Akiko Kuji, a freelance announcer, has been attracting attention for her “too fresh check sleeveless one-piece dress” on her Instagram account. The photo drew admiring comments such as “cute,” “beautiful,” and “healed.”
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.” In April 2019, she became the main anchor on “Mezamashi Saturday. However, after only five years, she gave up on her announcing career and became a freelance announcer in May 2022.
Kuji worked as a model before joining Fuji. While freelance announcers are the standard for station announcers and post-retirement announcers, it seems that her activities are not limited to freelance announcing. 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.
Kuji also announced her marriage to Yuta Watanabe of the NBA’s Toronto Raptors. 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. Comments flooded in congratulating the happy couple. After that, they have been posting photos of their life in the U.S. on their Instagram, which has led to various speculations such as “Have they moved to the U.S. yet? The other day, however, they reported their return to Japan.
The photo that Kuji released this time drew attention was one taken in his hometown of Iwate.
The photo was taken in his hometown of Iwate. On my way home from junior high school” (from Kuji’s Instagram).
Kuji appears in a checked one-piece dress in front of rice paddies. The very nostalgic photo is enchanting. I wonder what Kuji felt in her hometown Iwate, which she returned to after taking the world by storm as a station announcer, and that too on her way to school in her school days. ……
