Life and career

Rui Sakuragi was born on March 8, 1970. After having previously been a "gravure" (non-sex) model, she made her adult video (AV) debut for the VIP Atlas21 label in April 1989 under the name Masako Ichinose but took the name Rui Sakuragi the following year.[5] She sometimes worked for other studios but Atlas21 was her main label for the next two years. Her work for them included a 7-man orgy in Golden Pavilion Temple 2[6] and cosplay in The Uniform Connection Special.[7] Sakuragi announced that her April 1992 release for Atlas21, The Last of Rui Sakuragi would be her final work and left with a tearful farewell.[8]

According to a 1992 article, whereas 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 present" made 3 million yen (more than $20,000) per project.[4]

Sakuragi had married just before her retirement and bored with nothing to do started a career as a stripper in clubs throughout Japan.[9] Almost 4 years later and once again single (and poor),[9] Sakuragi returned to AV with a contract with Atlas21 for 3 videos beginning with Phoenix Once Again in March 1996.[2] After the third video, Super AV Idol Legend, fan response convinced her to do a fourth and final film, Good Bye Rui Sakuragi.[10] Since her retirement, Atlas21, Kuki, and Alice Japan have all released compilations of her earlier videos.[11]

During her AV career and after her retirement, Sakuragi also worked extensively in mainstream movies and softcore pink film and V-Cinema productions.[12][13] One early movie was the March 1992 Paris Fantasy (幻想のParis Gensō no Paris ?), a drama of romance and revenge set in the Parisian fashion industry where she co-starred with Kayo Matsuo.[14] She also had a leading role in an episode of the long-running TV drama Kaseifu ha mita (家政婦は見た!) broadcast by TV-Asahi on December 4, 1997.[15][16] Later, she was a regular on the NTV love story/suspense drama Tsumetai tsuki (冷たい月) which ran in 10 episodes from January to March 1998.[17] In 2002, she had a voice role in the anime erotic-horror film Youjuu Kyoushitsu Chapter 2 (Demon Beast Invasion Chapter 2) with another former AV Idol, Riria Yoshikawa.[18]
