Hitomi Shimatani’s personal life happens to be obscured from all of her fans. Most of her professional career is fairly common knowledge for everyone, but little is known about her family, friends and relationships. Unlike artists like Ayumi Hamasaki, most of her musical releases seem to be disconnected from her own inner feelings and life.
Although Hitomi is talkative and friendly, she is usually happy enough to speak about her career only. Apart from the rumored relationship with Koizumi Kotaro, Hitomi rarely was the target of tabloids and is free from any scandals.
