J-actress Ishihara Satomi recently came in 2nd in a viewer poll of the top Heisei era (1989-2019) actress but she’s my personal number 1. She would actually be tied with Horitaka Maki who didn’t make the top 10 list and has since retired last year but the two really exemplify a very modern Japanese beauty I find so enchanting. Dynamic and versatile, Satomi is both girly and womanly at the same time depending on how she’s styled. She is even convincing as a tomboy for roles that call for such and she’s always a treat for me to watch onscreen. Two years ago she was featured in an Ella Taiwan cover and pictorial which isn’t all that frequent for J-stars so this is a spread I’ve wanted to share for awhile. Enjoy as the Heisei era ends this month and who knows what the Reiwa era will bring in terms of new iconic J-stars for the next generation.
She’s really pretty. Love the clothes as well . I agree to put Maki on top of that list. I hope she’ll still return.
I also wish there’ll be resurgence of good JDoramas. I used to enjoy a lot back then as I find them easy to watch even if the plot is weird at times.
IS is one of my favourite JDrama actress and I recognise her name moreso then any other J actress oh and Nana too. Is IS still going out with Yamapi or was that just a rumour? I really liked their drama From Five to Nine.Anyway she’s been cast alongside Sota Fukushi in a drama and I’m looking forward to that.
Ishihara Satomi would be my number 1 pick too. She is such a charming actress.
For me, she has an average beauty but she got a style.
