Celebration of CD debut 1st anniversary! So this time, we prepared some questions associated with “1”. Out of those questions they chose 5 questions freely and commented on them. We were impressed on the many answers full of member love and group love!


Nakajima Yuto

HSJ’s biggest thing to be proud of is?
That we have many people! It is Johnnys history most, after all. Thanks to that, we are always spending time lively. Also, our youth can be another pride! It’s a first group to all be a Heisei born. But, next year, Yama chan, Chinen and I will be an in high school so Ryutaro will be the only middle schooler. Excuse us while we join in the adults~ sorry ♥ sort of like that (laughs).

If you could bring one thing to a deserted island, what would it be?
Maybe a lighter. It’s useful when you want to make fire and if some real “pinch!” happens, I can make fire and use the smoke as signal (laughs). If I have fire I can cook the fish I’d catch in the sea and eat them as well. (Chinen “why don’t you just eat them raw”) No way~ you might get a stomach ache! (laughs)

If you had 100 million yen, what would you use it on?
I hear 100 million yen is hard to use up, I think I’d give half to my parents. Because they’re always taking care of me so let’s say it’s my way of showing gratitude. With the money left, I’ll build a music studio. If I have a place like that, I can practice my drums as much as I want. I’ll call Yabu kun or Keito kun and make them play guitar and have a session sounds fun too!

If you were to give us one weakness, it’d be?
That I get carried away when people compliment me (laughs). For example, when someone compliments me during drama rehearsal, I’d try to add an unneeded plan and fail (laughs). Also, I get oddly embarrassed when people give me compliments. In recent, I was told “you’re cute~” by the co-stars from the drama ‘Scrap Teacher’ (Nihon TV Every Saturday 21:00~)I was happy but on the other hand I was blushing from the compliment … (laughs).

What would you do if you had a month off?
I want to go on an overseas travel. I want Hawaii for the place! Not Waikiki where it’s like crowd-of-people hell, more where I can relax with lots of nature. A month is pretty long but I bet I’ll be absorbed by everything ever day that I’d keep explore this and that. I don’t think I won’t get bored half way (laughs).



Yamada Ryosuke

HSJ’s biggest thing to be proud of is?
I think everyone else has said this but the number of people is one of pride. There’s no other group with 10 people so it’s really easy to remember. Also, the fact that we get along. Since working for a year, we’re starting to have less boss-subordinate relationship in a good way and I think we can talk to each other about anything now. Kind of like age doesn’t matter and just contact each other because we’re the same group members. Surely, there are still places where BEST team has to pull the 7 team.

If you had 100 million yen, what would you use it on?
Go overseas. By going around the world, I want to see various things and get thrills. But, that’s not going to use up 100 million yen… My talks are so small (laughs). Then, I’ll build a gymnasium in my house! Then, I can play sports whenever and as much as I want to. People who can use the gym? Any friend of my is OK! Of course the members can come in any time.

If you had an hour at belt-conveyor sushi place, how many plate [of sushi] can you eat?
As much as I can, unless my stomach doesn’t become full. My favorites are fatty tuna, horse mackerel, sea eel, and sweet shrimp. But all without wasabi (laughs). That reminds me, I went to a sushi place recently and I think I ate 20 plates. There are 2 per one plate so that minds I ate 40 sushi pieces…. That’s a pretty big amount (laughs).

If you could bring one thing to a deserted island, what would it be?
A knife, maybe. I think I can survive as long as I have this somehow. Men do have decent survival skills! Because we have to protect girls in case of emergencies ♥

If you were to give us one weakness, it’d be?
That my personality has intense ups and downs. The difference between when my mood is high and I’m playing around and when I’m depressed is really intense. I want to control my feelings more but it’s pretty hard….. By the way, my way of coping with depression is eat for the being! (laughs) Just having a full stomach makes me pretty happy. That’s such a overeater way of thinking… (laughs).



Chinen Yuri

HSJ’s biggest thing to be proud of is?
I guess it’s that we have many people after all. Now, you know we are only filming the drama with only four people? When it’s like that I feel sense of oddness like “Wait a minute, there’s less people~” (laughs). Maybe I feel like that because I usually enjoy the time having fun with the 10. But I do think “how loud~” sometimes (laughs). I want to keep spending time with the 10 without any change.

What do you think is your “I’m the number one!” thing out of the members?
Acrobats, of course! This is my special ability. But, I want everyone to master it since we’d look cool if we did acrobat with all the members. I’ll do the hard technique, so it’d great if everyone could just master back flip first… (laughs). I remember Yama chan could do the back flip not very long time ago but it seems to be he can’t do it anymore for some reason… what a pity!

