Thank you everyone for your continued support.†
Today, on September 28, I, Fukuyama Masaharu, married Fukiishi Kazue-san.†
We started off as friends, and after dating for a few years, we became aware of the importance of each other's presence.
The two of us only know of the world of our jobs, and we are very much inexperienced in many aspects.†
We hope to receive guidance and encouragement from our fans, staff, and persons concerned, and build a small and cheerful family together.†
Uninterruptedly, I am continuing to plan my year-end lives.†
As before, I will continue to give it my all in order to make each and every opportunity I am given the best as possible, so please continue to support me."

"To everyone who have supported me.
Thank you for your continued support.
Please forgive me for making this sudden announcement in writing.
Today, I, Fukiishi Kazue, married Fukuyama Masaharu-san.
I entered the show biz at age 13. With the support of my staff and fans, I was able to make it this far.†
I am still very inexperienced with work, and even as a woman. With everyone's guidance and encouragement, I hope to grow as a human being, and build a family of endless warmth and smiles.
I think my activities will be slow for a short while, but I ask that you please continue to support me.
