Arashi's leader, Ohno Satoshi, will be hosting a four episode mini-series on the upcoming NHK satellite channel, BS Premium.

The mini-series, called "Jakuchu Miracle World", is a documentary focusing on analyzing artwork by famous Edo era artist Ito Jakuchu.

Ohno is an artist himself, dabbling in paintings and sculptures. In 2008, he held an art exhibition entitled "FREE STYLE", showcasing his work to around 100,000 fans. Ohno became a fan of Jukuchu's work 5 years ago, and remarked, "Jukuchu's paintings are perfectly drawn from corner to corner. It's amazing that he puts his soul in all his work."

This will be the first time Ohno hosts a show by himself. He commented, "I usually shine on shows hen teased by people around me, so I'm looking forward to discovering a new side of myself."

The show will air for four consecutive nights starting April 25th.
