Itoh Misaki Marries Pachinko CEO

Itoh Misaki, Enomoto Yoshinori

Management for actress Itoh Misaki (32) announced yesterday that she got married to Enomoto Yoshinori (42), CEO of major pachinko company Kyoraku Sangyo. Two met last November when they were bridesmaid and best man at the Hawaii wedding of talento Uematsu Mami (32), and started dating in January. They plan to also tie the knot in Hawaii, with a church wedding and reception planned for Oahu on November 24. Yesterday, after they visited Itoh’s family home in Fukushima Prefecture, Enomoto registered their marriage at the municipal office. Itoh became one of the most widely seen faces in Japan a few years ago after appearing in successful TV dramas and movies such as “Densha Otoko” and “Umineko” and a seemingly endless string of TV commercials. She has no drama roles scheduled for the rest of this year but is said to be planning to continue her acting career. In 1988 Enomoto entered the pachinko business started by his father in 1952. He was made a director in 1998, vice-president in 2005, and he took over the business in 2006.
