Today we just had our Christmas party. It wasn’t good or memorable. Maybe because of the lack of preparation for the food and games and the unorganized flow of the party. But there were many fun and happy parts!

Now, let me give a report about the current things about Arashi today. MY POST WILL BE VERY LONG considering the many things I must and may say. SORRY FOR THE LARGE PICS. They’re there for you to read.

This was amazing! They’re actually monopolizing the Oricon charts! And in different categories? Arashi, omedetou. I hope that you’ll continue giving your best and singing for us like we’re your family members, too.

Speaking of that, here is the Tokyo Big Sight event that recognized Arashi as the:

BEST ARTIST OF THE YEAR.

Here are snapshots! The Best Artist of the Year is…

From me: Congratulations, Arashi! You deserve the award because you worked hard and have shown all of us unity, friendship, and brotherhood. Please continue singing for us not just for the award but for the art of singing and inspiring people. I hope that you will continue to sing songs that encourage and inspire because this is your trademark. Keep your humility because this is one of the good things about Arashi. Keep the good work!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, everybody!

Enjoy your Christmas holiday with peace and joy with your families! Happy Birthday, Jesus! My Christmas wish is internal peace and good relationship with my friends and family, filled with goodness and kindness. Another is that I may find the right university for me where I will give it my best and offer you the fruits of hard work.
