Around 6:00 pm in late March, a couple stood out in Omotesando, Tokyo, wearing flashy fashions. The one wearing shiny pink shorts was celebrity Ryo Kato (33), and the woman with blond hair and sunglasses was singer Kyary Pamyu Pamyu (30).
The main street was jammed with cars, and it was hard to catch a cab. However, they seemed to enjoy even this situation and looked at each other and laughed every time a cab passed by, ignoring their raised hands.
On the ring finger of Sonny Kyari’s left hand, a gold ring sparkles. She had just announced her marriage to actor Shono Hayama (27) on her SNS on March 21. Their relationship was first revealed in August 2008 in a report in this magazine.
The couple met through an acquaintance, and after five years of dating, they reached the goal. Kyary said on a radio program that she was surprised by the sudden marriage.
Why was Kyary, such a newlywed, with Kato?
The two are so close that they meet three times a week at the most. Kato is a fan of Kyary’s, and that’s how their friendship began. Kato says that the time he spends with Kyary is like a women’s party.
On that day, did they report on their happiness as newlyweds? After that, the two gave up, called for a car, and headed home. Needless to say, Kyary was escorted by Kato back to Hayama’s waiting apartment.
