Ito Hideaki receives 'Latino Japan 2010' award

On 15th December, Ito Hideaki attended the '4th Latino Japan 2010' award ceremony in Tokyo. Luxury watch brand Cuervo Y Sobrinos conferred the award on the actor as the personality of the year embodying the fiery Latin spirit. Founded in 1882 in Havana,Cuba, Cuervo Y Sobrinos became known as the “Pearl of the Caribbean”, and today the watches are crafted in Switzerland. Ito was presented with a 1.2 million yen Prominente Dual Time. "I buy watches for myself occasionally but this is the first time I have a diamond-encrusted one. I'll tackle work even more passionately now," he said.

He will be spending Christmas in Osaka, continuing the run of stage play Jeanne d'Arc. Reporters asked him if he would be giving anyone Christmas presents this year. "Santa has never once given me what I wished for so I've bought Precure for my younger sister's two daughters. I thought I should give them what they wanted. What I wanted was a Ginga Tetsudou 999 train..." he recalled laughing. His plans for next year? "Next year being the year of the Rabbit, as my zodiac sign is, I plan to work hard as well."
