During an event she attended on September 7, Kawashima drew attention for being "unhealthily skinny". In her blog, she wrote, "I try to eat my meals slowly while chewing very carefully. When I had surgery about a year and a half ago, I had my gallbladder removed. I have less digestive enzymes than other people, so I have to eat light food little by little."
Kawashima also shared, "I love to eat, in the past and even now, so please don't worry about me." She continued, "I am doing well. Especially when I'm on stage, I'm like a different person."†
On November 5, Kawashima is scheduled to hold her first solo live in about 20 years at Ebisu Act Square. "Please look forward to it," she said.†Finally, she closed the blog entry saying, "With thanks to everyone."
Kawashima received surgery for intrahepatic bile duct cancer in January of last year.
