Atsushi Tamura and Namie Amuro spotted on hot date in U.S.

35 Comments

London Boots comedian Atsushi Tamura, 36, and singer Namie Amuro, 32, have been outed by weekly tabloid Josei Seven as the new couple of 2010, by reporting on the pair's top secret trip to Arizona over the New Year.

Josei Seven's issue out Wednesday has photos of the couple, who first met at a party last summer, holding hands and leaning on each other's shoulders, all the while smiling along.

Amuro flew out of Narita airport on Dec 28 on a flight to Los Angeles, and Tamura flew out on Dec 29. The pair were spotted together boarding a domestic flight for Phoenix, and Amuro was seen napping on Tamura's shoulder during the flight.

Tamura and Amuro were later seen checking into an exclusive resort in Sedona, famous for its beautiful array of sandstone formations.

Both of their offices declined to comment on their week-long stay in the U.S.

I'm still in shock over this! It's a combination of Namie finally having a boyfriend after so long, and Atsushi supposedly being a player... and them flying over to the U.S. wow... I'm just wary of this guy, he better not hurt her!

Maybe she could give him some hair tips!

Hair tips. That made me laugh. Maybe the window of the plane he sat next to was open.

can't believe Amuro is still only 32. Feels like she has been in the music industry for a couple of decades already.

You are correct, she has been in the industry for two decades. I can recall seeing her in a kids program singing around 1992, my kid was nuts about her.

Amuro was seen napping

It seems that the definition of "hot date" has been downgraded.

I'll bet they didn't mind getting patted down by TSA on their U.S. flights.

Tamura does have a snazzier hair style than Amuro. Proof that you don't have to be gay to have a top notch hair dresser.

"Tamura does have a snazzier hairstyle than Amuro"

He needs a haircut. And he looks like a horse. Tee hee!

Was she wearing that snazzy hat on the vacation?

She must have a small head if she was able to rest it on Tamura's shoulder. He can't be 50 kilos, soaking wet. And that includes his hair and all the gel/mouse he puts on it.

Does he have a lazy eye?

Ha ha. Umm don't think so. I think he's under the delusion that long hair looks good on a guy.

I am so happy for this couple! It is only January and we have so much great heart warming news for couples in love which is the greatest treasure and emotion of all.

and Amuro was seen napping on Tamura’s shoulder during the flight.

So romantic and cute, it means she trusts him completely and his heart is full of adoration for her.

holding hands and leaning on each other’s shoulders, all the while smiling along.

How adorable and lovely, they are both lucky to find each other, let 2010 is full of love and understanding for them. He is a comedian and will always make her smile and will never let her cry, that is what a real man do.

Where was Amuro's daughter?

Bungalow at 10:32 AM JST - 7th January

. . . and who was reporting all this?

Thankfully Tokudane sent some reporters to America to cover this very important event. Using their best investigative skills, they showed photos of Amuro to random people in the street asking if anyone had seen her. Somewhat worryingly, no-one could recall this. Rest assured, I'm sure they will continue looking into this.

I'm so glad to see Amuro happy again...! All the best!!

Amuro does not have a daughter but a son, like i said how can she date someone as ugly as him, its time she found a guy, and im happy for her, but someone better at least, and this guy had dates many ladies in the past, so he better not hurt namie!!

Where was Amuro's daughter?

Did she end up getting custody back from her ex-husband? I thought after the divorce, the son (not daughter) was given to the ex to raise and I had heard she started fighting for custody several years after the fact. Hadn't heard what happened with that.

[later] Okay, doing a bit more "research" into this, the ex initially had parental custody but Namie had to pay child support. Eventually, parental custody was shifted to her.

So lord only know where her 11 year old son was during this time. Maybe the luggage compartment.

All the best to them. Now, paparazzi and celebrity hacks, back OFF!

LoveUSA -- How in the world can you deduce that "she trusts him completely" and "his heart is full of admiration for her", simply because she had her head on his shoulder? For all you know, that could be as much jet-lag as affection. Or that because he is a comedian that he will "never let her cry"? Huh? I somewhat admire your attempts to create an aura of romance here in a country which desperately needs it. But, please, show some restraint, because there will be at least as many break-up/divorce stories here in 2010 as romantic ones for J-celebs. Trust me on that.

Namie Amuro is making a big mistake!!! Atsushi Tamura is nothing but a "player" looking for the next woman he can get into bed.

Phoenix Arizona at a party is a "hot date"?

That's a fearsome set of chompers the bird's got on her.

So they must have flown economy class? Unlikely I would have thought - more likely to be spotted. Ah what am I saying? Who cares if they are dating? Let them get on with it. It was good to see him bat off "marriage" questions with stuff like "lets get to know each other first...". Must be the first time I've heard an intelligent response to such drivel.

We were just at a resort in Sedona a couple years ago too!

It's still cold this time of year though.
