Provided below is the translated message of Maki for her fans and the public which was written on the day of her marriage itself.
"It's a personal matter, but I, Horikita Maki, registered my marriage with Yamamoto Koji-san on August 22nd.
Please forgive me for making this sudden announcement in writing.
I met Yamamoto-san through work about 6 years ago, but it wasn't until we co-starred in the stage play 'Arashigaoka' that I learned about his personality and became attracted to him. As we began thinking about spending our lives together, our relationship developed into marriage.
We are still inexperienced and immature, but we ask for your continued guidance and encouragement.
