I’ve already written a few posts about Japanese idol and Morning Musume 17 member Ayumi Ishida of Sendai. Now, it is time to thank her and say that she is one of my role models! Yes indeed that is correct! Ishida who is my favorite member of the 10th generation has been an idol since the name of the group was still called Morning Musume.
She has been a member for all of the name changes the group has had including Morning Musume 15, Morning Musume 16, and Morning Musume 17. Thank you Ayumi Ishida for your smile! Thank you Ayumi Ishida for your friendly personality! Thank you Ayumi Ishida for your contributions to the group since you joined in 2011. Ishida has also been a member of the group being involved in some of the activities the group has done since 2013. I also mention on my main website about how Morning Musume has become a huge pop cultural influence especially in Japan. Ishida has also been a member of Morning Musume for their 59th single called Oh My Wish which was released in August 2015. Ishida who will be 21 years old in January 2018 also has recorded her own version of the single called Wagamama ki no Mama Ai no Joke. The English translation for the song is Selfish Easygoing Jokes of Love. That is one of the best songs in the history of Morning Musume. If you have not heard the song yet, I encourage you to listen to it and you will see how great the song is! Ishida has also been a member of the group when Mizuki Fukumura took over as the group’s leader. She has also seen the debut of the group’s 13th generation. Ishida has been with the group for almost seven years and I am so thankful that she is one of my role models!
With the Thanksgiving holiday now I would like to take a moment to thank Eri Kamei of Morning Musume because she is my favorite member of Morning Musume’s 6th generation and one of my newest role models! Thank you Eri Kamei for what you did for Morning Musume throughout your career. Thank you for giving me a reason to keep going in life in spite of my struggles. Thank you for looking out for your health.
Note: for those of you that do not know, Eri Kamei graduated from Morning Musume in 2010 due to a skin condition called atopic dermatitis.
Thank you Eri Kamei for doing your photo sessions for the photo books MAPLE, Thanks, and your other photo books. You have entertained and excited fans in Japan and throughout the world. I have become one of your biggest fans! Thank you for being who you are! Thank you for your dedication to Morning Musume and the values and principles that the group stands for! I love you Eri Kamei!
Risa Niigaki, la cantante japonesa y miembro del grupo Morning Musume desde 2001 hasta 2012 ahora está trabajando como actriz. En el 9 de junio en 2017, Niigaki fue elegida como la actriz principal en la obra teatral Risako no Gachikoi Haiyuu Numa que se realizará del 5 al 13 del mes de agosto. Niigaki tiene 29 años y fue el miembro de la generación cinco de Morning Musume con Ai Takahashi, Asami Konno, y Makoto Ogawa mi miembro más favorito de esta generación.
Risa Niigaki really shows her cuteness and sexiness in her photo book called Happy Girl released in 2008!
I know that I have been writing about the photo book sessions of Morning Musume members past and present. Here is another set of those photos. This time it is about Risa Niigaki or Gaki-san as she is known by. These Risa Niigaki Happy Girl photo book images are some of the best I’ve seen! Happy Girl is the 4th solo photo book of Niigaki. It was released on April 25, 2008 and it shows Niigaki playing with the snow in winter or relaxing in a bikini! The photo book shows images from two different seasons and that’s a good thing. Happy Girl is the photo book that was released after Isshun in 2007. As usual, I will provide only the best pics of Niigaki! Niigaki spent over ten years as a member of Morning Musume and she was the group’s leader for a short time. She would graduate from the group and hand the leadership duties to Sayumi Michishige. I still think I prefer Niigaki over Michishige even though Sayumi is very cute as well.
It is hard to say who my favorite 5th generation member of Morning Musume is. I can tell you that it is probably a toss-up between the very beautiful Makoto Ogawa or Niigaki. Ogawa is sexier and naturally more beautiful while Risa is cuter. However, Risa might have had her finest moment of her modeling career when she released her 2012 photo book called Ascension. If you have not seen the pics from that photo session, take a look and you will really enjoy them!
No mention of Morning Musume would be complete without mentioning the name Sayumi Michishige. She released her 10th photo book called Blue Rose and this one is a beauty! I will only provide the pics that I think are the best from this session! The photo book was released on October 27, 2013.
The 6th generation idol that served as band leader from May 2012 until November 2014 shows her maturity and sexiness! Michishige, 28, graduated from Morning Musume following a concert in Yamaguchi that summer. Michishige was in Morning Musume from the 6th generation audition until November 2014. Her career spanned 11 years! Here is my favorite photo of the entire session!
It was only a matter of time before I was going to post some photos of Eri Kamei’s 5th solo photo book called MAPLE. The photos of Eri were taken in British Columbia, Canada. The book was released on October 10, 2007 by the publisher Wani Books. Kamei is not the only current or former Morning Musume member to have done a photo book session outside of Japan. Those of you that have been following me on Asian Celebs Hut know that Natsumi Abe did a photo book session in New York City for her 2012 photo book SUBWAY and Fin No Hito in Helsinki, Finland in 2015. Maple is no less impressive and it shows Kamei being surrounded by beautiful nature while showing her impressive bikini body!
I was really impressed with Eri’s bikini body in this set and she was really sexy even back then! I’d assume that she looks just as beautiful now as she did back then.
It actually happened almost right away about two nights ago. I had been having some issues in my life and I needed a way to express my creativity and I also wanted to update all of you about Morning Musume. I started to listen to the high energy song called Kimagure Princess (the group’s 41st major single). There is a solo version of the song that Kamei has done.
Things have started to turn around after that and I have had a sort of fresh start in life. Eri Kamei is one of the people that I consider to be one of my biggest role models. However, that is not the focus of this post. The focus of it is to say that Eri Kamei has become my favorite 6th generation member after it used to be Miki Fujimoto for several years. Not to take anything away from Fujimoto who is very beautiful, talented and she has survived her share of adversity but Eri Kamei has that cute, sweet, quality about her that is easy to love.
When I started this blog back in 2013, Morning Musume had recently celebrated their 16th anniversary as a group and Reina Tanaka had graduated in May 2013. I may consider paying tribute to Kamei by posting photos from one of the photo books during her career with Morning Musume. So there is the reason of how Eri Kamei became my favorite 6th generation member of the group Morning Musume (now known by the name of Morning Musume 17). Stay tuned for some awesome photos of the very cute Eri Kamei!
