But, what's even more fascinating about Nijiro is the fact that he shares the same last name as the famous Japanese author, Haruki Murakami. Could it be that Nijiro and the writer might share some blood relationship too?
Sure, Nijiro and Haruki do share the same surname. The duo, however, has never been spotted together in public. And, since Nijiro is the son of actor Jun Murakami, it clearly states that Nijiro and Haruki have no son-and-father relationship.
And, to clarify more, Mr. Haruki, on the other hand, shares no children with his wife, Yoko Murakami. As of January 2021, neither Nijiro nor Haruki has ever spoken about any kind of relationship between them. Thus, it speaks that the two are not related.
