Bunshun talks about celebrities and the apartments they live in, Kojiharu lives most luxuriously

14 Sep

In the 10th September issue of Bunshun, an article was published talking about the type of houses various 48Group members lived in. This topic was brought up because of the recent articles about AKS being investigated by tax authorities for undeclared expenses.

According to various media reports, members who live with their families receive a subsidy on their housing rents, in amounts from 1~2 million yen per month. Kojima Haruna in particular, seems to live most luxuriously as her monthly rent is 1.5~3million yen. Her apartment is a 3LDK spanning at least 200sq metres. It comes with 2 baths, a veranda fitted with a jacuzzi and a view of the forest. The place is close to supermarkets and taxis.

Graduated member Kasai Tomomi lives in a 1million yen high rise apartment in Roppongi. She has been spotted going to a Sushi place with a middle aged guy in the neighbourhood and no doubt continues to live a “bubbly” life. (*they’re trying to hint at her relationship with someone we all know about)

Graduated ace Maeda Atsuko used to live in a luxury apartment in Shibuya worth 500,000yen a month, but because of the famous incident where she was papp-ed drunk and crying all over Sato Takeru, male fans started hanging outside her house.She now lives in a low-level mansion in Meguro, about 1million yen a month.

A reporter comments “Celebrities love low-level luxury apartments which allows them to enter/exit easily without revealing their faces. There are lots of cases where idols,or actors in their teens or 20s will rent tower apartments which are properly managed so their agencies can fetch them easily to/from work. However, those with a lower level of income like comedians stay in normal houses.”

There are also “celebrity towers” where you can see various stars living under one roof.

“In Shibuya, there’s a luxury apartment with concierge service, rent starts from 1 million yen. KAT-TUN’s Kamenashi Kazuya, Yamashita Tomohisa, Ayaka and husband Mizushima Hiro, Koda Kumi etc all live there. In Meguro area there is a tower apartment where the average rent is 500,000 yen and EXILE members amongst others live there.”




Kojiharu has so many CMs she definitely has what it takes to live luxuriously. I am more excited about the fact that Kame and Yamapi live in the same building!

    I’d thought Sashihara is the one who lives in the most expensive house since she must earn quite a lot with all those appearance in different programs. As well, she has a considerable amount of CFs and is involved with HKT stuffs.

    But I guess Kojiharu likes to live a luxury live nothing wrong with since she has so many things going on now.

      You can kinda see it based on her shopping habits. On this TV show, she went into this apparel store and spent so much in 1 hour..bought different colors of each item and didn’t even need to try on sizes.

    I am not sure if I understood correctly, but does AKS pay for all the girls rent ?? including senbatsu members ??

    I have always thought Kojiharu was very clever to stay all these years in AKB, things could have been different if she had graduated before. I wonder if she will have all these success she is having now after graduation. It is sad to see so many members failing to keep in the entertainment industry, or even find a good job.

      I think AKS only pays a partial amount as the article says. Would not be weird if senbatsu girls’ rent are covered as well(well we know Jurina and Milky are examples). Kojiharu is not under AKS and probably gets financed by Ogi Pro. I too think she’s smart to stretch out her days in AKB. Girls like mariko,Itano used to be CM queens but Kojiharu replaced them after they graduated and has been doing well since. However her not graduating may have something to do with bunshun.

      I think it’s just the ent. industry is really competitive that while they have more promotional time after their graduation to focus on solo works, they lost the stable promotional outlet that being in idol group gave them and lose certain amount of screentimes on TV…there are cases of some fans that stop being fan bc the member isn’t an idol anymore so the lack of promos + decreased fanbase isn’t helpful for the popularity. I think a good portion of idols aren’t properly trained to survive on their own in acting or singing as well or they have to work harder to work past the stigmas of the idol tag. Being variety acts probably is easier but there’s more competition as well

    Kojiharu seems to get alot of good money from her fashion endorsements. Alot of the stuffs she post on IG are name brands that she bought or likely gifted by sponsors too. Girl also own a racehorse, such a gambler lmao
