We meet a lot of people in life, and some of them become people of renown, or were already famous (whether you knew at the time or not).

I'm curious if anyone here personally knows anyone famous or at least has connections with them. A little indirectness is okay, but be honest.

Yes, this is a bit of a brag thread, so feel free to boast!
(forum rules on respect still apply)


I'll start if off with my connection:

The Kawamitsu Family

From left to right: Akashi, Kanasa, Haru, Yoshiko, Akino, Aki

For those familiar, Akino sung both openings for Aquarion, and one of the endings. Her sibling often do backup for those songs in her concerts.
As a family, they make a gospel vocal group called Bless4, who did the opening to Amagi Brilliant Park, "Extra Magic Hour" with Akino as front.

I first met them while as a missionary in Japan and went to church with them. I didn't know the whole family well. I mostly talked with the father, Haru Kawamitsu, and Aki, who is close to my age. Haru is an amazing person. The story of how he and his wife got together is kind of hilarious. He invited me to one of their Bless4 concerts, and gave the friend I brought miniatures of his painted works (he's very talented in that area too).

One final connection, although indirect: I know the best friend of the McDonald's Cup Dubstepper that has gone viral over the past month or so. We were together in Japan.

Nope. I've seen quite a few in person though. Some include Cuba Gooding Jr., Muhammad Ali, Larry Fitzgerald, Colbie Calliet, and a lot of professional basketball players. My friend got to take a picture with a few of them and got herself a few autographs.

I have Japanese Rapper Lotus Juice on my Facebook. I was honestly surprised when he added me, dudes a humble guy.
INB4 its not really him
Its his personal facebook, he posts personal photos and selfies and shit.

If he ever drops an album in America I swear I will preorder it

I own a handwritten card by Empress Michiko, directed to my (deceased) grandmother. They were friends.

How much do you reckon it would sell for? I accidentally threw out the envelope it was in with the fancy stamp and all that >_>
