Aiba Masaki visits Taiwan


Arashi's Aiba Masaki recently attended the world premiere for the documentary, "Nihon Retto Ikimono Tachi no Monogatari", in Taiwan.

This film was presented in Taiwan to thank the students of Affiliated Experimental�Elementary School�at Taipei Municipal University of Education, who gathered donations for the victims of the Tohoku Earthquake back in March.�A total of 250 people, mainly consisting of students, were invited to attend the screening party.

The students of the school shared a part of their allowance, and donated a total of 300,000 yen (around $4000 usd). Aiba expressed, "I was deeply moved by the support of the children. I am honored to first screen this film in Taiwan, who gave us their warm support." He then promoted the documentary saying, "I want children all over the world to see the family love and bond of animals that is portrayed in the film."

A press conference was held before the screening party, where Aiba was asked to compare the members of Arashi to an animal. "Ohno-kun likes to fish, so maguro (tuna)!", �he responded, causing the crowd to burst into laughter.

Since Arashi has held a concert in Taiwan previously back in 2006 and 2008, the fans enthusiastically welcomed Aiba when he arrived at the airport and while sight-seeing with the students. He promised, "Out of gratitude,�I want to hold a live again in Taiwan."
