Thank you so much for your many, many congratulatory comments. It made me feel very warm. I look forward to working with you in the future.”

Akiko Kuji, a freelance announcer who recently announced her marriage to Yuta Watanabe of the NBA’s Toronto Raptors, has been creating a buzz on her Instagram account, expressing her gratitude for the congratulatory comments.

Kuji was born in Iwate Prefecture in 1994. After graduating from Aoyama Gakuin University, she joined Fuji Television in 2017, where she made her mark in her first year, taking charge of the signature program “Kujipan.” From April 2019, she served as the main anchor for “Mezamashi Saturday.” However, after only five years, she gave up on her announcing career and became a freelance announcer in May 2021.

Kuji appeared at the fashion and music event “Rakuten Girls Award 2022 SPRING/SUMMER” held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba on May 14, and served as MC. Her first job after leaving Fuji Television drew a lot of attention. Kuji was able to MC without a hitch, engaging in light-hearted talk with Ryota Yamasato of Nankai Candies, Chocolate Planet, and creator Aya Nakamachi, who also MC’d. Before joining Fuji, Kuji worked as a model.

Kuji worked as a model before joining Fuji. While freelance announcing is a standard career for retired station announcers, Kuji’s activities do not seem to be limited to freelance announcing alone. Her activities as a model and TV personality are also highly anticipated. She also has 460,000 followers on Instagram and is expected to be active as an influencer.

In the midst of all this, she suddenly announced her marriage to Watanabe. In her wedding report post, she also showed a photo of the two of them huddled together in the middle of a large basketball court together. The two looked so happy together that congratulatory comments poured in. Kuji was so moved by this that he posted a thank-you note to his fans.

In the thank-you post, Kuji showed how he was enjoying a Raptors game. It must be a proud moment for her husband to be playing in the world’s premier basketball league. However, Kuji is also a very popular announcer in Japan. Fans must be overjoyed at the birth of this dream couple of Japanese and American stars…!
