Ishihara Satomi has been spotted visiting Yamashita Tomohisa’s apartment one night in early May.
The 2 were co-actors and lovers in last year’s Fuji TV drama “5-ji kara 9-ji made”.
Ishihara won a “Lead Actress” award and Yamashita won a “Supporting Actor” award in the 19th Nikkan Sports Drama Grand Prix.
“Ishihara isn’t known for dating rumors with other talents usually, and the only one which was reported was a serious relationship with a cameraman. Her ideal type is the sincere kind. She likes dating indoors, so it’s hard to imagine that she’d go for popular types like Yamapi.” – acquaintance of Ishihara
Indeed Yamapi has always been spotted while on his night outs with friends. He was also reported to be in a relationship with Kitagawa Keiko and Abiru Yuu. But when did he get serious with Ishihara?

On the night when Ishihara was spotted visiting Yamapi’s house, it was also the occasion when the cast of “5-ji kara 9-ji made” were having a home party.
