A Japanese billionaire is looking for a ‘someone special ’ to accompany him on a journey into space.

According to the details, Yusaku Maezawa, 42, is planning to take part in the first-ever tourist trip around the moon in 2023 aboard one of Elon Musk’s rockets.

In a statement, he wrote: ‘I have lived exactly as I’ve wanted to up until now. For 21 years, I’ve been working running around as a company president, causing lots of people to worry along the way, but also receiving a lot of love and support from people, too.

‘I’m sure I’ve been able to acquire my share of money, social status, and fame along the way. But now I’m restarting my life.

Maezawa said he initially felt both “embarrassment and pride” and actually considered rejecting Musk’s offer but decided to accept after realizing the opportunity might not come around again.

He said the decision prompted him to “seriously face up to the idea of continuing to love one woman,” something he had previously only had a “hazy image” about.

The retail mogul added that he wanted to “shout our love and world peace from outer space” with his future partner.
