Nikaido Fumi & Arai Hirofumi reported to have broken up
Nikaido Fumi and Arai Hirofumi are said to have gone their separate ways, as reported on 27 Nov. The couple who are 16 years apart in age, met on the set of the movie "Himizu" which was released in Jan 2012 and soon started dating. In March last year, they were first romantically linked to each other and were caught by the tabloids on a yakiniku date in June the same year. However, according to insiders, the couple decided to go their separate ways after being together for two and a half years because of their differing views towards marriage. As Arai is going to be 36 next Jan, he was said to have the intention to marry Nikaido and had introduced her to his parents. On the other hand, Nikaido made it to Keio University this year after taking the entrance exams as a repeat student and is very busy with her acting career these days thus had no intention to get married yet.
