Is there anything more attractive than a smart, older woman?
Born in 1984, Yukari Oshima (大島由香里) is a former Fuji TV announcer who is now a freelance presenter. Adding some more to her résumé, she is now making a late transition into gravure with this semi-nude shoot that shows off her beautiful, kissable back in particular.
Here are some factoids about Yukari that may or may not make her even more attractive: she’s 36 (a ripe jukujo!), divorced, and a mother.
This is, as far as we know, her first proper gravure-style shoot.
The most successful recent example of a TV announcer transforming herself into a sex symbol and maintaining a good career as a presenter and general tarento would be Minami Tanaka, who released a bestselling photo book and is now one of the most popular celebrities in the land. She has found a sweet spot where she is beloved by both men and women.
Other memorable examples of TV announcers moving into gravure include Shiori Usui, Misumi Shiochi, Mariko Seyama, and Asako Tani. For some, their gravure career has ended up more fruitful than their original line of work.
Has Yukari Oshima, who is a relatively well-known announcer, left it too late, however? Or is she just the right age? We sense a photo book on the cards in the near future…
