Risa Niigaki, one of my favorite members of Morning Musume and one of its longest serving members has filed for divorce from her husband, actor Yoshikazu Kotani.
Niigaki and Kotani got married in July 2016. However the marriage lasted only one year and six months. The official reason for the split is that both of them were just walking on different paths in life and they decided that the best choice was for them to part ways. Niigaki and Kotani met each other in 2013 when they both starred in the play called Zettai Kareshi. They would start dating a year later. I heard about this story two weeks ago. I wish the best of luck to Niigaki who will turn 30 in October. I hope that she will grow stronger as a result of this setback. Niigaki had the record for the most number of days served in Morning Musume until Sayumi Michishige surpassed her. Niiigaki was a member of Morning Musume from 2001 through 2012.
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!
I have posted some awesome Risa Niigaki photos from her 2007 photo book called Isshun on my magazine style page Asian Celebs Hut. The photos were taken in Okinawa and show the former Morning Musume idol singer running along the beach or just posing in a few different kinds of bikinis! And she is also seen running around in Okinawa. But the bikini shots of Niigaki are the best! In 2012, Niigaki released the photo book Ascension just before she graduated from Morning Musume. Here is one amazing photo of Niigaki from that photo session which will amaze you!
Risa Niigaki is seen in the photo book Ascension as she is in a bikini on the island of Okinawa.
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!
