Miyuki Hatoyama

Miyuki Hatoyama (鳩山幸, Hatoyama Miyuki?, born 1943 Shanghai, China) is the wife of Prime Minister of Japan Yukio Hatoyama. Hatoyama, originally an actress by profession, describes herself as "constantly curious" and a "life composer," who pursues a variety of interests, including a stylist, interior designer and cookbook author.[1]

In an interview, then Prime Minister-designate Yukio Hatoyama credited Miyuki with his professional success and praised her enthusiasm.[1] Hatoyama has indicated that Miyuki will take an unusually prominent role for a Japanese First Lady during his administration.[2]



Early life

Hatoyama was born in Shanghai, China, in 1943 while the city was under Japanese occupation during World War II. [3] She was raised in the Japanese city of Kobe.[3]


Hatoyama was an actress in the all-female Takarazuka Revue during the 1960s.[1] She quit the troupe and her stage career when she was in her mid-20s and moved to the United States.[3]

Hatoyama has authored a number of cookbooks. Among her books authored is Spiritual Food, which focuses on Hawaiian macrobiotic recipes.[3] She just recently published another book titled Very Strange Things I've Encountered. In the book, she claims "While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus... It was a very beautiful place, and it was very green."[4][5] She wrote that her ex-husband told her it was "probably just a dream" but that Yukio would "surely say, 'Oh, that's great.'"[4][6]

Marriage and family

Miyuki met her future husband, Yukio Hatoyama, in San Francisco, California, while Yukio was a student at Stanford University.[3] Miyuki and Yukio married in 1975, after Miyuki divorced her previous husband,[3] a restaurateur.[7] The couple has one son, Kiichiro, who is currently an engineering researcher studying in Russia.[1]

Personal life

Hatoyama often appears on Japanese talk shows, discussing a range of topics including food, religion and politics.[1][8] She has listed her interests as picking vegetables, pottery and creating art from stained glass.[1] Hatoyama recently appeared on a Japanese talk show wearing a shirt made from coffee sacks which she acquired in Hawaii.[1] In another interview, she claimed that she knew Tom Cruise in a former incarnation – when he was Japanese – and is now looking forward to making a Hollywood movie with him. "I believe he'd get it if I said to him, 'Long time no see', when we meet."[4] She has also claimed to "eat the sun" every day to gain energy.[7] and that her "soul went to Venus while her "body was asleep". [1][8]

She has served as her husband's chief stylist and image coordinator during his political career and campaign during the 2009 general election.[3] Hatoyama coordinates what her husband wears for public events and styles his hair.[3]
