On June 1, 'FRIDAY' published an article on actress Yoshitaka Yuriko's romantic relationship with a non-celebrity man.
In mid-May, Yoshitaka was spotted at an izakaya in Nishi-Azabu with a few of her friends. She left the establishment shortly after 10:00 pm with a tall and well-built man who resembles actor Onoe Matsuya. After saying goodbye to friends, she and the man disappeared into the night.
An acquaintance of the actress revealed, "He is an employee of a general corporation. They met through a mutual acquaintance and started dating about a year ago. They are close in age, and he is broad-minded, so Yoshitaka trusts him."
This isn't the first time that FRIDAY caught the couple in public. Last September, they were seen enjoying a sushi restaurant in Roppongi. After finishing their meal, they returned to Yoshitaka's apartment. Similarly, in October, they were seen at a small Chinese restaurant in Roppongi.
"I believe their relationship has been acknowledged by her agency. Because whenever they go out together, they are picked up and dropped off via the agency's vehicle. Sometimes they [the couple] go out to eat with one of the agency staff that she's close with," says the same acquaintance as mentioned above.
Upon inquiring Yoshitaka's agency, they responded, "We let her handle her own private matters."
