Something about Arashi :)



* Arashi - Jun Matsumoto * :)
  • Jun is one of the few talents that got into Johnny’s without an audition
  • He decided to join Johnny’s because his sister liked Kinki Kids. (He did, too)
  • At the time of Arashi’s debut, Jun was named “Comedy Leader”… that idea has pretty much died now
  • Jun has a huge ring collection that makes it painful to give him high-fives
  • Jun used to paint his fingernails; one finger would always be a different color
  • He talks to himself at home; he says “Tadaima” (I’m home) when he walks through the door
  • Jun (not Riida) does the ‘ganbaru’ cheer before concerts
  • Out of all the members, Jun seems to change his hairstyle the most
  • Jun wants to buy a pet dog
  • Jun is really obsessed with his health.
  • He took his work very seriously even in his Junior Days when he would spend time stretching instead of goofing off
  • Of all the members he is the most directly involved with planning concerts
  • Jun’s got his fangirl side too and isn’t afraid to show it–Janet Jackson anyone?
  • Whether it comes as a surprise or not, Jun is quite interested in shoujo manga and reads it fairly often
  • Speaking of reading, he’s also a fan of Harry Potter
  • Jun prefers a really private life even when it comes to saying what the color of his curtains are, he’ll usually say, “Normal curtains”.
  • Recently, Jun has not been seen performing backflips, and his proficiency to do so is seriously in question.
  • Jun has a HUGE collection of hats and sunglasses. He wears them all the time so that people won’t notice him in the streets, but they do anyways.
  • He’s expressed an interest in owning a dog like Nino’s (Shiba Inu)
  • When writing text messages or mails, Jun typically includes emoticons and other symbols to give them a “cutesy” flair.
* Arashi -Aiba Masaki * :)



  • Aiba likes experiments. This is proven in his segment on D no Arashi: “A no Arashi”
    • As shown in Odoroki no Arashi, Aiba is intent on proving he can turn invisible with a suit of mirrors
  • He is determined to learn how to speak to animals. He’s gone as far to learn Japanese-tiger-speak.
  • Back in 2002, one of Aiba’s lungs collapsed, and he was hospitalized
  • He’s had his appendix and tonsils removed
  • Aiba used to play the saxophone, but after his surgery, he had to stop. Now he plays the harmonica and guitar
  • Nino and Aiba went home in the same direction together when they were on Johnny’s Jr.
    • Once when they were going home together, Aiba forgot to get on the train with Nino
  • Aiba (at least used to) have a stuffed animal. You can see him snuggling with it in the waking up segment of “Stand Up Hawaii”
  • Everything happens to Aiba. He has tons of stories of hilarious things happening to him, like getting hit by a baseball while watching a game
  • He is very proud of where he comes from: he mentions that he grew up in Chiba as much as possible
  • Sakuraiba once wore matching underwear to a filming of MMA
  • Aiba still has (and wears) Nino’s underwear from who knows how long ago
  • At the time of the debut, Aiba was the only member that didn’t have a “Leader” role
  • Aiba doesn’t read shoujo manga because the eyes scare him
  • Aiba messes up a lot when reading kanji. He tends to freak out when he reads hard words on variety shows.
  • Aiba tends to be the only member that isn’t called by a nickname by fans at concerts. Fans say “Aiba! Aiba!!!”
  • When he was a kid, Aiba wanted to be a pro-wrestler. He got to practice with his brother
  • The first time he went golfing, Aiba went with Shimura Ken (from Tensai!). After that he was hooked.
  • Aiba likes taking walks at night to think
  • He originally applied for Johnny’s because he thought he would get to play basketball with SMAP
  • During nursery school, Aiba participated in a sleepover at school, but got so lonely that he walked home in the middle of the night.
* Arashi -Ninomiya Kazunari* :)

