Japan’s tabloids have been speculating that actress Misaki Ito (left), 32, will marry Yoshinori Enomoto, 40, president of pachinko machine manufacturer Kyoraku Sangyo. However, Ito’s agency Ken-On is keeping mum on the subject, and the actress herself has dropped out of sight. The media reported that the pair would get married in November in Hawaii, where they met last autumn at the wedding of actress Mami Uematsu, 31. Ito (Last Love) has been friends with Uematsu since they starred together in the 2001 drama Beauty 7. Enomoto was invited to the wedding as a guest of the groom—also a player in the pachinko business. Ito and Enomoto were spotted together at a hot spring resort in Oita Prefecture in March this year, and at a restaurant in Tokyo in April with socialite Uno Kanda, 34, and her pachinko king husband Takuro Nishimura, 39. Stay tuned.
