Pure white wedding in the middle of the city center
A night in August 2007. In front of a large commercial building in Nihonbashi, Tokyo, Mayuko Wakuda, 33, then anchor of NHK’s “News Watch 9,” was dressed in a pure white wedding dress.
On the day of the wedding, Anna Wakuda was married at a luxury hotel in Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo. The reception ended in the evening, and the after-party was held at a bar lounge in Nihonbashi. Not only at the reception, but also at the after-party, Anna Wakuda showed off her wedding dress. The back of the dress was open, and everyone in attendance exclaimed, “It’s so beautiful! (Wakuda’s acquaintance).
Wakuda’s partner is said to be a “civilian,” but in fact he is a well-known figure in the track and field world.
He was a star athlete in Waseda University’s track and field team. Not only was he famous as one of the most handsome men in the world of ekiden, but he also contributed greatly to Waseda University’s victory in the 2011 Hakone Ekiden (relay race) by competing in a dead heat with Ryuji Kashiwabara of Toyo University, the “God of the Mountain”. After graduating from university, he joined one of the five major trading companies. He met Anna Wakuda through a friend after he entered the workforce,” said an acquaintance of the groom.
The two are the envy of all the elite, and the crowd that attended the ceremony was magnificent.
The groom’s side included a male newscaster from a trading company, a bigwig, and a friend of the groom’s, Mitsunori Uehara, who is also an anchor for “Ohayo Nippon” (Good Morning Japan). The groom’s side was attended by the bigwigs from the trading company and other members of the winning team of the Hakone Ekiden relay race. Yasuyuki Watanabe, who was the coach of the race team when he was a student, was also there.
In front of their partners, the female announcers look happier than they do on TV. Cherish your irreplaceable time!