Who is the most hardworking out of the members?
I think that would be Keito. He debuted not long after joining the jrs and I think it was hard for him to keep up with the dance at first but after working hard, I think he’s starting to remember faster. When everyone else is having a break, he’s always practicing by himself and I think he’s a hard worker.

If you could bring one thing to a deserted island, what would it be?
Cell phone, maybe. Because I want it to be in a condition I can contact anyone immediately. Actually, I’m a type of person who wants to be talking with someone at all the time instead of spending time alone. Therefore, I think the situation itself where I’d go to a deserted island alone would be impossible (laughs). (Nakajima “can you even reach anyone with a cell phone on the deserted island?” eh~, if I can’t reach anyone that’s going to be a problem (laughs).

If you had 100 million yen, what would you use it on?
That’d be surprisingly hard but… I’d like to build a big house in a suburb with lots of nature surroundings. There’d be many high tech useful functions in the house, a courtyard …. I just want to make it very gorgeous! It’d be great if I could invite the members and spend time having fun.



Yaotome Hikaru

HSJ’s biggest thing to be proud of is?
When we all meet up early in the morning for work, everyone has sleepy face on at first but once we get hyped up of some reason, that’s when everyone starts being loud (laughs). With that energy, I can spend the whole day with them cheerfully. I think that powerfulness is a big thing to be proud of for JUMP. We make use of the 10, the number of people in a good way.

Please tell us a joke or a pun using “1”!
“Hey!Say!JUMP who greeted 1st anniversary since debut are 1-derful!” how’s that? (P as expected, you’re have a fast reaction) well, I have always been saying stupid stuff, so I’m good at saying jokes in an instant like this one (laughs). Don’t you think this one is pretty good since the word wonderful suits JUMP?

What’s your favorite event out of the year?
I have many favorite events but if were to pick one, I’d choose Christmas. It’s not that I have a particular memory but doesn’t the whole town feel like it’s rapped with warm and fuzzy atmosphere? I think that atmosphere is great.

What would you do if you had a month off?
I want to travel somewhere with a camera and a sketchbook. I think it’d be fun if I could spend my days freely taking pictures or drawing painting of scenery where I feel like. (P Traveling alone?) I guess. Going alone and talking to people I meet at some place sounds great. There’d be many amazing encounters! I bet a month will pass by in no time.

What was your happiest memory so far?
Actually, it was my school’s school festival yesterday. We sold daigaku-imo [candied fried sweet potato] and sold out all 1200 that were prepared. Thanks to that we had a tremendous surplus (laughs). Also, I made a song after I was asked by a team to make a song for the dance contest, and the team won the title! As a memento we celebrated by throwing pie at each others faces. Then, at the end we took a souvenir picture with the entire student covered in cream! (laughs) Isn’t it great how it feels like youth? I’m happy that I made such an awesome memory! But as good memories keep increasing and the more it increases it’s going to get me during the graduation ceremony…



Takaki Yuya

HSJ’s biggest thing to be proud of is?
It’s that there’s many ways of showing how we are, since we have many people. It’s our strong point to be able to show many colors of us because we have many people in our group. By believing various possibilities, I want to keep challenging on new things.

What’s your favorite time of the day?
First is when I’m relaxing on the sofa at home and when I’m taking a bath. Also, spending time with my family, friends, or people I trust. It’s really important to have a time which you can truly feel relief from your heart. For recent times, I’ve been meeting with the co-stars from the drama “Gokusen” a lot and I feel really at ease. I guess friends are treasures after all!

What do you eat in a day?
For me, even if I ate a meal I get hungry in 2 hours (laughs). That’s why, instead of eating how many times a day, I feel like I’m eating all the time. Also, the amount I eat per meal is quite a lot. The menu? I love Yakiniku lately. I have times where I go eat them 4 times in a week. The reason why I don’t gain weight might be because I digest them right away. I hear digesting noise like “guu~” immediately after eating (laughs). Sometimes I wouldn’t be able to sleep because I’d get hungry at night and I’d search for something to eat in the fridge or call delivery. I can never wait until next morning.

What is your saddest incident today?
I arrived at the studio an hour before the shoot today but there weren’t any staffs anywhere. After killing time playing with my cell phone for 20 minutes thinking “that’s weird” I found out that I was in the wrong studio… (laughs). Since I was able to unite with them safely, there’s no problem as a result but personally it was a sad incident for me (laughs).

