Sho Sakurai, Aoi Miyazaki star in “Kamisama no Karute”
Arashi’s Sho Sakurai (28) is set to star in a new movie by director Yoshihiro Fukagawa, titled “Kamisama no Karute.” He will for the first time be joined by actress Aoi Miyazaki (24), who plays the heroine of the story.
Sakurai has been cast as a doctor for the film, which is based on a bestselling novel published last year by an actual doctor named Sosuke Natsukawa. Ichito Kurihara (played by Sakurai) is a local physician in Nagano who meets an elderly woman with terminal cancer. His interaction with her leads to his own growth as a doctor and as a person. Miyazaki plays Sakurai’s beloved wife Haruna, who works as a photographer.
