A relaxing train trip in the spring scenery. What kind of celebrity would you like to go with? The Railway Trend Research Institute, which conducts research and surveys on railroads, conducted an online survey on March 5-6, 2022, on “celebrities with whom you would like to enjoy a train trip” and obtained responses from 285 men and women from all over Japan. This time, we introduce the female celebrity section.

Comedian Asako Ito came in first place. Ito got her breakthrough with her material in which she plays the role of Asakura Minami, the heroine of the manga “Touch. With her cheerful and uninhibited character, she has been on location all over the world for “Sekai no Hatto de Itte Q! (NTV). He has also traveled extensively in Japan, including a popular travel show in which he teamed up with actress Rino Katase.
