While I’m still going through my old issues of Up to boy looking for those Hamasaki Ayumi mizugi pics I did manage to find a really cute photo shoot of her from the April 1996 issue of Up to boy. Before she began her music career Ayu was an idol active in t.v. dramas. These are really cute pics of her especially the first one where she’s making that funny expression looking out of a vehicle’s window. You gotta love that! Below I scanned her 6 page article. On the cover is Enomoto Kanako who was one of the first idols who really caught my eye!
Up to boy used to also have a feature back then called “Lets Invade! ——–‘s Room.” It was pretty funny as a different idol would be featured in each issue and along with some pics of the room there would even be a map showing where different furniture and objects are located. Then the idol would reveal some of her interests, hobbies, etc. This issue features Sakurai Ayumi’s room. “Let’s Invade! Ayumi’s Room.” lol.
