Mercury rising: NHK weather nympho doubles up on adultery

Prior to last month, weather presenter Mamiko Okamura had been known around the studio of public broadcaster NHK as the “magical girl.”

The 30-year-old developed such a nickname due to her breezy personality and highly skilled manner for wielding a weather stick, much like a sorceress, during the “News 7” program.

But, according to weekly tabloid Flash (Jan. 20), Okamura possesses a keen talent for playing with a number of long, slender objects, as revelations of her simultaneous affairs with two men reveal.

Okamura, who joined NHK in April of 2011, had been romantically involved with an employee at the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) over a three-year period. Unbeknownst to the JMA employee, Okamura was also seeing Daisuke Sato, a 41-year-old weather forecaster from Tokyo Broadcasting System’s daytime “Hiru Obi” program.

Both of her partners are married with children.

“Sato had a fetish for seeing a woman with another guy,” a person with knowledge of the matter tells Shukan Bunshun (Jan. 1-8), which first broke the story. “He gets excited in imagining his favorite woman having sex with another guy. He badgered Okamura repeatedly about it.”

Finally, she complied.

The JMA employee later learned of the shenanigans, and, angered, he approached Sato at his home. Eventually, the police became involved.

Flash is taken aback by the actions of the seemingly refined Okamura, who is graduate of a national music college and a professional pianist. According to the magazine, she likes Chopin.

“I have loved the sky since I was in elementary school,” she told Flash in a special feature titled “The Weather Sister” that ran in 2011. “I was a like a child staring at the heavens.”

Shukan Bunshun implies that there is something inherently immoral about the employees at NHK. The magazine mentions the case of Sae Nakarai, a former weather anchor on “News 7” who was alleged by sports tabloids to have been engaged in an affair with professional baseball player Yoshinori Tateyama. Okamura replaced Nakarai two months after the revelations.

A number of news outlets have reported that Okamura’s bio was deleted from the NHK Web site before the end of December.

Okamura and Sato are employed by Weather Map, a meteorological information company. When reached for comment by Tokyo Sports (Dec. 30) about Okamura’s status, a representative of the company said, “Her bio was removed on December 29 in order to reduce an overload (as to traffic) to the site. We have not yet decided how to deal with the matter.”

Neither Sato nor Okamura have appeared on their respective networks since the issue of Shukan Bunshun hit newsstands on December 25.

A person in the entertainment industry tells Flash that Okamura’s prospects for landing another forecasting job appear cloudy. “A comeback as a weather presenter is difficult,” says the source. (K.N.)

  1. How did Sato watch them? Apparently he wasn’t in the room with them, as the JMA employee didn’t seem to be aware of it at the time.

    Anyway, I knew I should have gone into meteorology…
