The billionaire plans to bring six to eight artists with him on the mission, People reported.
If all goes according to plan, Maezawa will be the first non-American to orbit the moon.
SpaceX founder and chief executive Elon Musk outlined a somewhat different mission a year ago.
Maezawa recently has been dating Japanese actress Ayame Goriki. A video presentation about him said he believes art can help usher in world peace. According to Forbes, the state Mousavi is estimated at $ 2.9 billion.
"If you hear from me, please say yes", the Japanese tycoon pleaded.
SpaceX put out the teaser via Twitter late Thursday, and Musk also tweeted out the news.
"This has done a lot to restore my faith in humanity - that somebody's willing to do this", Musk said. He also desires to take the artists with him to convert the entire trip into an art project that will be known as #dearMoon. The mission is set for 2023, if all goes well. He takes the 18th place in the ranking of the richest Japanese. Last year, he announced the acquisition of a Jean-Michel Basquiat masterpiece worth $110.5 million.

Will one of Apple's new iPhones be your next smartphone?
The selfie camera on the front of the phones is 7 megapixels and uses TrueDepth to, well, increase depth perception. We're living in a world where Android devices have gone full screen with under-display cameras and sensors.
The BFR (which stands for "Big Falcon Rocket", or "Big F-- Rocket") is created to help humanity settle Mars and other worlds throughout the solar system, Musk has said. Maezawa has invited Musk along on his flight to the moon.
The diminutive Maezawa, who as a young man struggled to find clothes that fit, hopes to revolutionize the fashion industry through his Zozosuit, which, once donned, allows users to upload their body measurements and order a growing number of made-to-measure items.
"Ever since I was a kid, I have loved the moon". The BFR is expected to begin testing next year.
The BFR will stand about 387 feet (118 meters) tall, and both its rocket and spaceship components will be reusable. The new design, he added, "might be better", but "it's slightly riskier technically". The test flight will be conducted a month after the most recent dates announced by NASA.
The first space tourist pointed out that he already paid for the reservation of all the seats on the SpaceX BFR rocket. Now, perhaps it's about the next stage in human spaceflight-and maybe, the beauty.
SpaceX investor and private astronaut, Richard Garriott, who spent 11 days visiting the International Space Station, in 2008, said those who were aboard the spacecraft would experience the "overview effect" - a profound shift in perspective when seeing Earth from space.
Scott Kelly knows a thing or two about space travel.
He made headlines in 2016 when he paid more than $57 million at auction for an untitled work by Basquiat. Blue Origin's price has not been revealed.
