Birthplace Discrepancies in Japanese Wikipedia

Okay, so to speak…

Masato Sakai was born in Miyazaki, Japan (it is located in Kyushu island), but according to Japanese Wikipedia, he was born in Kobe.

Ryoko Hirosue was born in Kōchi City (Shikoku island), but according to Japanese Wikipedia, she was born in Yokohama.

Rosa Kato was born (according to most sources) in Naples, Italy, yet again, according to Japanese Wikipedia, she was born in Yokohama City then grew up in Kagoshima.

This is in the same situation as Namie Amuro. According to her agency, she is 1/4 Italian, but in reality, this has NEVER been confirmed at all. As a matter of fact, Japanese talent agencies are really good in hiding the most confidential information of many celebrities. I bet, Becky might have been born in Igirisu rather than in Nihon (Kanagawa, in particular).

Hmm… somehow, this makes me think that Japanese celebrities are really keen in securing their privacy very well. Not even a single information about them could be leaked, as compared to American celebrities.

Well, there’s one case of an American celebrity born somewhere outside America. We all know that most American celebrities are an OPEN BOOK, as compared to their Japanese counterparts. The late Marcheline Bertrand is said to be born in Paris, France, but she was actually born in Illinois (according to Wikipedia).

We all know that Natalie Portman was really born in Jerusalem. We also know that Martin Lawrence was born in Germany. We all know that Rovilson Fernandez was born in Sasebo, Nagaski and we all know that Nicole Kidman was born in Hawaii.

However, why are information regarding Japanese celebrities disputed? For instance, Ryo Nishikido. He was born in Osaka according to most sources, but according to Japanese Wikipedia, he was born in Hyogo Prefecture.

What do you think, guys? TASUKETE KUDASAI!

PS: I really sense that people could hide the truth through money alone. Remember, if you watch Joker: Unforgiving Investigators (Joker: Yurusarezaru Sousakan), you’ll see how information here is white-washed. Even the secrets of the Cojuangco-Aquino family (not related to the drama) cannot also be revealed since even other branches have white-washed the truth about them.

  1. I’m not sure but isn’t it that wikipedia an open resource? I mean it’s not very a reliable source. Maybe they placed it there to confuse? :/ I’m not sure though.
