Reon Kadena かでなれおん

Reon Kadena (かでなれおん Kadena Reon?) (born February 19, 1986), also known as Kadena Leon or Minamo Kusano, is a Japanese model and actress. Kadena is a female Japanese idol whose photobooks and films largely feature her in revealing costumes, underwear and bikinis. She used to do naked photography and videos, but as she became well-known, she stopped it.

Reon made her debut as Kusano Minamo in December 2003 at the age of 17 with her first photobook, HHH. It's no mystery as to why she gained a large fanbase almost immediately after its release. Even though Reon was expected to continue in her career as a regular gravure idol, she catered to her fans' wants at the age of 18 by

releasing her first nude photobook, Hadaka no Reon. Reon then continued on as a common gravure idol and chose not to pose nude anymore. Still, fans await her breakthrough into the AV world (she is often compared to Natsume Nana).

Though her true name is unknown, Reon had a variety of aliases before deciding on "Kadena Reon" written in hiragana (かでなれおん). She began as Yurika, then became Kusano Minamo (久紗野水萌), then changed the Japanese spelling of "Minamo" to hiragana (久紗野みなも). Even before her current spelling, she had spelled "Kadena Reon" two different ways (嘉那れおん and かで那れおん).
