Kinoshita showed on her Instagram page an overly bold white camisole. She is wearing denim shorts and sandals, looking very comfortable and refreshing. It was Sunday, May 29, the first “midsummer day” of the year in central Tokyo. Despite the sudden arrival of “heat,” Kinoshita has this smile on her face. It seems that she is happy that summer has arrived.The comment section was full of praise for Kinoshita, who was dressed in light clothing, saying, “refreshing,” “You are so ahead of the summer season,” and “You always look like you are in summer.” As one would expect from a woman who looks good in summer.
Kinoshita, born in Tokyo in 1987 and nicknamed “Yukkina,” was scouted in Shibuya in 2006 and entered the entertainment industry. Her unusual answers on a quiz show made her a breakout hit but she retired from show business in July 2020 due to the tapioca store scandal and other reasons. However, she gradually resumed her entertainment activities by restarting her Instagram, which had once been closed, and being used as a product model for a fashion brand in 2021.
In the fall of 2009, she opened a YouTube channel. While she expressed her desire to make a full-fledged comeback, saying, “I still want to work in front of people,” she stated that she would “never appear on TV” and that she would focus on activities on YouTube.
In her personal life, she married Toshifumi Fujimoto of the comedy duo FUJIWARA in 2010 and they have two daughters. Kinoshita is known for her love of cooking and has had her cooking show, and in 2014 she published “Yukina Mei, a book of dishes that made my husband Toshifumi Fujimoto happy”. In the meantime, Kinoshita divorced Fujimoto on New Year’s Eve 2019. However, there has been no end to love rumors since then. She often posts on Instagram how she seems to be getting along with Hidetoshi Sanko of J2 Omiya Ardija, with whom she is currently in a relationship.
Between all this, she has been posting a series of deal-like posts on Instagram recently. Beauty salons, diet aids, and so on. Kinoshita seems to be busy with something, not the kind of work that makes her reckless on YouTube, but something that uses her power as the Kinoshita brand.
As Kinoshita boldly increases her activities for the summer, we can’t take our eyes off of her any longer.
