Yoko Mitsuya (三津谷 葉子, Mitsuya Yōko?, born November 8, 1984) is a Japanese gravure idol and actress.[1][2]

Biography[edit]

Yoko Mitsuya was born in Tokyo but moved to Saitama shortly after she was born. She began practicing ballet as a first grader; her dream was to become a ballerina. When she was in sixth grade, she applied for the Horipro Talent Scout Caravan and was awarded a prize for her excellent work. From there, she made her debut in the photobook Baby Kiss.

Even though Mitsuya was now aiming to become an actress, because of her large bust size for her age, she began doing gravure work at a steady pace. She had been in several publications and photobooks by the time she was 15, and was chosen as the Visual Queen of the year for 2000. Because of her bust size and overall body appearance, Mitsuya was considered chubby and this pressured her to crash diet when she was 16. During this time she stopped gravure work. Furthermore, since her dream of becoming an actress was being deterred due to her gravure work, she considered leaving Horipro and even sent a resume to Starbucks.

Mitsuya made a comeback when she was 18 as a lingerie model and had her first movie role in the 2004 film 69 ~ Sixty Nine. Also in 2004, she appeared in the Kamen Rider Blade movie, Missing Ace as Kamen Rider Larc, a role she would later reprise in the 2009 Kamen Rider Decade. In 2006 she played in a live action movie of Tatsuya Egawa's (semi hentai manga) Tokyo Daigaku Monogatari.

Also in 2006 Mitsuya starred in a ("Electra" like) super hero movie called "Cool Dimension". She played a robot girl in the mini series "Sakura 2 Go" (2007), about a love-torn scientist who recreates his lost love in a robot. In 2007 she also had a role as a supporting actress in "Drift Special - Beauty Battle Deluxe Edition".

Another 2007 role was in the movie "IT Bubble to Neta Onna Tachi " about a girl, dreaming of becoming a star, who travels from the country to Tokyo where she discovers young IT startups and falls in love. In 2008 she played in the movie "Sunshine Days", and was a supporting actress in the series K-tai Investigator 7 and Metal Samurai.
