Takachi made his debut in 1993 as an actor using the name Takachi Tokyu but was sued by Tokyu Corporation under the Unfair Competition Prevention laws and had to change his name to Takachi Noboru. He was previously married to another celebrity Aida Momo between 1991 and 1996 and remarried Takashima in 1999. Takachi has been out of the limelight for some time and retired from showbiz last autumn. He was said to be caring for Takashima's father who is suffering from Parkinson's and had also opened a estellon in Yokohama City.
In response to her husband's arrest, Takashima released a fax statement through her agency where she apologised for the inconvenience and worry caused by her husband's case. She revealed that she only knew about the arrest through the media reports and was in shock over this. As the facts of the case will be known gradually as the investigation progresses, she called upon everyone to wait over them in the meantime and apologised for this note she had to write at such short notice.
