She went on, "When I held my first fan handshake event back in Japan, this man came and told me, 'I'm rooting for you.' As soon as I shook his hand, I knew, 'This man is my dad.' I felt it right away."
SAKURA"As I was thinking that the man was my dad, the next person in line was a woman, my grandmother. She suddenly asked my, 'Don't you remember us?' So I knew that the man really was my father."
