Yuriko Yoshitaka (35) plays the leading role of Murasaki Shikibu in the 2024 NHK historical drama “Hikaru Kimi e”. The man who supports her behind the scenes is her handsome boyfriend who looks like Matsuya Onoe. It was reported in mid-June 2023 that the two were in a serious relationship. In September 2022, we saw them for the first time, in October 2022, and in mid-May 2023, we saw them three times. Yoshitaka always wore a rough style and looked relaxed.” We recount the details based on an article distributed on June 13, 2023 (ages and titles in the article are current at the time of publication).

The drinking session going on in the restaurant had already lasted over five hours, but the liquor orders were far from over–they were still going strong.

On a night in mid-May 2023, actress Yuriko Yoshitaka (34) was seen at an izakaya in Nishiazabu (Minato Ward), Tokyo. After finishing work in the evening, Yoshitaka joined several friends at the izakaya. The party was lively, and it was around 10:30 pm when Yoshitaka left the restaurant. A tall, stout man was standing next to him. He was a handsome man with clear-cut eyes and nose, reminiscent of the actor Matsuya Onoe. After parting with their friends, the two disappeared into the night in an intimate atmosphere.


Yoshitaka will play the leading role for the first time in the NHK historical drama “Hikaru Kimi e” in 2024. This handsome man, Mr. A, is behind the scenes supporting Yoshitaka’s breakthrough. An acquaintance of Yoshitaka’s reveals, 

“Mr. A is a company employee. They met through a mutual acquaintance and started dating about a year ago. Yoshitaka trusts Mr. A, who is close in age and very patient.”

This is not the first time the two were spotted by this magazine. In late September 2022, the two were spotted enjoying sushi in Roppongi (Minato Ward). They were both dressed casually. They enjoyed dinner until after 9 p.m., and then returned to Yoshitaka’s apartment. Also in early October 2022, the two were seen enjoying a machuka in Roppongi.


“I think their relationship is officially approved by the office. Whenever she goes out with Mr. A, she is often picked up and dropped off in the office’s car. It seems that sometimes they have dinner together with the office staff with whom they are good friends.”

When we confirmed the fact of their relationship with Yoshitaka’s office, they replied, “We leave her private life to her.”

Changes that have occurred in her views on love

Yoshitaka has had affairs with famous musicians in the past. In 2013, she was reportedly romantically involved with Yojiro Noda, 37, the vocalist of “Radwimps,” and in 2016, this magazine covered her trip to Bali with Tadayoshi Okura, 38, of Kanjani Eight.


“Yoshitaka is the type of person who turns love into power. When she was dating Mr. Noda, she was selected to be the heroine in the morning drama “Hanako to Anne” (NHK), for which she received high acclaim. During her relationship with Ms. Okura, she also had many representative works such as “Tokyo Tarareba Musume” (NTV). She is the type of person who really gets into her roles, so her mentality must have had a big impact on her.”

In a past interview with “The Television Monthly,” Yoshitaka said, “I am attracted to people who have experiences that I don’t have and people who have a sense of humor.” However, unlike the two mentioned above, Mr. A is a company employee working for a general company. What was behind the change in her views on love?


She says, “Until now, I used to act the part of Yuriko Yoshitaka even in my private life. When I met people, I would turn on a switch to act cheerful and openhearted. But now that I’m in my 30s, I’ve decided to work on only one drama series and one movie a year, and I’ve come to value my private life more. As I spent more time being myself, I guess I became attracted to people who accepted that aspect of me. She was always more of an introvert and an indoor person.”

The presence of Mr. A, who can reveal her true self, has also had a positive impact on her acting career.

“Yoshitaka’s weapon is her ability to play a wide range of roles, from light-hearted characters to darker ones. In “Saiai” (TBS) broadcast in 2021, she won the Best Actress Award in the “Tokyo Drama Award 2022″ for her high acting ability. I am sure that she will show us a Murasaki Shikibu that no one has ever seen before in her first Taiga drama,” said media culture critic Hiroyoshi Usui.

Yoshitaka has been filming the drama on location at Heian Shrine in Kyoto since May 28, 2023. After completing her first attempt at starring in a major TV drama, she may be ready to move on to the next step.

She said, “My relationship with Mr. A has been acknowledged by my office and I have already introduced it to my friends.” Of course, I think she has marriage in mind. After the film is cranked up, they may even make it to the finish line.

Since her debut in 2006, she has impressed people with her numerous movies and dramas. Next, I hope she will find her own happiness.

Possibility of marriage at the end of a major drama.

After this magazine’s report, “NEWS POST SEVEN” on Mr. A’s background,

“He is the son of the founding family of a jewelry brand. He is currently working for a major foreign financial institution and is a super businessman with an annual income of no less than 50 million yen. He is an elite with a background too brilliant to be called an ordinary man.”

The report said. At the end of April 2023, they took a trip to Hokkaido, where Yoshitaka planned a private trip while he appeared for the first pitch of a professional baseball game. The report says that they enjoyed local sushi, golf, and horseback riding.


Yoshitaka is currently in the midst of filming a major TV drama. On December 11, 2023, Yoshitaka appeared at a press conference in Tokyo,

She said, “I have learned calligraphy, horseback riding, and dancing, which I have not been exposed to. I am learning more now than ever before in my life.”

“I have a long way to go, but I’m going to finish it.” she said enthusiastically. A senior executive at a major entertainment agency said,

“Until the shooting of the Taiga drama is over, most of her life will be in Kyoto, so she may not be able to see him. However, the two are officially approved by the office and are probably considering marriage, so there is a good chance that they will announce their marriage at the end of the shooting of the drama.”

He also gives the firm’s assurance that the drama will be a success. First of all, we wish them good luck with the drama.

Last September, we found them enjoying a sushi date. After dinner, they headed to a nearby coin-operated parking lot, got into a pickup truck, and disappeared to Yoshitaka’s home.
In October of last year, the three of them went out to dinner with office staff. On that day, they were dressed in sweatshirts, both top and bottom.
