Free announcer Akiko Kuji has been attracting attention for her “too bold see-through shirt” on her Instagram account.
Kuji was born in Iwate Prefecture in 1994. After graduating from Aoyama Gakuin University, she joined Fuji Television in 2017, where she made her mark in her first year, taking charge of the signature program “Kuji Pan.” From April 2019, she served as the main anchor on “Mezamashi Saturday.” However, after only five years, she gave up on her announcing career and became a freelance announcer in May 2021.
Kuji worked as a model before joining Fuji. Although freelance announcers are the standard after leaving Fuji, Kuji’s activities are not limited to being a freelance announcer. Her activities as a model and TV personality are also highly anticipated. She also has 460,000 followers on Instagram and is expected to be active as an influencer.
In the midst of all this, Kuji released information about the programs she will appear in on her Instagram.
She will be appearing on NTV’s “Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Sanma Goten: Super Luxury Guests Dream Together, Sanma ni Honne ga Bakudan Matsuri (Festival of Exploding True Feelings for Sanma). I am joined by former Fuji Television senior members Akiko Yagi and Moemi Kushiro. Please check it out” (from Kuji’s Instagram).
Kuji also announced her marriage to NBA player Yuta Watanabe in May of this year. Since the announcement, Kuji has been busy traveling back and forth between Los Angeles, where her husband trains, New York, the home of his new team, and Tokyo. When she is in the U.S., she goes shopping, cooks home-cooked meals, and trains with her husband, and she posts happy scenes of her newlywed life on Instagram, making her fans feel relaxed. When she is in Japan, she is basically working, appearing on shows and events like this one.
Husband Watanabe has also made the Brooklyn Nets’ opening day roster, and both husband and wife have been on a roll since the announcement of their marriage. They are now “looking for a house” in New York.
We can’t take our eyes off Kuji more and more ……!
