After sharing $9m on social media, Japanese billionaire hunts for girlfriend to take on trip to moon

After sharing $925,000 on socila media to see if money will make people happy, Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa is now looking for a female "life partner" to accompany him on Space X's maiden tourist voyage to the Moon.

The fashion mogul, 44, is set to be the first civilian passenger to fly around the moon on the Starship rocket.

Planned for 2023, the mission will be the first lunar journey by humans since 1972.

In an online appeal, Mr Maezawa says he wants to share the experience with a "special" woman.


The entrepreneur, who recently split up from actress girlfriend Ayame Goriki, 27, has asked women to apply for a "planned match-making event" on his website.

"As feelings of loneliness and emptiness slowly begin to surge upon me, there's one thing that I think about: Continuing to love one woman," Mr Maezawa wrote on the website.

"I want to find a 'life partner'," Mr Maezawa added. "With that future partner of mine, I want to shout our love and world peace from outer space."

The website features a list of conditions and a schedule for the three-month long application process.
