Actress Ryoko Yonekura, 38, appeared at an event in Tokyo on Sunday to celebrate the first anniversary of the fashion and lifestyle magazine “DRESS,” which targets women around their 40s (dubbed “arafo” in Japanese).
Yonekura, who appears on the cover each month, said she wants to encourage women who turn 40 and think of it as their second "Coming-of-Age Day," Nikkan Sports reported Monday.
The still-single actress, who herself is going to turn 40 in August next year, said, “Women may see a downside to turning 40, and they may feel restricted about what they can or cannot do. I would like to be active no matter how old I am and I hope I can show that on the cover of 'DRESS' each month."© Japan Today
