Azumi Kawashima (川島和津実 Kawashima Azumi ), born August 8, 1979 in Tokyo, Japan, is a former adult video (AV) actress and model.
Life and career
Azumi Kawashima was born in Tokyo on August 8, 1979. Her debut adult video (AV) was Promise released under the Try-Heart Corporation's Sexia's label in December 1998. In January 1999, Kawashima starred in Naive, for the Shy label. Her next video was for the Sexia label, I Want To Hold You (February 1999), and she was back at Shy for the April 1999 release, Purity, directed by Kunihiro Hasegawa.
Kawashima performed in the seventh volume of Sexia's Pretty Wife series, subtitled Dangerous Love Triangle, which was released in May 1999. This proved to be her last video as Kawashima retired from AV work after May 1999.
In addition to her video career, Kawashima's portfolio includes the release of 10 photobooks released from 1999 to 2003. Outside of her adult work, Kawashima also had a major part in the 1999 V-Cinema horror film Demon Killer or Junreiki 殉霊鬼(じゅんれいき), directed by Seki Akitsugu, where six men and women staying at a villa are attacked by a killer.
Kawashima's video and photobooks remained popular in Japan after her retirement and when the Japanese video retailer DMM polled AV fans in early 2012 for the best AV actresses over the 30 year history of the genre, Kawashima ranked number 4 out of 100 actresses listed.
