KADOKAWA Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, President: Tsuyoshi Natsuno) will release the first photo essay “Matsu no Moto” (1,800 yen) by actress Wakana Matsumoto on Saturday, February 25, 2023. + tax). Today, November 25th (Friday), we started accepting reservations at each sales site.
Matsumoto Wakana, who has been attracting attention as a 38-year-old late-blooming breakout actress, has become a hot topic by appearing in dramas in the January and April periods of this year, and in the July period, she will play the first lead role in a serial drama in the 15th year of her debut. “Actress Wakana Matsumoto” was featured on “Jonetsu Tairiku” (TBS series) broadcast on Sunday, November 27th, and it can be said that she is the most breakout actress of the year. Matsumoto’s first photo essay “Matsu no Moto” is a book that condenses the charm of a seasonal actress. There are plenty of thoughts in his own words, such as episodes about his private life that have not been revealed on SNS, his thoughts on his early days, and what he wants to challenge in the future.
In addition, in the photo part, many valuable photos such as newly taken photos with a sense of privacy and behind-the-scenes cuts at the shooting site taken by themselves are posted. Also, in a good way, the “Narikiri cut” that Matsumoto bursts out of is a highlight.
“It might be better to have themes such as ‘fashionable’, ‘cute’, and ‘cool’, but that doesn’t look like Matsumoto, so I threw in various things,” she said, referring to the actress’s photo essay. It is a work that condenses the fun of “Human Wakana Matsumoto” that goes beyond the frame.

Author: Comment from Wakana Matsumoto
It’s been 38 years since I was born into this world. I was tossed around by rough seas to some extent, but I think that I have gained a lot through various experiences.
I’ve been carried out to publish my book like that.
Wakana Matsumoto’s “ordinary” is written and spelled out.
In addition to text, there are plenty of content about Matsumoto today, such as photos and illustrations. I faced many challenges. It may be the first and last. Because I think it’s a figure that can only be left now.
The release date is my 39th birthday.
Goro is also the best thank you! “I would like to express my gratitude to everyone, so please look forward to it.”
