On September 1, the 86th birthday of his father, Seiji Ozawa, actor Yukiyoshi Ozawa (47) married NHK announcer Maho Kuwako (34). Ozawa is a handsome man who has been involved with a number of beautiful women, including actresses Shiho Takano (41) and Anne (35). In fact, there was always a beautiful woman beside Ozawa that this magazine had seen.
Just before Christmas in December 2009, Christel Takigawa, who was 32 at the time, was beside Ozawa (third photo). On that day, they met up in the early afternoon, and after watching a ballet in Ueno, they went shopping together at Isetan in Shinjuku. Ozawa paid for all their shopping and escorted them to her beloved Porsche around 9:30 pm. He drove her back to her parents’ apartment.
Of course, we also witnessed him on a date with his new wife, Anna Kuwako. In late January of this year, I found Kuwako Anna being driven home in Ozawa’s BMW (photo above). The moment she entered her apartment building, she smiled and waved at Ozawa in the driver’s seat, and they seemed to be on good terms.
What was behind this rare and popular man’s decision to get married?
“It seems that his father, Seiji, saw Kuwako on a TV program and immediately fell in love with her. I heard that some of his family members said that she had more hospitality than Takigawa-san (laughs). (laughs) I think it’s natural that Ozawa also felt that it was time to move on now that she is approaching 50.
Ozawa has found a companion that his family approves of. I hope they can build a long and happy family.
