Blood Type: O

Family Info: He has a brother, named Shunsaku, who is about 7-8 years younger than him. Later on, when Takuya was about 14-15 years old, his father became very ill. Being the oldest male after his father, Takuya was the one to take care of his mother and brother during this time.

Marital Status: He is currently married to Shizuka Kudo, a popular singer back in the 1980's. They have been married since the year 2000 and now have two daughters by the names of Kokomi (2001) and Mitsuki (2003).

Talent Agency: Kimura is signed under Johnny & Associates, also known in Japan as Johnny's Jimusho. They're an agency that is exceptionally known for organizing and promoting male idol groups. Currently, many popular groups (also often referred to as Japanese Boy Bands) are signed with Johnny's Jimusho, including SMAP, Arashi, KAT-TUN, Tokio, V6, and more.

Brief Background: Although Kimura Takuya is best known today as one of the greatest and most famous Japanese actor of his generation, he is probably better described as an all-around superstar/idol. He is, after all, also well-known for being a part of SMAP, the popular J-Pop group that's been around since 1988. On top of that, he's also done quite a bit of modeling. And you can be sure that no matter what he does, he ends up topping charts and popularity polls!

If Kimura stars in a Japanese drama series, it's almost a guarantee that it will receive very high ratings. In fact, the current top three "most watched" series of all time in Japan are Hero, Beautiful Life, and Good Luck! - all of which he plays a leading role in. Other super popular J-Drama he's starred in are: Pride, Love Generation, and Long Vacation, among many many more.

In short, whatever he does ends up bringing a whole wave of fans towards it. The most interesting thing I've personally noticed, is how it seems he's a guy that even males idolize. In fact, I suspect that some of my male friends are even bigger fans of Takuya than some girls out there! :D
