Here is a redo of the photo session of Risa Niigaki’s “Isshun Photo book.” Isshun was one of her earliest photo book releases having been released on May 27, 2007 when she was just 18 years old! This photo book features the former Morning Musume member running around the beach as she poses in a few different kind of bikinis!
Isshun is the photo book before Happy Girl because Happy Girl was released in 2008. On October 20, 2018, Risa Niigaki celebrated her 30th birthday and she was one of the longest serving members of Morning Musume before Sayumi Michishige surpassed her and Ai Takahashi for the most number of days served as a member of Morning Musume in 2014. Sayumi Michishige is very cute but for me, Risa Niigaki is both cute and she is sexier than Sayumi as the rest of these awesome pics will show!
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.
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!
It is now 2015 and the girl group once known by Morning Musume is now known by the name of Morning Musume 15. The group was known as Morning Musume 14 in 2014 and still had Sayumi Michishige as their band leader. But now, Michishige has graduated from the group and young Mizuki Fukumura of Tokyo has taken over as band leader. Previous members that have been the group’s leader include Yuko Nakazawa and Risa Niigaki. Nakazawa was the first member of Morning Musume when the group started performing in 1997. She was 24 when the first generation of members were introduced. Nakazawa who is now 41 got married on April 1, 2012. Yuko Nakazawa is a Japanese idol singer and movie actress that looks very beautiful in a bikini!
That famous first generation had four other members. These members were Kaori Iida, Aya Ishiguro, Asuka Fukuda, and Natsumi Abe. The group has come a long way since then having released 14 full length albums. Morning Musume has been surpassed in popularity by another Japanese girl group called AKB48. But they are still active and if the future is any indication, the group will still keep performing. Congratulations to Morning Musume 15 for having made it through three separate decades! The group’s latest album is called 14 Sho: The Message. It has the songs TIKI BUN and Password is 0.
Former Morning Musume member Maki Goto has recently revealed details regarding her weight on her blog. She has been absent from entertainment related activities for over 2.5 years and she is now back. Of all the former Morning Musume members that I have written about, Maki Goto is not one of them. On a July 2nd blog entry, Goto wrote that she weighs 43 kilograms or 94.6 pounds. Goto also said that it would be best if she could keep it at this range. Choreographer Mayumi Natsu had very nice things to say about Goto, saying that her abilities are #1 among Morning Musume and AKB48 members. Goto was very joyful upon hearing these words and she described herself as a fortunate person. She values every piece of her happiness.
As of the beginning of this year, Morning Musume now goes by the name of Morning Musume 14. The name change was made by the group’s producer TSUNKU. The group has been making news especially recently. It was revealed that Sayumi Michishige who has been with the group since 2003 announced her decision to graduate from the group following a concert that will take place this fall. There were discussions between Michishige, her producer, and her agency about the time to graduate and the fall concert was determined to be the best time for her to do so. Maki Goto was part of Morning Musume’s 3rd generation and she is the only member of that generation. Preceding Goto was the 2nd generation of members which included the lovely Kei Yasuda. And even before this generation was the first generation which includes Yuko Nakazawa who began her career with the group in 1997 at the age of 24.
Goto is not the only former Morning Musume member to announce a return to the entertainment industry. Former member Ai Kago returned to the entertainment industry after forming a three member unit called Girls Beat!! And Asuka Fukuda also made her return after a long absence as well. Fukuda is now a member of the group called Peace$tone, a group that she formed back in 2011. Following Goto’s tenure with Morning Muusme came the fourth generation of members which included the mentioned Ai Kago, Nozomi Tsuji, and Rika Ishikawa who made news when she met and talked to the very cute Yuki Kashiwagi of AKB48. After that generation came the fifth generation with members Ai Takahashi, Risa Niigaki, Asami Konno, and Makoto Ogawa. Takahashi of course has also done work as a bikini model, appearing in FLASH Magazine back in 2011 showing her great bikini body! It was on May 27, 2010 that Takahashi attended a release event for her photo book called Katachi prior to her graduation from Morning Musume. Maki Goto joined Morning Musume back in 1999 as a young 13 year-old. She would remain with the group until 2002 and then she would “graduate” from the group to pursue a solo career. Atsuko Maeda of AKB48 also graduated to pursue a solo singing career of her own as well as to focus on becoming an actress.
