IKUTA: GAKKY HAS A BEAUTIFUL NAPE
Actress Aragaki Yui (22) and actor Ikuta Toma (25) attended a PR-Event for their upcoming movie "Hanamizuki" at the Tokyo Daijingu shrine and made prayers for their love.
As typical for such PR events in the summer everyone came wearing yukatas and there is one certain charming point about wearing one that is often getting overlooked. Fortunately Ikuta didn't miss that detail when he looked at Gakky and her yukata, "Your nape is beautiful." It's true, a woman's back of the neck can be very beautiful, especially when wearing a yukata or kimono. Gakky was surprised by his comment, "What are you saying all of a sudden?! It's embarrassing!"
In the movie they play a couple with a relationship that is able to last more than a decade. At one part in their life it eventually turns into a long distance relationship, but that doesn't stop them from loving each other. At the PR event they've invited 9 couples who currently have to be in a long distance relationship as well and together with them they've made prayers for their love at a shrine that is said to be the place of the god of marriage.
The couples also were able to consult Ikuta and Gakky about their relationship and one woman told them, "I'm always worried that my boyfriend could cheat on me with a woman in a love hotel." Ikuta responded, "Love also means to trust. He should always stay faithful to her." Gakky also had an advice for the couples, "You may be in a long distance relationship, but I hope you will always stay close by constantly thinking about your partner."
At the end of the event both of them also tried their luck with the omikuji. Gakky drew a "near-blessing", meaning that her luck is not really certain. About her marriage it said, "Make sure to get married. Do not prolong your engagement any further." Gakky got confused and worried, "Woah, that sounds way too realistic." Ikuta had more luck and drew an "excellent blessing" which said, "You are at your peak right now. Try your best."
