One chilly night in March, Mikako Tabe (25) and Masataka Kubota (25) were seen walking hand in hand. It was 11 at night, the two were walking slowly at a luxurious residential area in town. Kubota who was wearing a hooded down jacket was carrying a convenience store bag in one hand while holding Tabe's hand on the other inside his pocket. The two disappeared into a high-end apartment building afterwards.
The couple were caught by FRIDAY in May 2014. Some media outlets reported that the couple split up afterwards, but this recent eyewitness report happened right in front of Tabe's own home. It seems that the two have nurtured their relationshipall along. They have also been seen a number of times shopping together in a nearby grocery.
A witness comments: "The two of them looked like a married couple no matter how you looked at them. While shopping, they were asking each other what they'll be having for the day as they shopped for the ingredients and chose some wine."
Kubota was in last year's Monday-9 drama SUMMER NUDE. He will also be in next month's NHK morning drama Hanako to Anne as Yuriko Yoshitaka's childhood friend.
Tabe has previously said that she would like to get married in her 20s.

They look good together
I found out that they look like each other after Googling their pictures, and they really look good together
Tabe isn't that cute, but I can't get to hate her for some reason
They really look good with each other. I like them both.
- 結婚しても人気が落ちるとか全く気にしなくていい二人そういう対象ではないというかなんというかThese 2 don't even have to care about their popularity declining once they get married.
It's like they're not seen in that light, or something.
...I'm just going to lie face down a bit
- まぁいいんじゃないの25歳だし結婚して早く子供作ればいいじゃんThis isn't bad, I'd say.
She's 25. She should just get married and make a kid already.
Spring comes to Tabe-chan
It's pretty rare seeing a couple that no one gets jealous of w
If it's Kubota, I'm giving my approval
- 窪田って腐女子に人気ありそうそしてたべちゃんは腐女子っぽいｗI get the feeling that Kubota's popular with the fujoshis
And Tabe-chan looks like a fujoshi herself w
Women who date presidents or doctors feel like prostitutes, but people who go out with guys they meet at work or those who do not work in the industry have very good images
M-m-my Tabe-chan, is s-still a v-v-virgin... definitely
I didn't know who the guy was so I got surprised after searching him when I saw that they actually look alike
- これはお似合いがんがれ！They really look good together.
Do your best!
- ２０代のうちに結婚したいって、今どき堅気な娘さんだなあお子さんを二人は生んでほしい応援するSuch a respectable lady for wanting to marry while she's still in her 20s.
I hope they have about 2 kids.
I'll be rooting for them.
- この二人が並んでるの想像するとなんかほっこりするこんなに好感の持てる芸能人カップルも珍しいwSeeing these 2 together kinda gives you a nice, warm feeling.
It's rare to have a showbiz couple who are this likable. w
It would probably last long if it's Kubota-kun.
I think that these 2 should hurry up and get married.
Go ahead and get married already.
