In June 2008, Ryoko Hirosue (41) was shopping in the basement grocery section of a department store in Shibuya, Tokyo, where celebrities are often seen due to its proximity to theaters. Dressed in a light blue shirt and white pants, she looked so young that it was hard to believe she was in her 40s.
As soon as she picked up her basket, she started putting greens, bacon, and frozen foods into it at super speed. In the specialty store section, he bought chicken rice ingredient packs and fried chicken. After another short run, he hurried to the wine corner, and then headed for the parking lot.
Twenty-six years have passed since she made her debut in a commercial for “Classial” in 1995. Although Hirosue is now a mother of three, her overwhelming presence and aura has not changed since her days as an idol. Let’s take a look at her youthful charm in these treasured photos.
Getting drunk on Shaoxing wine with her mom’s friends
A little after 10 p.m. on a February night in 2006, a woman wearing a bright yellow skirt walked into a typical Chinese restaurant in Setagaya Ward, Tokyo. It was Hirosue. At the time, Hirosue was appearing in the stage production of “Shanhai Moon. I don’t think that’s why she chose Chinese food, but she was drinking Shaoxing wine with what looked like her friends in the restaurant, which had no private rooms and was filled with locals.

In June this year, Hirosue attended the ambassador inauguration ceremony and new commercial launch of the supplement FUJIMI in Tokyo.

In the commercial, only the upper part of Hirosue’s bare chest is shown, and a jewel-like supplement floats around it. At the press conference, she talked about the commercial.
“If you watch it, you’ll see that there’s nothing in the costume. It doesn’t show in the video at all, but I wore it and filmed it properly. Hahaha.”
