Aiba: I usually have things like nattou [fermented soy beans] and frozen edamame [green soybeans] (in my bentou).
TV Life: So in today’s interview, we had you two try and pack the side dishes in a bentou.
Aiba: I tried putting in chicken and umeboshi [pickled plums]. But I only eat the umeboshi that Nino’s mum brings along.
Nino: Surely, you eat umeboshi made by other people?
Aiba: Nah, I generally don’t like it.. Since I’m working with Nino today, Nino’s mum might see this so I thought I’d just appeal, saying “I’m waiting for your umeboshi!”
Nino: So this is an appeal… (laughs)
Aiba: It’s because her umeboshi is really delicious!
Nihon no sugoi toko (Aiba Manabu 14/08/31)
- Japanese invented the nosepads for glasses because asians have lower nose bridges and the original design was inconvenient for us asians
- Kendama, a traditional japanese toy is now popular worldwide (or so they claim) after extreme tricks using Kendama was uploaded onto video sites, and there was a world cup for Kendama in Hiroshima this July (wtf)
- Uchimizu, the sprinkling of water on streets and gardens, serves to not only keep dust down for others but also help cool the place.
- There’s a type of resin that if painted onto asphalt roads, reflects infrared rays and makes the heating up of the roads difficult.
- The origin of Hawaiian shirts came from Japanese who lived in Hawaii and would then recycle their yukata into button shirts that contributed to the trend of these patterned shirts.
- In Japan, there are 3,840,000 vending machines (2013 stats) and all of them have addresses written onto it so that people would know where they are in case of emergencies.
- The toilet symbols that represent the two genders originated from Japan.

AIBA MASAKI - AIBA MANABU 2014.09.21
Sho-kun is Arashi’s pioneer. Without him, there wouldn’t be anyone to try on other careers like newscasting, rapping, etc. Matsujun is Arashi’s idea man. Without him, there wouldn’t be anyone to create the Johnny’s Moving Stage and to come up with all those amazing ideas for our concerts. Aiba-chan is Arashi’s sun, for without him, there wouldn’t be anyone to create miracles for our group. Nino is Arashi’s melody-maker. Without him, there wouldn’t be anyone to create those songs that our fans love.
(…and what about you?)
