Hitomi Tanaka (田中瞳 Tanaka Hitomi) is a Japanese AV idol, gravure idol, and pink film actress credited as Hitomi in adult videos and pink films to avoid confusion with an earlier AV idol named Hitomi Tanaka. She is well known for her large breasts, Japanese size 97J (about 42H in a US bra size).
Tanaka was born in Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan on July 18, 1986. She debuted as a clothed model in 2007 and appeared in her debut "gravure" (non-nude) video, Hitomi Tanaka Bakunyuu J no Shogeki, in November 2007. As a gravure idol, she was compared to an earlier "big-bust" gravure model, Harumi Nemoto. She has also worked in the softcore movie field, acting in Zen Pictures' low budget V-Cinema Power Rangers parody, Bakunyu Sentai Fiber Star (爆乳戦隊ファイバスター) released on two DVDs in September 2008.
She started her hardcore career as Hitomi in November, 2008 with the video Celebrity Shock AV Debut (芸能人 Hitomi 衝撃のAVデビュー) for the Soft On Demand studio where, rather unusual for Japanese pornography, she performed with her pubic hair fully depilated (a look she kept until her departure from SOD and restored only for a paipan fetish video after this). Her debut videos for SOD were popular enough to elevate her to the #6 ranking in sales for all actresses from the DMM website for the last half of 2008. She continued to be one of the top ranked actresses at DMM in 2009, ranking #27 for the first half of the year and #42 for the full year. She made several more videos for SOD in 2008 and 2009 and in August 2009, the company released Hitomi Premium Collection 8 Hours which included material from all of her previous solo videos.
