Wedding bells ring! Captain of the Japanese National Football team Makoto Hasebe (32) and model Arisa Sato (27) registered their marriage on the 9th July. The couple has been “officially” dating for three years (knowing each other for five – or so it seems from Hasebe’s message), with the wedding news popping up from time to time in the media since last year. Hasebe, who is known for being a huge Mr. Children fan, quoted the lyrics of their song “Simple” in his message to the fans and the media. Check the reaction of the cyberspace after the jump!
Hasebe wrote to the media: “I have registered my marriage with model Arisa Sato today. Friends and family pointed out that my last message was a bit stiff. I would like to be more personal today. After 5 years of trials, my approach has been rewarded. We spend a lot of time separated, but her natural brightness and smile is the best medicine for everything. “We will be strong like the grass that stands in the pouring rain” – keeping each other hands when facing difficulties, always smiling and respecting each other.”.
