After beginning her career as a photo model, Rena Murakami made her AV debut in 1988. In addition to her AV career, she starred in V-Cinema and Pink films as well as mainstream drama series, and did nude modeling in magazines and photobooks.
Following her adult videos’ popularity in Hong Kong, she moved there around 1990 or 1991 to work as a stripper. From there, she got acting roles in Hong Kong’s “Category III” movies, during the genre’s brief popular explosion with Sex and Zen (1991) and Escape from the Brothel (1992) being among of them. Around 1993 she moved back to Japan and worked at the famous Asakusa strip theatre Rokku-za. Rena caused a minor scandal when news leaked that she had sex with the Sultan of Brunei during his visit to Japan in 1993. Sultans have all the fun.
