Kaoru Yumi (由美かおる Yumi Kaoru?, born November 12, 1950 in Kyoto, Japan) is a Japanese actress.

Biography[edit]

In junior high school, Kaoru joined the Nishino ballet group. She gained popularity with her appearance in the 1967 program Re Gaaruzu with Katsuko Kanai and Etsuko Nami in a mini-skirt number. In 1973, she did her first nude scene in the movie Dōsei Jidai ~Kyōko to Jirō~ (同棲時代 -今日子と次郎-?). In the same year, she also performed in the movie Shinanogawa (しなの川?) which had a similar scene. There was criticism over the scene in the movie where the character lost her virginity.

Kaoru was also featured in a 1976 film Chō kōsō hoteru satsujin jiken (超高層ホテル殺人事件?) which also had a nude scene. In 1986, she became a regular cast member portraying O-gin and O-en in the television prime-time jidaigeki Mito Kōmon (水戸黄門?). Her bath scene is her trademark in the show.[1] She had nude scenes in ESPY, Prophecies of Nostradamus as well, although the first two removed them from U.S. release and the third was extremely brief and not sexualized.
