Risa Yoshiki (吉木 りさ?) is a Japanese gravure idol and singer.[1] She has released two singles, seven DVDs, and appears regularly on TV and radio.

Life and career[edit]

Yoshiki was born in Funabashi in Chiba Prefecture near Tokyo. She wanted to be a manga artist when growing up. In her first year of high school, she was scouted in Harajuku by the Fitone[n 1] agency. She decided to become an enka singer and trained for two years.

In November 2004, she released a DVD of images, "Koi". Her parents were opposed to a career in glamour modelling. From 2009 she became a regular on a variety programme called Campus Night Fuji. In 2010, the programme finished. She also graduated from the Asia University of Japan in the same year.

Her debut as a singer was a cover version of Yozakura Oshichi, originally sung by Fuyumi Sakamoto. She went on to perform with others in the cast of Campus Night Fuji in a group called Campus Nighters. In March 2011 she released a single Destin Histoire under the name "yoshiki*lisa".

In 2010, a television variety programme chose her as the woman with the most beautiful face in an encyclopedia of Japanese celebrities.[2]

In February 2011 her DVDs dominated Amazon.co.jp's rankings for sales of idol DVDs, occupying first, second, third and fourth places.[3] Idol commentator Hideo Horikoshi attributes her success to the contrast of her genuine beauty, of the kind not usually found in glamour models, with a willingness to pose for pictures including crotch shots, cosplay, and bondage poses.[3]
