Hey! Say! JUMP member Yaotome Hikaru attended the "Marching J" charity event held by Johnny & Associates on April 1st. The fund raising event was very special to Hikaru since he's originally from the Miyagi prefecture.

Hikaru said that right now his family is living in the evacuation shelters, and also mentioned that his older brother is staying at the company workplace. He wants his brother to see how hard he's working. He also admitted that that his family actually lives in the mountain side of Miyagi-ken but communication is cut-off so he worries a lot.

The apartment, where his older brother and wife live, in Tagajo-shi was damaged by tsunami and earthquake. The first floor is flooded and they have no gas or water. His sister-in-law took refuge in his parents house along with her child, while the brother is residing in the company house. Though, Hikaru is particularly concerned for his 4-year old niece and 6-year old nephew.

Hikaru hasn't been able to reach any of his friends and wants to go back there as soon as possible. He really wants to do something for them all and is thankful for the "Marching J" project.
