Gravure idol Nozomi Fujikawa takes kimono off at press event for upcoming movie

43 Comments

Gravure idol Nozomi Fujikawa, 27, pleased reporters at a press event held in Higashi Shimbashi on Monday when she lowered her kimono to her hips, covering her breasts with her other hand.

The event was held before a special preview of her upcoming film “Onna Goroshi Abura no Jigoku” - known as “Murder at the Oil Store” in English. It is Fujikawa’s first time to play the leading lady in a movie and it also marks her return to the entertainment world after a six-year absence. The movie, set in 18th century Japan, centers on the life and murder of the bored wife of a wealthy Osaka oil merchant.

When Fujikawa lowered her kimono for the press, those in attendance voiced their approval with her 81-58-84 figure. She roused the crowd when she said: “I’m not wearing anything under this. I came without any underwear.”

She also commented on the filming of the nude scenes in the movie, saying: “Sometimes the director would bark at me, and I would cry. But I realized I’m a bit masochistic, so I’ve grown as a result of this movie.”

"Onna Goroshi Abura no Jigoku” opens in cinemas on Saturday.

The beauty of the human body will not be appreciated by certain prudish posters.

Wow, a new low, even for Japan -- stripping at a press event. Sure she's great looking, but come on. Does every promotion need to pander to the lowest common denominator? "I came without any underwear"? Please.

She should have brought lots of underwear with her, signed them, and hand them out to the crowd.

Just an observation, but 81cm. is only like 32 inches. Anywhere else in the world and she'd have to take off the whole outfit to get publicity given that rather modest breast size. What has she been doing the last six years? Certainly not working out.

She's cute... but looks more like 35 than 27...

I don't know about you guys, but this should be the quote of the day! She's FIT!

Nice skin. And so much of it.

But "gravure idol" is not English; never was, never will be.

In the name of promoting a movie what can we have next from Jpeople? Who said that a naked woman's body is not beautiful? It is not about that. But a cheap way of promoting an event.

Sounds like the movie has nothing else going for it, if she goes directly to the ultimate promotion tool.

She needs a good feed if anything. Where`s the nearest tabehodai?

Holy moly! I hope this starts a new trend with gravure idols at press events! (Aki Hoshino if you're out there...)

How did I know that you guys would be shredding over here? Sex sells, and that's the way it is.

She's a beautiful woman, but I'm one that likes a little more meat on his bones.

I knew this pic was going to get a lot of comments but still, I wouldn't toss her off the tatami for eating crackers, would you?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Here in the U.S. she would be on the cover of all the tabloids with the headlines screaming, "Nozomi Fujikawa In Deadly Dance With Anorexia!" and they would use this picture to prove it (and sell more papers).

That said, I don't think she's really as gaunt as she appears in this photo. The angle of the wrist of the hand holding her kimono, the sharp relief of the tendon in her neck when she turns her head far to the left, and the almost edge-on" pose in relation to the camera give the appearance of being too thin, but the face itself does NOT look gaunt. I think a photo from a different angle (and I'm sure there must be SOME out there seeing as this was a press event) would show her to be a bit healthier than this photo does.

This is great, I hope it starts a trend of all actresses stripping at press events for their new movie. Well, the good looking ones anyway.

Reality moment: Asian women are smaller framed and would be thinner. But she also probably strictly controls her diet to keep herself from getting flabby and to keep her skin nice.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Asian women are "smaller framed" but when they reached middle age it's expansion time. After children, being content, etc. It's life.

Looks like she needs some meat on her (excuse the pun)

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Can't see any ribs poking out so I guess she's naturally small-framed.

They pride themselves in being thin. I met a Japanese woman who told me that her Obstetrician told her not to put weight on during pregnancy when I was expressing awe on how quicly they went back to their pre pregnancy weight. ( Thats like asking the devil for some cool water). so I guess she is ok.

I’ve grown as a result of this movie.

Apparently not in the chest area, nor in the integrity area.

Now you see why men will never take women seriously….now matter what their educational level is.

Pretty much all Japanese obstetricians will tell mothers to be not to gain more that the rough birth weight of the baby 3-4kg. If they are already overweight, then they will be asked to gain no more, and if underweight, to gain enough to hit ideal weight + a little.

I don't see this as being medically wrong, although as a father I know how much emotional and physical stress is involved for mum during that preiod so managing weight really shouldn't be that high a priority ;)

to the posters who don`t see any bones.....you could get a nasty cut from that part of her pelvic bone protruding from her side.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

outofmydepth you are right. And wonder what happened to the nail or the varnish on the ring finger? Admire her boldness to strip at a public event, but i think she should be careful about other details too..
