Former Morning Musume member Rika Ishikawa Married Ryoma Nogami of the Saitama Seibu Lions baseball team on March 13, 2017.
The couple filed their marriage documents according to the singer who revealed the news via her personal blog. She is the next famous former Morning Musume member to get married. In August 2014, I wrote that Ishikawa was dating Nogami. Rika Ishikawa married Nogami several months after former member Risa Niigaki got married.
Ishikawa took some time to look back at her past by saying that since her debut with Morning Musume in 2000, she has met many people and experienced many things. Meeting Nogami took her happiness to a different level. She also mentioned that they would continue to support each other as a couple as they continue to express their feelings of gratitude and compassion. This is very exciting news for this former Morning Musume babe! I had written back in January 2017 that according to the source Sports Hochi, Ishikawa and Nogami were planning on getting married sometime in 2017.
Ishikawa was a member of Morning Musume’s 4th generation along with Hitomi Yoshizawa, Nozomi Tsuji, and Ai Kago. She met AKB48 singer Yuki Kashiwagi in early 2013. Ishikawa has released many photo books including Hana Bi (2004) and she is one of the prettiest members in the history of Hello! Project. Ishikawa also has said that she was living every day feeling very excited before she met Ryoma Nogami. That’s the way that we should all strive to live our lives. Congratulations to Rika Ishikawa who is now married and may the couple live a long and happy life!
Another reason for Ishikawa’s fame is because she was a former member of the group Country Musume (now known as Country Girls). Ishikawa also formed the two person duo Hangry & Angry with Yoshizawa. Ishikawa was also the leader of the group v-u-den. The two other members of that group were Erika Miyoshi and Yui Okada who is my favorite member of that group. Ishikawa is still pretty amazing though!
