Yamapi, a beatiful boy with lonely eyes.
I would like to see him more smiling. it looks better on him.
.

.

when he was little, like an angel absolutely!

Yamapi now, looks mature a little

.

.
from “Byakko-tai” , a TV drama of historical tragedy, broadcasted in 2007. Byakko-tai is a tloop consisting of young men of 16 or 17 years old , belong
to the Aizu domain in the Tohoku region.
They fought a brave battle against the new Meiji government for their domein’s surviving .But they could not stop the tide and defeated.
They did seppuku at the end of the story. Yamapi played a role of Sakai Mineji who happened to survive because he was separated from his group in the middle of the battle. Though he was not so good at acting ,the dorama is full of his charm, I think.

appeared on TV program for promoting “byakko-tai

from the dorama “Nobuta wo produce” in 2005.
when I think back, the dorama triggered Yamapi‘s high popularity.
It seemed that Kamenashi Kzuya, a member of Katt-un, and Yamapi made a perfect combination in it.
Kamenashi acted as a high school student who had leadership but
a kind of ego-driven person. Yamapi was his intimate friend who is something weird but funny and charming. I personally like this role best in all his dorama characters.
Kamenashi & Yamapi sang it’s tama song, too and it is became a huge
hit, sold 1.6 million copies in total.

a scene from “Code Bule“. He did a rle of a young doctor who was very capable but had dark past. This is more a medical drama depicting young physicians’ growth than only a drama featuring Yamapi.

these pictures are from a quick preview of “Ashita no Joe
this is Yamapi’s film to be released next spring, a live-action version of popular
manga featured from the 1970s.
The manga is so loved that the fans held a real funeral with grief when one of
charactors in it died in the story

My favorite pictures again.
These CGs are drawn by Watashi-san, the casual sceneries of local streets
in the Kansai region(maybe) of Japan.
I feel something that seems familiar when I am watching these .
Row of houses, tiled roofs, old woman with overall apron walking alleyway. telephone poles and wires, low eaves. silhouettes at dark… the scenes any Japanese knows. I also like their quiet tones of color.

From the late July to September the summer festival is held all around Japan.
Each shrine has its own festival once a year, attended by the people in the area and served by numerous stalls selling a variety of things.
People also enjoy Obon dancing, or Bon odori there.

Thus the people have a deep relationship with shrines, but the majority of Japanese have no interest in the tenets of Shinto, and the influence of the religion on the thought of the Japanese of today is small

ARASHI is the most popular Jhonny’s idol group now in japan consisting of
5 cute guys.They are expected to succeed to SMAP who have been top-of-the-line entertainer in Japan for so long.
.
.
.

Ninomiya Kazunari
He has appeard in lots of dramas and has played with Watanabe Ken in the
Hollywood war film “Letters from Iwo Jima” directed by Clint Eastwood.
He played a young japanese soldier in it and the battle was portrayed
through the soldier’s eyes.
.
.
.

Matsumoto Jun
Everyone admits he is handsome.He also has appeared in many dramas
and movies so far.
Now he is playing a struggling actor in the drama ,as it called Getsu 9,
titled ”夏の恋は虹色に輝く”(A summer romance sparkles with the colors of
the rainbow)
The word “Getsu 9 ” represents a drama that is broadcasted from 9:00pm
to 10:00pm on every Monday at FujiTV.
As there usually the most popular actor or actresse of the time has
appeared in, almost all Getsu 9 dramas have been successful at getting
high popularity and ratings. So it is very honor for new young actor and actress to play a lead in the getsu 9.

By the way, Getsu 9 is 月9 in Kanji. ”月” is short for “月曜日”, a word for Monday, and ”9” is ”9:00″, the starting time of the drama.
So ”月9(Getsu9)” is ”MONDAY9″
The drama ever have been called it’s nickname “Getsu 9 ” with
expectation and praise by Japanese audience.

This is the first time that any member of Arashi plays a starring lole in the Getsu9. It is for sure an indication of moving up in their career.
.

Sakurai Sho
He is famous as a well-educated Jhonny’s idol. Genrally it is still rare for
Jhonny’s idol to go up to a prestigious University. So the people would be
curious on him a bit. He performs a job of newscaster like
on the NTV‘s news program everyday at night besides his regular work as
an idol.

.
.
.

Ohno Satoshi
He likes fishing and seems to be a person who want to enjoy the slow life
in nature. His optimistic easygoing attitude may be preferred by ordinary
people.
.
.
.

Aiba Masaki
He mostly apperes in TBS’s variety program ”志村どうぶつ園(Shimura
Zoo) )”as a regular performer.The program shows such small cute
animals as dogs, cats,monkeys and penguins.He often has a romp with
the dog or monkey cheerfully in the program.
As a whole no Arashi member is so much greedy for everything.
They all seems to be of good will and get along very well.
I think this is one big reason why arashi has come to be such popular
in Japan though any member doesn’t look particularly have distinctive
ability or strong appeal.
