I apologize for the worry I have caused you for a long time. It’s only for a short while, but my health is getting better, so I thought I would write to you now.
On August 30, singer Akina Nakamori (57) updated her Twitter page. Nakamori published the letter on Twitter. It has been 40 years since I made my debut. I have been dealing with my health condition every day in order to do some kind of activity for the 40th anniversary of my debut,” she wrote.
Nakamori also wrote, “Since announcing my hiatus in October 2010, I had been having a hard time getting back on track. In 2004 and 2005, he held dinner shows, but has not been seen in public since then.
According to public information, Akina is suffering from shingles. Although she has released singles and cover albums since her 10-year hiatus, she is said to be so mentally driven that she is unable to sing in public. It is said that only a very limited number of people are able to see him in person.
She made her debut in May 1982 with “Slow Motion” and her second single “Shojo A” became a smash hit, selling approximately 400,000 copies. Since then, she has become one of Japan’s leading female artists with a series of great songs such as “North Wing,” “Tears Are Not Decorations,” and “Mi Amore. However, her life was full of ups and downs. Let us look back on her turbulent life with some of her treasured photos.

It was January 1986 when “FRIDAY” caught a secret date in Hawaii between Akihiko Kondo, a celebrity at the height of his popularity at the time, and Akina. Kondo arrived in Hawaii via Florida and headed for a luxury hotel near Waikiki Beach. At the hotel, a woman was waiting for Kondo’s arrival.
They had separate rooms and were on high alert. They were separated during the day, but met up at night and enjoyed a top-secret date for six days and five nights,” said a veteran entertainment journalist who knew about their relationship at the time.
Their relationship did not last long: in July 1989, Akina attempted suicide in her apartment at Kondo’s apartment. Six months later, on New Year’s Eve, Akina held an emergency press conference to apologize for her selfish behavior. Kondo was present at the press conference and said he was “happy to assist” Akina in her comeback.
Since then, Akina will take a break from her public activities for about a year. She continued to record in the U.S. and other countries and vigorously released albums and music videos, but on the other hand, she was often seen getting drunk in Roppongi and other places”.
In the 1990s, Akina expanded her activities as an actress, starring in the drama “Bad Girl A/B” (Fuji Television). However, scandals followed, including the publication of a book by a music director exposing Akina’s history with men, and reports of her breakup with her manager, with whom she was rumored to be in a relationship. Gradually, she began to lose her luster.
In a fan club bulletin in August 2006, Akina wrote I really miss you…I really miss you all…but…I don’t know if I can. Fans were concerned that Akina might not be able to continue her music career.

The day when Akina’s beautiful voice can be heard live again is not far off. Her fans are eagerly awaiting the day when they will be able to see Akina back in good health.
