Noriyuki Higashiyama’s message for his fans

23:34 JST November 9, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Johnny’s star Noriyuki Higashiyama (44) made an appearance by himself in front of the press after his stage play press conference in Tokyo yesterday in order to tell his fans about his marriage, reports Sponichi Annex


Higashiyama, his junior Toma Ikuta (26), and several others of his co-stars and producers had originally come to promote the Mishima double stage play yesterday.


Once the conference had finished, the six had walked away, but Higashiyama came back by himself.

“I wanted to report about my marriage myself so asked for their (the organiser’s) permission,” he said.


Higashiyama first apologized for the two week delay between his and Yoshino Kimura’s (34) fax announcement, and his formal comments.  The star had explained he had been in Kyoto until a few days ago filming “Genjimonogatari”, which had made it harder to get enough journalists together for his announcement.

“I want to take my work more seriously, and devote everything I have into making something better, doing better performances for my fans,” he said.


It has been reported that filming for his movie will continue until the end of November, after which stage rehearsals will begin for his stage show.


After his announcement, it has been reported that a number of the press had started asking Higashiyama questions including about his wedding ring.

“Not today…but we have exchanged rings,” he said.

Another question was when he planned to hold a formal ceremony.

“We’re both busy so at the moment there are no plans,” he said.

Finally, when asked how he had proposed to Kimura, the Johnny’s star just smiled and placed his finger on his mouth, signalling it would be a secret.
