Princess Gakky on a horse

Princess Gakky (Aragaki Yui) gave her fans a little extra service when she appeared fully wrapped in her princess garments and riding on a horse for the stage-greeting PR-event of "Ballad: Namonaki Koi no Uta" on Monday.

Aragaki definitely caught the attention of everyone walking down the street, when she slowly walked up the road in front of the TV Asahi building sitting on top of a horse. Her last time on the back of a horse was for the actual filming of "BALLAD" back in September 2008, so she didn’t really want take the risk of riding the 10 years-old mare "Cocopa" in a city all by herself, but for the movie she actually practiced to ride without any help.

"There’s a huge difference between riding a horse in the mountains and riding a horse within a city, I was really embarrassed. I wasn’t sure whether I would be able to ride it all by myself, that’s why we had a person pulling the horse, but fortunately it was really calm today." She commented with her trademark smile. With her princess kimono, she then went to the TOHO Cinema and attended the stage greeting without any delay.

"It’s really strange to say I’m Aragaki Yui with those clothes. Today I’m probably like 60% princess and 40% Aragaki." She said and then asked the audience, "Everyone, how often have you seen it (the movie)?" - "5 times!" One person in the audience answered. Gakky once again thanked everyone who went to watch the movie with her upgraded trademark smile, her very own princess smile.
