Actor Ryuta Sato, 30, was chosen as the most fantastic celebrity father at the "29th Best Father Yellow Ribbon Awards" ceremony held in Tokyo this week.
Sato, who was married last July, celebrated the birth of his first child, a daughter, in November. "I'm really happy to win the award despite being a rookie father," the actor said, "and I hope to continue doing a good job as not to embarrass my wife or my daughter."
Sato also congratulated "Tokyo Friends" costar Eita, 27, who recently found out that he, too, will be a father this coming November with Kaera Kimura, 25.
Minister of Internal Affairs Kazuhiro Haraguchi, 50, won best father in the politician division, as did Diet member Yoshimi Watanabe, 58. In the sports division, mountain climber Ken Noguchi, 36, took home the prize.© Japan Today
