Japanese portal Spa Nikkan! he published an article reporting on the current state of Kizuna Sakura (佐 倉 絆)a retired adult film actor who opened a ramen restaurant in December 2020 after a successful fundraising campaign.

«scian sakura, who won the “SKY PerfecTV! Actor of the Year ”at the Adult Broadcasting Awards, she retired as an adult film actress when she was so popular, and opened a ramen restaurant about nine months after her retirement. A former porn actress was talking about an unusual second career, but what was most striking was the crowd funding she started before she opened her business.».

«Basically, people who run a fundraising campaign give something back to those who donate, called “give back.” The content of the “returns” content depends on the amount of aid, and repayment plans are usually set up from 1,000 yen to thousands of yen. However, Sakura-san launched an unprecedented “1.2 million yen plan”, equivalent to more than US $ 9,300.».

«His name probably allowed them to set up an unrivaled return plan, but what did he really mean? So we interviewed Sakura-san to find out more about her reasons for opening a ramen store and her unparalleled crowdfunding results. The post-retirement careers of porn actresses are quite diverse. While some people use their experience and anonymity, such as being writers and YouTubers, opening a ramen store is a unique case.»

«When asked for his reasons, he replied: “I always wanted to start my own business one day, but the worst thing about retiring as a porn actor was that I would no longer be able to see my fans. While at work, she performed weekly events and interacted with more fans than other actresses. So I thought: “Is there a way to stop being a porn actress and still meet my fans?”Then I thought:“If I create a treasure, I can create those opportunities myself“. But in cafes, or beauty cabinets like the ones run by other actresses, it’s not easy for male fans to get into. That’s when I was approached to open a ramen restaurant franchise, and I thought this was the easiest place to socialize, so I decided to start.».

«While the recession makes it difficult for celebrities to meet their fans in person, Sakura-san said she did not want to miss that opportunity. And with regard to the much-discussed crowdfunding, which was launched with the idea of ​​connecting with fans, he said: “I funded it myself, of course, but decided to start crowdfunding because I thought it would be more interesting if the fans helped. Instead of suddenly opening a ramen shop, I thought people would be happier if it was turned into a “restaurant created by all Kizuna Sakura fans”. I wanted fans to think “I’m one of the people who created that ramen restaurant” by getting t – shirts and other items as a donation return, even if they’re far away and can’t get to the store .».

«He continued to comment on the donation of 1.2 million yen: “As for the 1.2 million yen plan, I did not expect anyone to support me. As for the two – day trip, one night that I suggested as a joke, I have been preparing ever since I found out that someone had donated the amount. However, the person later told me: “I just wanted to support the maximum so I wanted to reduce the two day one night trip considering the current times“. When I thought about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I realized what it meant. By the way, the tour is no longer available, but all other return products, such as personal food, product vouchers and ramen packages, have already been launched».

«The restaurant opened in December 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemicWhat’s the current situation? Following the opening of the second store, the Variante-Omicron started and more emergency measures were declared that affected profits. It is already considering opening a third branch as it continues to deal with the remaining effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.».