  • While he’s very dedicated to gaming, he won’t necessarily turn on his computer everyday
  • He is the first Johnny’s talent to be cast in a Hollywood movie
  • His magic obsession started accidentally when he rented an instructional DVD about magic just for fun
  • Seasickness is one of his worst enemies and he avoids boats whenever possible
  • Of all animals, he has expressed the most interest in having a penguin for a pet
  • Nino had written in his diaries, Game Nikki which later became Game Nikki X, every single day since they were started
  • He was born left-handed, but is now ambidextrous
    • While doing a backflip, he landed on his left hand incorrectly and shattered a majority of the bones
    • Due to the injury’s severity, he was forced to develop use of his right hand
  • Before Arashi debuted, Nino was thinking about leaving Johnny’s to study directing and film-making
    • He even had the money and was already planning on leaving
  • He was bullied when he was a kid
  • Nino and Aiba went home in the same direction together when they were on Johnny’s Jr.
  • He believes in love at first sight
  • Nino has composed and written the lyrics to some of his songs.
  • He primarily plays the guitar and piano, though he’s also demonstrated some skill with the bass, drums, and harmonica
  • His claimed record for longest game-time is 48 hours
  • He tends to exaggerate during a lot of his interviews. e.g. “I listen to music 48 hours a day”
  • There was a time when he used to refer to his fans as “Ninomimania”
  • Nino is the first Johnny’s talent to win an individual Galaxy Award, similar to an Emmy in the United States
  • Ogu-san once said that when they went out, instead of parking in front of the mall, Nino would go to a parking lot 15 minutes farther because it’s 50 yen cheaper.
  • Nino (and his family) had a Shiba Inu dog named Haru, who apparently passed on around the time the “My Girl” PV was filmed.
* Arashi -Ohno Satoshi (LEADER)* :)


  • His goal when he was a kid was to own a bakery
  • Ohno is amazing at art in general, and even had his own exhibition
  • He’s the shortest member in Arashi ^^
  • He once got so drunk that he blacked out. When he woke up, he was in a stranger’s house, and never found out who it was.
  • He plays Wii sports with his family and his dad’s colleague.
  • Apparently none of Arashi has been to his house before.
  • Ohno being called an ‘old man’ dates back to Arashi’s first episode on Heyx3
  • When Nino went to America to film Letters from Iwo Jima, Riida gave him 5,000 yen. (About 50 US dollars)
  • His mother has played video games with Nino
  • He’s the only member in Arashi without a driver’s license
  • He cuts his own hair
  • Riida goes deep-sea fishing late at night, after work
    • He once fished for so long, his captain kicked him off the boat
  • Ohno practices his acting facial expressions in the bathroom mirror… naked
  • He’s been in the most stage plays out of all of the members… but no movies
  • Ohno is very close to his mom. He’s even called her during filming.
  • Ohno once had a pet hamster that he loved so much, he cried when it died.
  • When Ohno had decided to finally quit Johnny’s because he had gotten interested in other things, he consulted Nino and told him he wanted to work in a host club.
  • Before telling Johnny he wanted to quit, Johnny sent Ohno to Hawaii to ‘help out’ with a recording. When he got to Hawaii, it turned out to be a press conference for their debut. Johnny tricked him to debut with Arashi.
  • Before Arashi, Johnny approached Ohno and asked him if he wanted to play volleyball. When Ohno refused, he went on to ask Okada Junichi, who accepted the offer and then debuted with V6 shortly after.
* Arashi -Sakurai Sho* :)



  • Sho writes most of the raps for Arashi songs
  • He has a fear of heights. Apparently he’s good up to 15 meters, but after that he starts getting scared. Concerts where he hangs at 40 meters is NG
  • His favorite colors are black, white, and red
  • Sho likes soba. A lot.
  • His left ear and bellybutton are pierced, but he no longer appears to wear jewelry in the piercings.

    • He did kendo at school for a mere 3 months
    • He played rugby for about two years
    • Cram School
    • Piano
    • Softball (grade school)
    • His main sport was soccer (He thought seriously about studying in Brazil)
  • Arashi always mentions that since Sho started working for News Zero, he’s always seen reading newspapers in their dressing room.
  • Aiba once mentioned that Sho always wears sweats that look like fake jeans in private
  • Sho fractured his thumb during the Dream “A” Live Tour.
  • Back in the day, Sho had some anger issues that showed up as anger towards his fans.
  • Even though Sho’s arms look muscular, he actually has some strength issues
    • He can’t do acrobatics (like backflips) to save his life
    • He looks like a dead fish while doing yoga
    • He lost to Nino (yes, the toothpick) in arm wrestling

  • He uses a Mac for News Zero <3
  • At the time of Arashi’s debut, he was named “Study Leader”
  • Sho admits to grinding his teeth when he sleeps, and though he’s not ashamed of it, he is aware that it might bothersome for others
  • As a child Sho was forbidden from eating mikan because it made him pee a lot
