When Akanishi was in school, his teacher often read his kanji (仁) wrong and called him Hitoshi. Because of this many fans seem to believe that his name is in fact Akanishi Hitoshi - which is incorrect. The name Jin comes from 仁義礼智信 (jingireichishin) which means "the 5 Confucian virtues" and stands for benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom, and sincerity. Akanishi's name means "benevolence".
He is best friends with Yamashita Tomohisa of NEWS and Shirota Yuu from D-BOYS, as well as NEWS and Kanjani8 member Nishikido Ryo.
Akanishi's wide vocal range used to be often showcased in KAT-TUN songs.
Akanishi is often given female roles when performing skits with his former band members because he "looks good as a girl"; Tanaka Koki once stated that he felt "excited" seeing Akanishi in a nurse uniform.
Nakamaru Yuichi has said that if Akanishi wants to he could easily be #1, but Akanishi himself admited that being an idol isn't his ideal job. even in one magazine interview Akanishi also said he hates to suck up to people.
