very happy marriage. Risa has been involved in some very interesting moments in her life!
