Fashion designer and "talent" Uno Kanda, 35, announced Tuesday that she plans to separate from her husband, Takuo Nishimura, 40, and that she has already moved her belongings out of his condo.
Kanda made the announcement after a fashion show in Tokyo for a line of kimono and dresses she designed herself.
Kanda admitted that the pair had been living separately off and on for the past year, and that it was her lifestyle choice. "Just because you're married doesn't mean you need to spend every single day under the same roof," she commented.
However, Kanda said they had no plans to get divorced.
The couple, who married at Meiji Shrine in October 2007, have held six wedding ceremonies since then in places such as Guam, Saipan and Hawaii.© Japan Today
