6x5: My five years with Arashi

Let me tell you a story.

It started five years ago, in 2009, on a day when I was feeling really sad. I was browsing Livejournal and I came across an entry from my friend where she posted a music video. I had no idea what kind of music it was, I just clicked play. And in a moment I was overwhelmed by the wave of happiness, with the song where I couldn’t understand a single word telling me that "it’s going to be all right".

It was One Love. That one song I’ll always hold dear to my heart.

I started looking for other Arashi songs. My friend shared some clips from their shows. And several months later I discovered Hana yori dango figuring out that “the boy from Arashi” is also an actor.

Hanadan swept me off my feet. I fell in love with the story and decided I want to study the language. And that’s exactly what I did.

One Love gave me my wings. It helped me come back to the thing I love, to my piano, and share all my feelings through music. It brought me to Japan last year for a two-week language course, and to Nagoya where I saw Arashi live. It started a long journey that I’m still continuing.

It’s been five years. Five amazing years filled with happiness, wonderful people, new challenges and dreams come true. Five years later I’m standing on the stage of the Japanese Speech Contest, and sharing my story. A story about a song that inspired me. A song that made me believe.

And believing, as we know, is everything.

PS The video is English subbed. You might need to turn the subtitles on.

It finally happened! Kiss and Cry from Shitsuren Chocolatier OST is the new viewcount leader at my channel, after Love Rain held the first place for about 2 years!

I’m happy to see this piece reach the top as I hold it very dear to my heart 

Some more BTS
I usually delete the takes I don’t need only leaving the material I’ll be uploading to my piano channel. But somehow this shot survived. Bittersweet was a challenging piece. And that’s me after I finally finished the filming.
