The members of “The Drifters” who enjoyed national popularity. Except for Cha Kato and Boo Takagi (two on the right), all the other members have already passed away…

Toshio Ishikawa, entertainment reporter, tells us what happened behind the scenes in the entertainment industry: ……

Emergency hospitalization due to a traffic accident. The funeral service was held for Mr. Ken Nakamoto of “The Drifters,” who passed away at the age of 81 due to an acute subdural hemorrhage. About 30 people attended the funeral, including Cha Kato, Boo Takagi, and Ken Shimura’s (70 years old) brother.

After the funeral service was completed without delay, a hearse carrying the corpse departed from the funeral home. As the hearse was heading to the funeral hall to cremate the body, the attendees and reporters witnessed a bizarre scene.

The eldest son of the ex-wife was sitting in the front passenger seat of the hearse, holding the family tablet. Then, one or two minutes after the hearse departed, his wife, Junka Mishiro, a singer and 27 years younger than him, came out of the funeral home carrying a portrait of her deceased husband.

The figure chased after the hearse in a cab as if in a panic. An attendee at the scene said

I felt a distance between the sons of his ex-wife and Ms. Junka, no matter how I thought about it. Mr. Nakamoto’s smile as he held the guitar in his portrait seemed sad for some reason.

He expressed. The couple had lived in Meguro Ward, but Junka had left their home.

“I heard that Junka had left the house without Ms. Nakamoto.

It was before last summer when I heard that Junka had left Ms. Nakamoto at their house.

I wondered what had happened to them, even though they were such good friends.

I wondered what had happened.

The first time I saw the two of them together was in front of the studio of “Katsushika FM. Ms. Nakamoto was there as an escort for Junka, who had a singing program.

He was waiting for her to finish recording, being careful of his surroundings. Shortly thereafter, the two were married.

But given that they were not registered, there may have been someone who was against the marriage. But at the time, their marriage was also a big topic of conversation, as Cha Kato had married Ayana, a celebrity 45 years younger than him, a year before Ms. Nakamoto.

The “All Together in This Town!” program, which started on “Rainbow Town FM” after Katsushika FM was a program in which the couple performed together.

The time Mr. Nakamoto was hit by a car was on a road near the curry store that Junka had started in Yokohama. It was 9:10 a.m., and he was probably on his way to visit her restaurant.

I also heard a rumor that she “went there every day.”

I also heard a rumor that she “used to go there every day.

The show “8 O’clock! All Together” (TBS), which had the whole of Japan laughing, and at one time had a viewership rating of over 50%. (TBS), which at one time had a viewership rating of over 50%, lost its leader, Chosuke Ikariya, to lymphatic cancer in 2004, and lost Ken Shimura to coronary heart disease in 2008. One of the former members, Inoue Arai, also died of liver failure in 2000. Cha Kato and Boo Takagi are now the only members of Drifting.

When I heard that Nakamoto had been in an accident, my mind went blank. If it had been normal, we would have been working together by now… I was just surprised at the sudden and untimely parting,” said Kato.

said Cha Kato. Boo Takagi said, “We have been together for over 60 years now.

We have been together for more than 60 years. That’s longer than my family. I am really sad and frustrated. (omission) Mr. Chou, Mr. Arai, Mr. Shimura, and his mother, who Nakamoto said he wanted to see the most, are over there. Please rest in peace.

He commented, “Please rest in peace.

The information that she had been “abandoned” may have been untrue, as she visited Junka, who had opened a curry restaurant in Yokohama, every day. But what did the atmosphere at the funeral home tell us? I wonder if I’m being too paranoid….gosh.
