Rui Sakuragi

Rui Sakuragi was described as a “real AV Queen”, the “top Japanese AV idol of the mid-1990′s” and the “biggest star” in AV in 1992.

Japanese AV idol, gravure idol and erotic dancer Rui Sakuragi was born in Tokyo on March 8, 1969. After having previously been a gravure idol, she made her AV debut in April 1989 under the name Masako Ichinose. She took the name Rui Sakuragi the following year, then retired in 1992.

Sakuragi got married just before her retirement, and bored with nothing to do, she started a career as a stripper in clubs throughout Japan. Almost 4 years later and once again single (and poor), Sakuragi returned to AV. Where an attractive leading lady in AV could command 1.5 to 2 million yen (about $10,000 to $15,000) for a video, Sakuragi, the biggest star at that time, made 3 million yen (more than $20,000) per project. After 4 films she again retired. Sakuragi also worked extensively in mainstream movies, softcore and TV, both during and after her AV career.

    I hope that she is comfortable now. They are some great photos, I love the opening shot and how she looks in the next 3 pics and then the one with her arse in the air! To borrow an expression from Arf, ZOIKS! :)

    You guys are on a hot streak with the retro Japanese gravure/AV stars. Keep it going.

    Is it just me or has the physique and appearance of popular, past Japan models/actresses changed quite a bit? It seems that what is popular today tends more toward the extremely cute, whereas 15 years ago or more there seemed to be a more mature vibe.

    Not that I am complaining, they are all gorgeous.

    Oh I whole heartedly agree Master Luke….an arse in the air is always a joy to behold. May the arse be with you.

    Exactly my thoughts.

    Nothing wrong with Rui, but I’m not sure why she was that popular compared with other JAV idols, BUTT I have a hunch.

    The energy of the photos backs up the narrative: This is no “One Man Woman”!
    I can see she’s more of a punk than a rocker. The choo-choo train to a glimpse of paradise begins at her back door. But I’m afraid I’d be just another toy in her drawer.
