Shoko, the Okinawan born model who has appeared on the cover of the Men’s fashion magazine GQ, as well as in advertisements for major corporations both domestic and foreign such as Under Armor, Star Flyer, and Toray, will be appearing in the “Orion Southern Star Summer Edition” commercial starting April 18.

This is the first time that Shoko will appear in a commercial for an Okinawan company since she debuted as a model when she was 18, over 10 years ago. “Since I was little, I always believed that I could be in the commercials that I saw on TV. Until now, even though I was taking big jobs overseas, none of my friends in Okinawa ever has the chance to see my work. This time, everyone will get a chance to see,” said Shoko, beaming with a sense of fulfillment.

Shooting took place on Sesoko Island in Motobu at the start of April. “It was very easy shooting in Okinawa’s pleasantly warm climate,” she reflected. “The music was performed by Daichi Miura, and we put together a balmy summery commercial.” She added smiling, “I hope that when people see it they say, ‘I know her.’”
