Photo of Rina Yamashita sparks talk about how much she looks like Yamapi

This week, Tomohisa Yamashita’s sister Rina posted a photo of herself without any makeup on, attracting a number of comments saying she is the split image of her older brother, reports Sankei News.


On January 15, Rina uploaded a photo of herself on her blog, holding a copy of Twilight’s “New Moon”, which she said she was going to read before going to sleep.

Rina apologises for looking plain, and for wearing glasses, but it is easier to see how her face compares to Yamapi’s.


Several fans commented on the blog saying Rina still looks pretty, and she looks exactly like her brother.

“You’re a beauty with glasses on, a splitting-image of your brother.”

“You look exactly like your brother without makeup on.”

“You look like your brother!!  Do people say you two look alike?”


Rina is currently 23.  Back in 2005 she had worked in showbiz as a gravure model, but shortly afterwards retired from the business.  About two years ago, she gained attention for being the beauty secretary for a politician, but has since left that post as well.

      Amazing eh? Oh, well…maybe not really, considering they’re siblings. But very cool nonetheless.

      Thanks for commenting!

    I would be a lot more surprised if they looked nothing like each other XD
    Although there are some siblings who don’t look that alike, I always find it funny when people seem surprised by celebrities looking like their siblings.

      I think it gives an extra “きゃあー kyaaa!” or “aww!” for fans. Or, at least it would for me…

      Thanks for coming by 🙂
