The award ceremony for personalities that best suit fountain pens, the 'Fountain Pens Best Coordinate Award 2011' was held at Haneda Airport Terminal Building on 8th November. Inoue Mao won the open category where the winner is selected by popular votes on the web. The award is in its 8th year and its objective is to spread the popularity of fountain pens. 15 companies dealing with the import of fountain pens, writing materials and manufacturing of writing products sponsored the event.
Inoue first used a fountain pen when she was a young girl. "There was one at my grandmother's house and I used it to write kanji and draw pictures. I received one when I turned 20 and have used it to write letters." She attributed her win to her role in NHK's Ohisama. "There were many scenes where I wrote letters during the asadora so I think it's because of that." When asked,"Do you write letters to your sweetheart?" she laughed and replied,"There's no one in particular but I'd like to write to someone wonderful."
Other personalities who attended the event included Suzuki Kyoka, Ito Shiro, Okada Takeshi, Tomoyasu Hotei, Nogiwa Yoko and Hirao Seiji. Kuroki Meisa, who was unable to attend, relayed a video message.
Fringe and new hair colour. Miss seeing the shiny forehead :) But what the heck is she wearing? It looks like leftover cloth stitched haphazardly together.
