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.”
