Q & A Interview
>> Musical Genre?
Smells similar to a not very strong soap.
Shingo-kun, because he's entertaining to watch (laugh).
I really like dramas dealing with serious subjects (laugh).
Well, it's not really a fairy tale, but Disney's "Aladin". I like flying through the sky, and places that don't exist in the present.
My birthstone, turquoise.
Sokenbicha tea is my favorite.
It doesn't exist in Kansai, but chikuwabu. Why isn't it here, I wonder? It's so good (laugh).
>>If one day all the seats in the audience were filled with men?
Eh~!? I'd be spinning (laugh).
>>If you were a man?
I'd be a male model and I'd be leading fashion (laugh).
>>If you woke up one morning the size of a thumb?
I'd want to adventure around my own house. Trying to get into my furniture and the cracks around them (laugh).
>>If you could build a summer house wherever you liked?
A place where I could see the ocean.
>>If you could change the capital city?
Nara. I played Nakaooe no Ouji in Akanesasu Murasaki no Hana, and the memory of that land called Nara remains with me still. Now, returning to the rebuilt city of Nara I feel that it's not as interesting.
>>If you could gain any skill?
I'd like to pass the bar examination and have an opportunity to try the difficult experiences of a lawyer.
>>If you could speak in a language other than Japanese?

Swimming. For some reason I have this desire to submerge myself in water.
>>If you were invited onto Bistro SMAP, what would you order?
>>If you had your own TV show?
A travel show. I'd be the one traveling (laugh).
>>Tokyo or Osaka?
>>Summer or Winter?
>>A High Place or a Dark Place?
A high place.
>>Black Tailcoat or White Tailcoat?
>>An Anywhere Door or a Helicopter Hat?

>>When you're tired but can't allow yourself to sleep, what do you want to deal with it?
I pinch the skin under my eye.
>>What do you want the most right now?
>>The ability you want the most right now?

A machine that'll clean up my whole house with the push of a button, and even do the laundry (laugh).

I can fall asleep right away. Really, about 3 seconds.
>>When your alarm goes off, how long does it take you to get up?
I usually wake up right after the alarm sounds.
>>From the time you wake up, how long does it take before you leave?
On a practice day, an hour and a half. During a play run, I'll be in the dressing room in an hour.
>>What's your favorite time of the day?
I like the night, from the time I get into the bath until I go to sleep.
>>How long will you wait for someone?
>>Your favorite kind of watch?
I like large silver watches with a decent weight you can feel.
>>If there were 26 hours in a day, what would you do with the other 2 hours?
Increase the morning by two hours, and I'd want to take those two hours and spend them doing nothing.
