Shihomi Yoshino poses topless in the shower but no one’s looking at her breasts.

From acting like a cat to playing J-Pop medleys on the piano in your underwear, there are so many beauties on the gravure modelling scene in Japan that women often have to go to extreme lengths to make themselves stand out and get noticed by fans.

One woman currently blowing her competition out of the water is a gravure idol called Shihomi Yoshino, whose Instagram and Twitter accounts are filled with raunchy images.

Recently, though, the model decided to let fans into her bathroom for a very different kind of reveal, with this unusual tweet.

“This is a gravure idol’s bathtub.”

After the surprising peek into her bathroom went viral, garnering over 60,000 likes and 25,000 retweets, Yoshino decided to step into the bathtub herself to try her hand at a “dried fish gravure photo shoot”.

It appears the fishy photo shoot went down a treat, with the images receiving 25,000 likes, and according to Yoshino, this isn’t just a one-off grab at attention, as the gravure idol actually has a real passion for fish and fishing.

And in response to people wondering what her bathroom smells like, Yoshino says it’s not a problem at all, as she prepared the fish properly beforehand. And proving she knows what she’s doing when it comes to drying fish, Yoshino has provided us all with this handy bit of information.

“Completely remove the innards and bloody bits near the spine. I use a toothbrush to scrape away all the unnecessary bits. Then, boil the fish in a litre of water with 150 grams of salt, two tablespoons of sugar, and some herbs (this time I used bay leaf and basil) before leaving it overnight to marinate.”

Despite her instructions on how to dry fish of your own at home, many commenters showed more of an interest in the dried fish themselves.

“I want these dried fish”.

“I want to be this fish.”

Given the love she’s received for her fishy bathroom, Yoshino is now carving out a very special niche of her own that’s tied up with her unusual passion for fish, and she’s even proudly changed her profile photo to this one below.

It’s not every day that a gravure idol gets to combine her hobby with a photo shoot, so we can’t wait to see what other fishy photos we’ll see from Yoshino in future. Perhaps one day she’ll team up for a meal with Mana Amano, the bikini model known for her love of beer-drinking. Now that’s a photo shoot collaboration we’d love to see!
