Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

Haruna Kojima in yukata. PEACE!

Haruna Kojima in yukata.

AKB48 member Haruna Kojima will never have to worry about a second career after graduating AKB48.  Kojima-san is one of the few remaining members of the original team that started in 2005, and there are rumors that she will graduate in 2014.  She is now almost 27 years old, which is getting a little “long-in-the-tooth” to be a Japanese idol.  Haruna has been a professional model for years.  Her work with the Peach John company is especially notable.  I doubt if she will starve when-if she graduates AKB.  I love her photo-shoots of course, and  I especially liked the kimono magazine work that she has done.  Do you know how difficult it is to find photos of Kojima-san in kimono?

Haruna Kojima caught looking lovely, as she waits for the morning train in a beautiful kimono. Japanese painters: Please capture this moment!

KojiHaru is a professional “underwear model” so if you do a Google or Bing search for “Haruna Kojima” you get millions of photos of her in her underwear.  The results are usually images of her in sexy lingerie, or if not that, then wearing a bikinis, or short miniskirts.  There are all these magazine ads showing her dressing, undressing, doing the laundry, etc. that you have to wade through.  You get the idea.  Try to find a photo of Kojima-san that is NOT sexy.  I dare you.  I do wish I had all the scans of that kimono magazine shoot she did.  I must have had to look at a million detailed photos of Haruna in her underwear in order to find these kimonos.  Now, even my toenails are sweating, and I did not know that they could.  Please enjoy this short slide show of Haruna and friends in kimono.

PS: I may be the first blogger to ever describe Ms. Kojima as getting “long-in-the-tooth”.
