Tokyo Tower to be lit up in Arashi’s colors!

On March 13th, Arashi appeared at the press conference for Fuji TV’s “Hana Arashi” campaign.
This campaign is to promote Fuji TV’s spring programs, in which Arashi members appear during March 16th to April 16th. During the campaign, many CM spots starring Arashi will be aired intensively. They will also promote the programs through 5 minute late-night specials titled, “Haru Ichiban! Bokura ga Hana Arashi wo Makiokoshimasu!” (total 4 episodes, limitedly in Kanto region) on March 22nd, 23rd, 24th and 26th.
Moreover, it was announced that as a part of the “Haru Arashi” campaign, the Tokyo Tower will be illuminated in Arashi’s image colors (Blue, Red, Green, Yellow, and Purple) on March 16th (6:00 pm ~ 12:00 am).  It will be the first time for Tokyo Tower to be lit up in 5 colors.  MemberMatsumoto Jun revealed that the “Arashi” Tower will be shown during the final episode (to be aired on the 19th) of his ongoing drama “Lucky Seven“.
At the press conference, the members were asked which building they would like to light up next, and Ninomiya Kazunari jokingly said, “I’m aiming for Aiba-san’s parents’ house.”  Aiba Masaki responded, “My father and mother would be shocked, so please stop.”
During March 16th to April 16th, Arashi will be all over on Fuji TV!