If you were to give us one weakness, it’d be?
Fact that when I think “I don’t want to” that attitude shows on my face. Seems like everyone around me notice that too. Of course, I think it’s important to show your true feelings but I want to be a little more mature about it. Also, I sometimes take what others said seriously and get mad when they said as a joke. I want to fix that in the future.




Yabu Kota

HSJ’s biggest thing to be proud of is?
Since our age group is wide I find it everyone easy to talk to from any generation. For example, Ryutaro is in 1st year of middle school but I generally understand what popular things are among those aged kids. Also, the fact that our hairstyle never gets dubbed even though we have 10 members is one of the pride (laughs). It’s not like we are conscious about that but it’s naturally all different. I guess that means we are full of personalities. Then, the fact that everyone can take on the work recklessly is another one of our big pride!

What do you eat in a day?
Basically, amount or times I eat aren’t very often. Sometimes I have days when I realize “wait, I only ate once today”. (P Don’t you get hungry?) Yeah, I’d go out to eat with my friends and everyone would eat normal meal but I’d be the only one eating annindofu [sweet tofu desert] happens a lot (laughs). I never eat anything especially when I didn’t move around my body that day. But I’m really really healthy!

If you were to give us one weakness, it’d be?
I break things easily (laughs). Especially cell phones, I always break them. Why does it keep happening when I’m using it normally!? I bought the one I’m using right now 2 month ago but I already broke 3 places. Maybe I’m playing around with it too much unconsciously. When I think it about it more, since I was little I was a kid who used to break toys that got on the same day… (laughs). But I won’t break the bond between people ♥ (laughs) it’s fine because I’ll treat them very carefully!

What was your happiest moment so far?
The other day, my friend who I’ve known for 10 years asked me an advice for the first time. I was happy that my friend trusts me and I thought I wanted to be help from bottom of my heart. I guess it’s a good feeling to have people rely on you after all.

What would you do if you had a month off?
Maybe I’ll go to overseas alone after studying some languages. Just the other day, my acquaintance went to America and I heard this person bought tickets and arranged every by themselves then went around over 10 places around the town. Such travels sounds like fun. We have to all deal with whatever happens to the places we live all by ourselves so I bet this experience will make anyone stronger as a human being!



Inoo Kei

HSJ’s biggest thing to be proud of is?
Being active for a year, I thought of this again but these 10 get along quite well (laughs). You’d think by being with them this much it’d be understandable if we fight but we never have that. Sure we sometimes throw opinions at each other but we all know that, that’s important to improve as a group so the atmosphere never becomes tense. This good relationship is truly something to be proud about!

If you had an hour at belt-conveyor sushi place, how many plate [of sushi] can you eat?
I just went to eat sushi yesterday and I think I ate about 15 plates within an hour. I especially liked mackerel and salmon. By the way, I hate the egg from the sushi place. I don’t like how sweet it is or it’s more of “this does not go along with rice” kind of feeling… Also, I don’t think I like quid or shellfish. Maybe my dislikes and likes in food is very severe.

What would you do if you had a month off?
I want to go around Europe. That’s because I saw they were introducing houses along the city street in Europe a little while ago and I was moved how beautiful they were. If I ever have any time, I want to see them with my own eyes. It’s not anything I usually experience so this might excite me even more!

What’s your favorite time of the day?
When I’m cooking. Actually, I’ve been interested in cooking lately and I search for cooking videos on a internet site and do my best cooking by watching that (laughs). Just yesterday, I even made boiled egg to put in my ramen. I’d stop the heat after 6 and half minutes, the whites are hardened but the yolk is still half-boiled. It’s was a rather strange finish but I was feel. Of course the taste was awesome! I want to try other menus in the future.

If you had 100 million yen, what would you use it on?
I want to use it on things I want but I don’t think I’d able to spend it all so I think building a house would be the best? Pool or karaoke, I want to make a mansion with all equipment I want. Then, I think it’d be fun to invite my friends or members and go nuts with everyone!




Morimoto Ryutaro

HSJ’s biggest thing to be proud of is?
That all 10 of us are full of energy! We are always really lively and hyped up. We are just people who don’t keep quiet when we are tired or busy (laughs). I want to keep spending time with full of energy. I think how good our teamwork is one of our prides, too. Regardless of age, we are always supporting each other.

