Fans Rejoice as Akiko Kuji “Enjoys New York in a Black Hoodie”!
Free announcer Akiko Kuji has been attracting a lot of attention after she revealed herself “in a black hoodie” on her Instagram account. She was inundated with comments praising her, such as, “She’s cute,” “She’s beautiful,” and “She has a nice smile.”

Kuji was born in Iwate Prefecture in 1994. After graduating from Aoyama Gakuin University, she joined Fuji Television in 2017, where she emerged in her first year as the anchor of the flagship program “Kuji Pan” and became the main anchor of “Mezamashi Saturday” in April 2019. However, after only five years, she gave up on her announcing career and became a freelance announcer in May 2022.
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 May of this year, Kuji announced her marriage to NBA player Yuta Watanabe. Since the announcement, Kuji has been busy traveling back and forth between Los Angeles, where her husband trained, New York, 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, posting joyful scenes of her newlywed life on Instagram to make her fans feel relaxed. When she is in Japan, she is basically working, appearing on programs and events like this one.
In the meantime, her husband Watanabe has also made the Brooklyn Nets’ opening day roster, and in response to this, he publicly announced that he was “looking for a home” in New York.
From this post, it seems that the two began house hunting immediately. Kuji shared a photo of a restaurant they stopped by after house hunting. Kuji is relaxing on the terrace with One World Trade Center in the background, wearing a black hoodie and black pants. The photos show that she is enjoying her time in New York.
