In the evening of June 2008, actress Ryoko Hirosue (41) was shopping in the basement of a department store in Shibuya, Tokyo, where many theaters are located. She was dressed in a light blue shirt and white pants, looking very young.
As soon as she picked up a basket, she put greens, bacon, and frozen foods into the basket at super speed. In the specialty store section, she bought chicken rice ingredient packs and fried chicken. After another short run to the wine section, she headed for the parking lot.
“The mother of three children, Ms. Hirosue has been working tirelessly. When she was an idol in her teens, she confessed that she once thought of retiring from the entertainment industry because of the pressure. Now she seems to have settled down and is doing her housework well.

“The “miracle face” of the “miracle 50-year-old.
On a night in March 2008, a woman wearing a trench coat came pushing a cart into the parking lot of a department store in Ebisu, which is frequented by celebrities. It was Yuriko Ishida, 51.
She is known as the “miracle 50-year-old,” and although she was dressed modestly, with almost no makeup and her hair tied back in a single bun, she had a lovely air about her. In the cart was a large amount of pet supplies. She had loaded cat litter and other supplies through the back door of her car.
“Ishida lives with four shelter cats and a golden retriever. Ishida’s Instagram is very popular as it gives a glimpse into her stylish lifestyle and fashion. She also has an Instagram dedicated to her pets.
The cute shots of her dog and cat are uploaded along with Ishida’s heartwarming writings, and are popular for their healing power. The site has nearly 960,000 followers,” says the editor of a women’s magazine.
A paper bag from a department store that looks heavy in both hands
It’s 7 p.m. in January 2007. I spotted Shoko Nakagawa (36), aka Shokotan, at a long-established department store in Shinjuku crowded with shoppers. Perhaps she was enjoying shopping on her way home from work, but with a heavy paper bag in both hands, Shokotan went to the pickup truck.
Next, she stopped by a very common supermarket near her home. Pushing her cart around the store, she bought over 6000 yen worth of vegetables and meat.
Shokotan has not been heard of recently. I’d love to see her with her boyfriend!
