I guess you could say she's Japan's it-girl right now, though that term isn't quite right, because I don't think her presence in the Japanese entertainment scene will be fading any time soon. Her popularity skyrocketed after Atsuhime, which was a highly successful taiga drama in Japan. And, isn't she such a cutie pie? I also had some reservations about her, wondering why she was so popular, and though I haven't watched Atsuhime, her performance in Tada Kimi wo Aishiteru (Heavenly Forest) totally won me over

Oh yeah, being in taiga drama means she's constantly in traditional Japanese garb, so of course we would be seeing her in a kimono all the time. I'm not surprised she topped this ranking at all

4. Mika Nakashima




:w00t:
You updated with a picture! Mika looks absolutely stunning in this picture. She belongs on a vintage poster, or in a portrait hanging in the Louvre. (Okay, I just don't know the name of any famous museums in Japan )
It's funny how they called her "Eyebrowless-san" in Ryusei no Kizuna, since her eyebrows are so thin. But that's actually more true to the original Japanese aesthetic, and I think it suits her well when she's in a kimono!

These pictures make me recall a couple years back, when Memoirs of a Geisha was made into a movie. When they announced the cast, with three Chinese actresses playing the three leads, I was totally like wtf, why do that when there are so many beautiful talented Japanese actresses out there. And then I saw the movie and thought hey, it wasn't so bad and they played the parts pretty well. I guess the director just wanted some actresses who could at least be semi-fluent in English, to market the movie in America (where most people are too busy to read subtitles I guess )

But now I'm once again thinking, forget Zhang Ziyi! Mika (or Miyazaki Aoi, if you want to interpret the main character in a more endearing way) should've been the star of that movie! And Nakama Yukie should have replaced Michelle Yeoh's role!!!

But it would be kinda odd to see Mika in a romantic relationship with Watanabe Ken

Oh yeah, it's probably just a bad picture...but Ayumi Hamasaki's kimono doesn't look too great to me. It's so busy and the fabric looks so showy, not refined at all.

Awesome! I've only seen Mika Nakashima in a kimono once, and that was for about 30 seconds in Ryusei no Kizuna. She looked so lovely in it though, as if she was born to wear one. Aoi Yuu, Nakama Yukie, and Miyazaki Aoi really look splendid too. I think their faces compliment the kimono very well ^^

Love the male list too! Tamaki Hiroshi and Matsuda Shota look so cool, while Tsumabuki Satoshi looks so very handsome in it! (Can't help but think of his Pocky CM now )

I've never seen Eita or Kuranosuke Sasaki in one though! Anyone with pictures care to share?


so true!! i think mika nakashima and aoi yuu were born to wear kimonos!! their faces compliment the kimono and brings out the elegance of the clothing--i LOVE all the kimono aoi yuu wears in Osen jdrama! Looks so traditional and beautiful!

Never seen Eita wear one...but TAMAKI HIROSHI XD he should ALWAYS wear one- lol...


Eita wore a kimono on Nodame Cantabile, the show tamaki hiroshi STARRED in O_O;;
Anyway, here's one i found:



its such a bad photo, but its the rare ones i found ^_^;;


thank you! and i WATCHED that drama too...shows how much i focused on the other characters....hahaha
