Takako Matsu biography (bio):
Takako Matsu is a Japanese actress and pop singer/songwriter born on June 10, 1977 in Tokyo, Japan. She is noted for the laid-back and relaxing style in her music unlike many Japanese pop artists that have heavier and stronger beats.

She was born into a traditional Buyō house, and her Buyo name is Kōka Matsumoto. Her father is Matsumoto Koshiro IX, kabuki actor and head of the buyo house; her uncle is Nakamura Kichiemon II; her older brother is Ichikawa Zengoro VII; her sister, six years her elder is Kiyo Matsumoto. Her mother's name is Noriko Matsumoto. She selected her last name as Matsu to honor her parents. In one interview, she notes that she and her two brothers are relatively close to her mother. Her highest education is Asia University, which she did not graduate.

Takako's debut in a theater was when she was sixteen years old, in Ninjo Hanashi Bun Nana Motoyu (Emotions Inscribed in Seven Hair-tying Paper Cords) at Tokyo Kabuki-za in 1993. Her first lead role in television is NHK Drama Hana no Ran (War of Roses) in 1994. Afterwards, she increased in succession the number of leadrole appearances in theater and television drama, becoming preeminent as a young actress.
Moreover, because Shirayuri Gakuen, the high school Matsu enrolled in, strictly prohibited entertainment industry, she transferred to Horietsu High School citing obstruction to her work. At that time, Tsuyoshi Domoto of Kinki Kids, two years her younger, was at the school and remarks, "Matsu was excellent".

In drama Long Vacation, which she played a lead role in 1996 following matriculating to college, she became popular as "the woman who dumped Kimutaku (Takuya Kimura of SMAP)". Since the drama was a major hit, she began to establish in full-scale her position as an actress. In the same year, as the youngest ever at the age of 19, she hosted Kōhaku Uta Gassen, making 1996 a year of rapid progress for her. She is also well-known for acting with Takuya Kimura in another drama in the same period, Love Generation, which Matsu Takako acts as the female lead-role in.
In 1997, she made her debut as a songwriter and singer, expanding her activity beyond the acting realm. She has worked with many different producers, but in her third album, Itsuka, Sakura no Ame ni... , she is noted for working on every song (either composing the melody or lyrics) on the album becoming her most successful album recorded with Universal Music up to date. As of now, she has released nineteen singles and ten albums (of which, seven are original studio albums), achieving success as a singer also. In other works, she published through Asahi Shinbun Publishers Matsu no Hitorigoto (Matsu Talks to Herself), a photo essay book.
Many of her lead roles in television dramas are in FujiTV (FNN) and Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS).
Toki no Fune, released September 2004, was composed by the Japanese singer Akeboshi. It's very similar to his song A nine days' wonder, the song was released after the Toki no Fune single. Apart from the lyrics and a few small changes in the melody, A nine days' wonder is almost like an English cover of Toki no Fune. The single also contains a cover of Akeboshi's White reply previously recorded on her sixth album, harvest songs.
In late 2004, Takako was told that she had won the Best Actress of the Year by her manager, she was so happy and said to have remarked "I am fortunate to have been born a Japanese". Her manager later said, "She normally dont show so much emotions for an award that I was taken aback."
In July 2006, Matsu and Kimura starred in a special one night edition of Hero. While a remake of this drama has been refused for years, some believed that recent surge of white collar crimes and arrests such as that of Livedoor president Takafumi Horie had inspired the need for a special production.
In October 2006, Matsu was in a weekly drama for the first time in over three years titled "Yakusha Damashii" for FNN alongside 73-year old actor Makoto Fujita, a family friend. While Fujita was quite excited at his first work with Matsu, she stated earlier that she was quite attracted by his performance ability.

In May 2007, Matsu kicked off her third concert tour to commemorate her tenth year as a singer. In her Tokyo stop on June 21st, she reflected that although it has been a decade, it is not appropriate for her to compare against other artists who have done nothing but music in the same time period. She also performed the keyboard to the song "A Piece of Life" in a duet with a violinist. In releasing her latest album, "I Cherish" earlier in the year, the song "Ashita Haru ga Kitara" was redone to combine Matsu's voice as a 20 year old with her current one. From fans who attended the concerts, some famous people were there including singer/songwriter Maria Takeuchi and actress Eriko Sato.

Trivia:
* According to Apple Daily, she paid about $800,000 in income taxes in 2004.
* In an interview on July 2006 for Sankei Sports, she implied if it were not for the intimidating and harsh experience of her piano teacher, she may had become a professional pianist.
* She is also said to be one of the most famous heavy smokers within the Japanese entertainment industry. As a result, she is believed to be the source of criticism by Yomiuri Giants and New York Yankee athlete Hideki Matsui. (Of late she is said to have quit smoking successfully.)
* After breaking up with a 42 year old guitarist, her third publicized relationship, she is believed to be now dating 33 year old actor Yoo Ooizumi.
* Many of her jobs were acting jobs, and she has not worked as a swimsuit model a single time. In fact, when idol Otoha cried because she was too embarrassed to wear a swimsuit, Otohas staff apparently stated, "The only idol who does not need to wear a swimsuit is Takako Matsu."
* Her song "WIND SONG" was used as the theme to the anime movie Jungle Emperor Leo.
* She attended the same high school and had a class with singer Ayumi Hamasaki according to ayuready? episode 20.
