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.

Sayumi Michishige of Morning Musume certainly has had an interesting life so far. In other news related to Morning Musume, singer Sayumi Michishige posted a photo of herself dressed in a pink apron. The photo was posted on her official blog. On the day that the photo was posted, she attended a recording of the program “Chuumon no Ooi Ryourinin.” She said that she had worn that pink apron as a costume during the program. She wrote on her blog: “I wore a pink apron ♪ I did my best at cooking, so please watch ★” And she got many positive responses from fans for that dress. They thought that it was erotic and that Sayumi looked cute in the apron.
It was a few weeks before this event that Sayumi made an appearance in Tokyo for the collaboration between the online game Dragon’s Nest and the pastry company Ginza Cozy Corner. She displayed a custom-made strawberry cake at the event. In January 2011, Michishige along with former Morning Musume singer, author, and restaurant owner Miki Fujimoto hung out with her on the Ichihachi show which is a reality show.
Fujimoto is a regular cast member on the show. Sayumi has also been seen in photo shoots with former member Rika Ishikawa. Ishikawa herself became part of Morning Musume’s 4th generation of members. Note: Sayumi Michishige announced her graduation from the group and left on November 26, 2014 after more than 11 years as a member. She holds the record for the most amount of days spent as a member of Morning Musume surpassing Ai Takahashi and Risa Niigaki.

How did Sayumi Michishige and Miki Fujimoto appear on the Ichihachi Show?
Although Sayumi Michishige is known for her cuteness, she really likes to have fun too. In January 2011, Miki Fujimoto posted on her blog that Sayumi had come on the Ichihachi show. This is a variety show that also has Fujimoto as a regular cast member. Later that day, Fujimoto then 25 posted another blog entry in which she said that Kumicky also known as Kumiko Funayama came onto the Ichihachi show and she showed her child-like and charismatic nature. Fujimoto reported that they got together and had so much fun! This is old news but it just goes to show that members of Morning Musume past and present are more than just pop music idols. Fujimoto used to be my favorite 6th generation member but now that favorite member of mine is Eri Kamei!
Sayumi Michishige’s Mille Feuille photo book is the 9th photo book released by the former member of Morning Musume. The Mille Feuille photo book was released on January 27, 2013. It shows Michishige displaying her excellent bikini body!
She considered herself to be the cutest member of Morning Musume during her tenure with the group. Yes, she is cute but in this photo book, she shows that she can be very sexy as well! I really love some of these pics!
The thing is that while members such as Yuko Nakazawa may be sexier, Sayumi Michishige is cuter than her and I do prefer to see that cute girl kind of look. So these photos are just fine! Michishige was a member of Morning Musume when the group celebrated its 16th anniversary in September 2013. She eventually became the member with the longest tenure in the history of the group surpassing both Risa Niigaki and Ai Takahashi! Michishige was not primarily an Asian bikini model but she showed that she could compete with other Japanese singers in the looks category! Following the release of this photo book, Michishige would release her 10th photo book called Blue Rose.

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!
