Kanna Hashimoto, a.k.a. Japan’s ‘once in a thousand years’ idol, continuously mesmerises both local and overseas J-entertainment fans with her unparalleled beauty. The 22-year-old star gained popularity in 2013 when a candid fan photo of her went viral during a performance of her then group Rev. from DVL. Since then, she has starred in countless movies and TV shows, most of which are live-action adaptations of manga and anime references.
But this living doll isn’t just capturing our hearts through her various projects. Her Instagram, where her management posts off-shot photos of the actress, charms us just as much.
Below, we list our favourite Kanna Hashimoto Instagram beauty moments that prove why she’s a ‘visual’ icon.
Her adorable double braids
Braids, along with other hair trends, are currently dominating the J-beauty scene. That’s why it’s no surprise that Kanna is also wearing her hair like this in this kawaii (cute) off-duty Instagram photo from the behind-the-scenes of a magazine shoot. Talk about a look that captures her youthfulness well.
Her 2022 calendar cover
The East Asian entertainment scene is quite big on celebrity-themed calendars. This calendar teaser posted on her Instagram shows why hers is worth every buck for Kanna fans. While her natural look is already captivating, a dolled-up Kanna with crimped hair and blushed cheeks looks simply ethereal.
