Japanese multi-billion dollar is hunting for a partner to travel with him to moon
The hunt for a woman to accompany him on a trip around the moon by the Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa will be the focus of a short documentary series, in the entrepreneur’s newest attn-grabbing trick.
44-year-old Maezawa, who marketed his online fashion store Zozo Inc to SoftBank Group Corp., is searching for single women over 20 years of age for the series that was shown on AbemaTV livestream.
“When feelings of anxiety and sadness slowly start to spring upon me, there’s one thing I’m talking about: learning to love one lady,” Maezawa posted for applicants on a platform.
“I want a ‘ lifelong partner ‘ to be found. I want to shout our love and world peace from outer space with that future partner of mine,” Maezawa acknowledged, who is due to fly across the moon in 2023 as the first confidential passenger with SpaceX from Elon Musk.
Maezawa, who recently separated from actress girlfriend Ayame Goriki, 27, said that in a project he dubbed Dear Moon that he plans to take artists on the flight to inspire experience-based works.

The website states that candidates must “be interested in going into space and be able to take part in preparing for it” and “be someone who wants peace in the world.”
Requirements close on Jan. 17 and from the end of March Maezawa will be picking its associate.
The documentary is the latest strong-profile move by the multimillionaire, who is also going to give his Twitter followers $9 million to try and spark discussion on the merits of the progressive income tax idea in Japan.
