Satomi Ishihara (26) and Hideaki Takizawa (31) were reportedly seen together at a high-class yakiniku restaurant in Ebisu in May this year.
"She was with Hideaki Takizawa. I've actually seen the two together a number of times now. When I saw them, Satomi-chan arrived while being surrounded by a number of her staff. Tackey still wasn't at the venue, and she entered a private room. Then 20 or 30 minutes later, Tackey arrived together with a few men and went straight to the private room where Satomi-chan went to. The male staff who were with him clearly looked tense as they were looking around. By the time they left, Satomi-chan and Tackey were standing close to each other as they headed towards the elevator. They looked nothing but lovers at that time." - (regular customer)
"The two always met in private rooms. And they would leave separately in order to camouflage the date. But inside the room, they would always sit next to each other and act sweet without taking notice of what's happening around them. When a restaurant staff member enters the private room, I heard that they were so careful that they'd even stop talking to each other no matter how much they were enjoying. Satomi-chan loves the beef rumen part, and the restaurant staff have seen the two of them sharing a single plate." - (different regular customer)
When the yakiniku shop staff was asked, they admitted that the two have been going to the restaurant.
"Satomi Ishihara-san comes here a lot even when she's alone. There are also times when she comes with Tackey-san."
A showbiz reporter reveals the connection between the two.
"The two of them have been very close friends since starring together in 2005's NHK Taiga drama Yoshitsune. After a tabloid scooped them in 2006 when they saw a stage play together, they were never seen with each other since, leading to break up rumors. But I'm surprised that they were dating while hiding themselves from the public eye. It is easy to hide it when it's a yakiniku date."
But Ishihara has also had her fair share of rumors with men. She was caught kissing Takeru Sato in the after-party of last year's stage play, and was also caught drunk, acting all lovey-dovey with Shun Oguri in spring this year.
"Ishihara will be starring in the autumn drama Koi as a college student who falls in love with a husband and wife. She will be having a kissing scene with the husband, played by Arata Iura (38), and the wife, played by Rena Tanaka (33). It is said that the staff is also bewitched by her acting. She was always known to have her acting reflect what she's experiencing in her private life. She's probably having a good relationship now if this is the case." - (gossip show staff)
