Tomomi Itano: A Singer That Is Very Cute

Tomomi Itano may very well be the definition of cute. Look up the word cute in the dictionary and that word describes her perfectly. This Japanese beauty entered the world on July 3, 1991 and has one younger sister. A native of Kanagawa Japan, Tomomi often appears in photo shoots with former AKB48 member Atsuko Maeda. Tomomi is currently signed to and under contract with Horipro. Others call her Tomochin. She loves to dance. Once again, I will try and write the song titles in English so that readers can understand. Tomomi has such a pure face, angelic when you look at it. She is really, really, pretty! On second thought, I think Itano has a big cuteness factor
