“Special classes” with Arashi at the Tokyo Dome!


Popular group Arashi held a charity event, “Arashi no Wakuwaku Gakkou“, for disaster relief at the Tokyo Dome!

As tokyohive reported previously, each Arashi member became a “teacher” by turns and gave the “students” lectures, making the Tokyo Dome like a big classroom.



The event was held for three days from June 24th to 26th, when it was originally scheduled for Arashi’s live concerts, however, considering its electricity consumption, they changed the plan to a charity event.  Usually their concerts use 2000 kilowatts, but for the event, they reduced it to 830 kilowatts.

The lectures by the members were based on things that are important to consider for Japan now. Ninomiya Kazunari’s lecture was about human body structure and taught the “students” the meaning of living. Matsumoto Jun gave a lecture about electricity and energy. For this lecture, all members tried the generation of electricity using bicycles.  They showed the power that the members saved while getting all sweaty only lasted for 8 seconds when used by a hair dryer. Matsumoto commented, “I hope it made everybody realize how important the electricity was.

On the other hand, Aiba Masaki showed his cooking skills on the stage, and taught how foods are delivered to the consumers.  He pointed out  the large amount of food leftovers in Japan and said, “The way of solving the food shortage is to not waste foods.“  Sakurai Sho’s lecture was titled as “Pachi Pachi no Jugyou”, which taught the importance of praising somebody, and Ohno Satoshi gave a lecture about how miraculous his encounters with people were.  Ohno stated, “Words are the biggest device to create a link between people.  Everybody, please tell ‘Arigatou’ a lot to your precious people.



At the beginning of the event, the fans were just screaming at Arashi, however, they gradually started to devour the lectures, and there were fans who were taking notes on the lectures.

With this big success, Arashi members said that they would like to hold this kind of event again.

The event pulled a total of 225,000 people in three days, and they will donate 200 million yen (approximately 2,486,943 USD) through Marching J.

Arashi's Tears ('07 Magazine Interview)

Source: http://www.ohnosatoshi.cn/index.php
Chinese translation: xuanxuanlu

Ohno Satoshi:
Honestly, men crying isn't something really embarrassing. But I would easily cry in a lot of situations, and I wouldn't want other people to know... There was once I was talking to Nino on the phone, and that kid suddenly said, "Riida, you've always been guiding us like this, truly, thank you... no matter what we say every day, in our hearts our riida's definitely the best! We won't switch you with anyone! Are you listening? You're not dozing off are you?" There was something that filled my heart when I heard this...
I can't even reply anything else but "I'm hanging up". In the end I got lectured by him because of this...
But I'm really bad at saying those things... Those kind children who can look at someone like me as a leader, I really truly love them. If I was in another group, I probably won't be given such attention, therefore I've always been thankful... I'm not goodlooking, neither am I special, but because Arashi is very handsome and very special, therefore even I have become someone amazing...
Maa...I feel very apologetic for someone like me to be leader, but I truly love them, very very much
These idiots, even if they made a mistake where no one can forgive them, I will never be able to leave them be. Only I must protect them... no matter when, even if Arashi doesn't exist anymore... No! If we're all together then Arashi doesn't have an end...
We've walked together to the present, it won't change in the future...
When I think about this, tears will fall...

Sakurai Sho:
When you've grown to a certain age, you will cry less and less...
Maybe you've been numbed by this world. From another perspective it seems like you are losing your innocence, but really it is because you want to become stronger. Therefore I thought even if you feel sad you must endure, to be a man. But a while ago during the tour, all five of us were together talking about the past and suddenly this kid started crying, and I'm not going to mention that the kid is M-kun...
Then Aiba suddenly wrapped his arm around Matsujun's shoulder and started crying as well.
What is this, these idiots....
As I thought of that, I suddenly realized the one hugging them and crying together is myself.
That room became a sea of tears...
If someone saw it they must think 'what is this, these people are gross.' But really, this is how we always are... therefore we feel really happy. It is rare for a group to be able to share each member's tears, therefore I love Arashi. I'm certainly a supporter of Arashi myself.
We are fated to be together.

Aiba Masaki:
Because of a cold, I was late. The staff members got really angry, just when I don't know what to do, Nino suddenly knelt down in front of the staffs. He really didn't have to go so far, but I was really touched at the time! I have a friend who picks me over their own pride...
He values me this way... I thought a lot about this. Maa... although the few months after I had spent a lot of money on this kid. But if it's for the members, I wouldn't feel distressed no matter what I spend. It doesn't matter if it's money or time, or even myself. People who can sacrifice themselves like this actually exist...
All I have to do is think of Arashi, and tears will fall. It was the same when I was sick. I didn't want to be sick, but I've caused a lot of trouble for many people...
The work that was meant for me, the other four took my place, and even took care of me. Therefore I couldn't lie down, I forcefully went on shows. At the time, the Jimusho didn't say anything, but riida and Sho-kun got really angry, they said 'You think you're supposed to be here right now? You can go on shows anytime, take care of yourself first!'
That time I strongly felt the difference between members and the people who I work with. There exist people who unconditionally cared about me, I was so touched that my body starts to tremble... Absolutely unforgettable, no, I certainly mustn't forget. And that weren't tears of grief, but overflowing happiness... it's that...
Because of that, I'm here now.

Ninomiya Kazunari:
I generally don't like the crying atmosphere, but if those tears are honestly from the heart, I will not think it is embarrassing, and it wouldn't be blind sadness, I should say it makes your chest feel warm. Aiba-chan said because I was moved, but actually I was moved by Aiba. I was truly shocked, the idiot who laughs every day suddenly collapsed one day. But that idiot still wants to stay with Arashi even when he was suffering.
In front of the camera he's smiling, off camera he's lying down, can't even utter a word, he really didn't want to leave Arashi's side. A responsible professional, really he's an idiot...
When he smiles while enduring the pain, actually he's crying inside. I think I'm blessed, being able to meet these people. Even though I generally like people, but the affection for Arashi I have confidence that mine won't lose to anyone else. It's the lover in my heart... if I say I can see other people shed tears, it could only be Arashi.
Tears and smiles were shared along our path, I believe it will be the same in the future.
I have become more kind, because Arashi is very kind.

Matsumoto Jun:
I'm someone who cries when seeing a movie, therefore I think crying will make you feel better... Maybe I'll be called a crybaby, but I don't want to lose my tears, my life would become too bare without tears. During my birthday, in the concert where not just the members, but the fans are singing the birthday song as well...
Times when unknown foreigners sent gifts saying they've been supporting me...
When I read about a beautiful love story...
When I see people who give their best through their hardest times, because I can feel the wonderful things in this world, I don't even know why I would start crying hard, the tears at those times would be very warm...
When Arashi is together chatting and laughing, when I see those smiles, my eyes will start to blur.
Because I have this thankful feeling, I always think 'if I'm not together with these people, maybe I would lose myself'... Times when I'm feeling tired, strength was given to me, walking together on the path to the future, pointer to the right direction, from many aspects, it's given by Arashi.  Last time when the members secretly planned my birthday party,  from the morning they've been keeping silent, I was actually quite angry inside, but they prepared it for embarrassing me. When I see the smiling faces of the members, I turned around and started crying.
The members also knew I would cry... Sho-kun even hugged me. I don't feel embarrassed at all, because we are a family already...
That's why I like to cry... when I cry it feels good....