What do you think is your “I’m the number one!” thing out of the members?
I have the most talent to write lyrics! ... is what I believe (laughs). I just love writing lyrics that I have written many lyrics so far. I mostly make the images from my dream into words. I have hard time when I can’t put it together sometimes but I can finish it up perfectly if I have 3 month. I want to present it during concerts someday so please look forward to them!

Where do you wash first when you get in the bath?
I wash my hair first. Then I go in the bath tub while I have treatment in my hair. I’d wash it out after 10 minutes and wash my body is how it goes. This hasn’t changed since I was little.

Tell us your memory of when you received the first place.
The first I got first place was for a relay on field day when I was in 1st grade. The other team’s players fell, dropped the baton or type of accident and that resulted into my team winning the first place safely at the end (laughs). I remember I was so happy.

What was your happiest moment so far?
This was recently but during the recording of the show “Showa Hey!Say!” that I get to co-star in, the MC, Kosakai Kazuki san complimented me saying “Your boke got better”! I was really happy! To me, the talk is a part which I want do my best at and at the same time it’s also a part I find difficult. Of course it’s because Kosakai san and other made us the atmosphere that makes it easy for us to talk and I’m helped out by that big time but since he complimented me, I thought I should keep doing my best and keep boke-ing once again.

※boke = act goofy




Okamoto Keito

HSJ’s biggest thing to be proud of is?
We can talk to each other about anything regardless of our age. When I look back at it now, I think there was some part us of hesitating right after debuting but after spending time together at work, we became closer and now I think we talk to each other by consciously thinking “the member in the same group”. I think we have a rather good communication between us.

What would you do if you had a month off?
I want to go on an oversea vacation… or more of go back to England and see my friends. Or I think going to the southern island with Yuto. Guam or Okinawa sounds good. (P and your reason to pick Yuto is?) I think he’d go nuts without a care (laughs). Yuto has usually has great reactions so I always feel happy when I’m with him.

If you could bring one thing to a deserted island, what would it be?
I want to bring someone I get along with. Because I hate to spend time alone. You might be stuck on that island for several months because the help might not come that quickly, right? I don’t think I can stand the loneliness of not having someone to talk to. Who do I specifically want? …. Yuto (laughs). I think he unexpectedly might have some survival skills so I think he’d help me in case of an emergency.

Your friend is an hour late to a meet up! Would you wait until they come?
I can wait with no problem. As long as I could kill time playing with my phone or go into a store for a minute, an hour can be spent in no time. I can’t believe of getting mad for making me wait. Or actually, I’m sometimes late to meet ups so I can’t get mad at anyone (laughs).

How many cm did you grow in this year?
Right now, I’m 173 cm and if I compare that to year before, I grew about 7cm. But everyone around me is growing as well so I don’t feel like my height has grown. As an ideal height, I want to grow about 5 cm more. To do that, I drink milk every day. By the way, my grandpa has about 190cm. Since I have that heredity I think I’m going to keep growing for sure!



Arioka Daiki

HSJ’s biggest thing to be proud of is?
To be honest, I joined this entertainment world because I admired Katori Shingo kun and that Shingo kun and everyone from SMAP came us to see SUMMARY 2008 this summer! This is something to be proud of. Also, after it ended they even told us “it was great”…. I was so happy that I couldn’t sleep well that day. I was moved that many other of our senpai came to see the performance.

Tell us your memory of when you received the first place.
I received a first place for a marathon contest when I was in 1st grade. I remember easing my leg in the bathroom while saying “do your best, my legs!” many times, the day before (laughs). Furthermore, I wrote “1” on my palm on the day before the race. Then, I won the first place and I was really happy!

Where do you wash first when you get in the bath?
First, I was my hair and wash my face with shampoo still on then, I wash it all off. Then I put on treatments, wash my body, and wash everything off. At the end I brush my teeth and get in the bathtub. … That’s the best washing way since I’ve living for these 17 years (laughs). I heard it’s good to leave shampoo or treatment I your hair for few minutes and since then, I have been keeping that style. Don’t you think this is efficiency good? (laughs)

How many cm did you grow in this year?
People around me have said “you grew” a lot. Of course you’d think I’m taller if I stood next to a person I was the same height as before but I’m too scared to know how much I actually grew, I haven’t measured myself yet… (laughs). Even though I’m starting to think “I guess I don’t have to be growing” lately. There are things I can do because I’m small and I just have to think this is one of my personalities.

Your friend is an hour late to a meet up! Would you wait until they come?
I can wait no problem for an hour. Besides, I’m good at killing time. But I want that person to call ahead of time if there are going to be late. Then, I can take the long way or thinking of some type of a plan.
