Ayumi Hamasaki strips down for book version of her diary


TOKYO —Singer Ayumi Hamasaki, 30, is releasing a book which features photos of her in a bikini. Hamasaki has appeared just once in a bikini – for a calendar – since her singing debut in 1998. Her new book, titled “Ayu no dejideji nikki 2000 – 2009A” (Ayu’s Digital Diary 2000-2009), is being released to celebrate her 10 years in the music industry as well as celebrating 100 column pieces written by Hamasaki for monthly fashion magazine Vivi.

The book features 30 photos of Hamasaki, including some of her having lunch and shopping with staff and friends, as well as the eye-catching ones of her in a bikini, taken in Hawaii in January. More than 30,000 copies of the book have already been ordered, which will sell for 3,780 yen from Tuesday.

The book release comes just days before the beginning of her upcoming national tour, which starts with a show at Saitama Super Arena on April 11.
