Japanese idol Sayaka Ichii Turns 35 and she is still active and kicking butt! This Funabashi, Japan native and occasional swimsuit model was once my favorite second generation member of Morning Musume! Ichii has gone through a divorce and she had to raise two daughters by herself after that divorce. She is a woman with a very strong character and she has survived and returned to the entertainment industry. At 35, Ichii is a celebrity that has many years left ahead of her. Note: for those of you that want to read my biography about Sayaka Ichii, you can do so on my main magazine style website Asian Celebs Hut.
From left to right: Mari Yaguchi, Sayaka Ichii and Kei Yasuda.
Japanese idol Sayaka ichii retired from the music business in 2003 and disbanded the group called Ichii Sayaka in Cubic Cross. The group is known by its shorter name CUBIC CROSS. Ichii would marry the guitarist of the band Naoki Yoshizawa in May 2004. She would give birth to her first daughter in August 2004. Ichii would not return to the music business until 2009 when she joined Ranves Management Agency.
Sayaka Ichii who is a native of the city of Funabashi and Chiba Prefecture made her debut back in 1998 as part of Morning Musume’s 2nd generation with Mari Yaguchi and Kei Yasuda. Kei Yasuda, now 38, was once my favorite member of the 2nd generation. I have written earlier about how beautiful Kei Yasuda is. Yasuda released a photo book called Kei in 2002. The debut single for Japanese idol Sayaka Ichii came when she sang in the song Summer Night Town.
Ichii would sing in several other songs including Daite Hold On Me! Ichii would also take part in the singles Furusato and LOVE Machine. LOVE Machine would go on to sell 1,646,630 copies and the song became a #1 hit single in Japan. Furusato is one of the songs where former members Ai Takahashi and Risa Niigaki sang their own versions. Ichii graduated from Morning Musume in May 2000. The reason given for her graduation was because she wanted to continue her education. Japanese idol Sayaka Ichii is one of my favorite Morning Musume members and always will be! Happy Birthday Sayaka!
I absolutely adore so many of these current and former members of Morning Musume and Sayaka Ichii is definitely on my list of the Top 5 Morning Musume members. I may do a post on my top 5 Morning Musume members in the future, but for now if I had to create a list of my top 5 here they are:
Japanese idol singer Ayumi Ishida is the next Morning Musume member that has celebrated her birthday. She is the next current or former member to celebrate a birthday. My favorite Morning Musume member has turned 22 on January 7, 2019!
Ayumi Ishida of Morning Musume 19 is dressed in a school uniform.
Morning Musume is now going to do their activities under the name Morning Musume 19. The group was known as Morning Musume 16 in 2016 and Morning Musume 15 in 2015. For this Sendai, Japan native, this is a wonderful and should be a very happy occasion.
In the music side of her career, Ishida has been a member when the group announced in July 2015 that they would release their 59th single called Oh My Wish! On August 19, 2015, the single Oh My Wish! / Sukatto My Heart / Ima Sugu Tobikomu Yuuki. Ishida performed a version of the song Wagamama ki no Mama Ai no Joke which is one of the group’s finest songs. It has also been during the career of Ishida that Erina Ikuta became sub-leader along with Haruna Iikubo. Congratulations to the lovely Ayumi Ishida of Sendai, Japan!
“17SAI” is the third photo book released by now former member of Morning MusumeEri Kamei and it is a really good one! She is definitely now my favorite 6th generation member even though my favorite one used to be Miki Fujimoto. I already said that my 2 favorite Morning Musume members are Risa Niigaki and Ayumi Ishida but Eri Kamei will have to be a very close 3rd favorite member past or present. Without further ado, let us get started with this amazing photo book “17SAI” shall we?
The photo book was released when Eri was just 17 but even back then, she showed that she could be charming and beautiful at the same time! Eri retired from Morning Musume in 2010 due to experiencing atopic dermatitis but the work that she did as a member of the group will always be remembered. After “17SAI” Eri released the photo book Love-Hello! Kamei Eri in Phuket. I have the set of photos for her last photo book as a member of Morning Musume called Thanks! That one has Eri looking her most elegant and mature because she is in a beautiful wedding style dress! Here is the video of the making of “17SAI.” Enjoy! Eri also released a photo book while she was in British Columbia, Canada called Maple which was released in 2007. What follows here are only the best photos of 17SAI!
Eri Kamei just waiting to relax.
Smile for the camera Eri Kamei! You look great!!
Eri Kamei of Morning Musume looking absolutely gorgeous!!
This photo of Eri Kamei is taken from three different angles.
“Kagayaki” Shine is the 3rd solo photo book by now leader of Morning Musume 19Mizuki Fukumura. I have known about this photo book for a while and I consider it one of her best releases in her career. Kagayaki was published by Odyssey Books on December 5, 2015. The photos for this book were taken in three locations. They are Kanagawa, Ishikawa, and Shizuoka Prefecture. I think that this book starts to show the mature and grown up side of Fukumura. Let’s get started with “Kagayaki” shall we? I think she looks awesome in this photo session!
Just relaxing Mizuki? What a pose this is!
For the last photo of this session for the time being, it would not be enough if we did not show this side of Fukumura! Her figure is simply amazing and she was only 19 years old here!
A release event for the book was held on December 18, 2015 at Fukuya Shoten in Shinjuku.
I think that while Ayumi Ishida is cuter, Fukumura has a better bikini body but at this point, both of these Morning Musume 18 members deserve consideration for the two best looking girls in the group!
For those of you that enjoyed the first part of Sayumi Michishige’s Mille Feuille Photo Book, I am including part 2 of that photo session here! I am not wasting any time and getting right to this awesome second set of pics! You may even enjoy this second part more than the first!

Happy New Year everyone! Coming soon are going to be “Dream Photo Book Pics” from Sayumi Michishige! I wrote about her 12th solo photo book Dream before it came out on July 13, 2018. The book’s photos were taken in Yamanashi, Japan and in Los Angeles. Dream is Sayumi’s first photo book in over 4 years and I was just amazed even looking at them! She is mature while at the same time showing that she can be sexy as well! For now, here is just a preview of the photo book’s cover.
