Fans rejoice as Akiko Kuji “walks around in a fuzzy jacket”!
Freelance announcer Kuji Akiko has been attracting attention with a “photo of a walk in Riverside in a fuzzy jacket” on her Instagram account. The photo was flooded with comments of admiration, such as “Akiko is so cute,” “precious death,” and “I’m so in love with her.”
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 signature program “Kujipan” 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.
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.
She recently released a photo of herself walking in New York.
This is the view I saw during my evening stroll. Manhattan seen beyond the Williamsburg Bridge and the East River” (from Kuji’s Instagram).
Kuji appears to have strolled along Riverside wearing a thick jacket. The sunset is glowing in the photo, but Kuji is shining more beautifully.
Since their marriage, husband Watanabe has been very active in the NBA; his 57.1% success rate on 3-point shots currently ranks first in the NBA.
With her husband flying around the vast U.S. and Kuji traveling back and forth between Japan, it must be difficult for them to spend time together. Watanabe is able to score a lot of points in basketball games from afar. As a husband, I wonder if he is also scoring points well from afar. ……!
