Kawashima Naomi has passed away


Kawashima Naomi entertained audiences as a singer back in the late ’70s and early ’80s.

Naomi continued to entertain audiences but on television as an actress starring on dramas such as “Wakamono no Subete” (1994), “Shitsurakuen” (1997), “Kurenai” (1998), “At Home Dad” (2004) to name a few.

But her husband, famous pastry chef Yoroizuka Toshihiko, announced on Facebook that Naomi had passed away on Thursday evening and that she performed on stage until a week ago.

Naomi succumbed to bile duct cancer, which she made public back in 2014 after undergoing surgery a few months earlier.
