It was widely believed that she was adopted at the age of three by an American couple. On the assumption that they took her with th em when they returned to to The USA, the song Akai Kutsu (Red Shoes) will be written about her by the poet Ujo Noguchi and the composer Nagayo Motōri. The song will become hugely popular in Japan but, in fact, Kimi Iwasaki never left Japan, because she died of tuberculosis at the age of nine, which she had contracted before her adoptive parents returned home.
