Here's the English article (source: tokyohive) I'm happy to know. Taichi really loves her. 



On February 5th, stage actor Saotome Taichi (20) and model Nishiyama Maki (26) returned to Japan together from their trip to Hawaii. The couple was very open about their relationship, holding hands until they left the airport.

Saotome wore a hood over his head to hide himself from reporters, while Nishiyama covered her face with a mask. Nishiyama was also seen wearing a ring on her left ring finger.

As reporters approached the couple, they asked, “Is it true you two are dating?“. Saotome admitted to their relationship saying, “Yes.” However, when asked about marriage, he quickly answered, “No.”

Reporters also asked the couple if they enjoyed the shopping and the beaches in Hawaii. To this, Saotome replied, “Yes.”

After going through the arrival gate, the couple was welcomed by 2 men from their agencies and immediately left the airport.

According to sources, Saotome and Nishiyama met through a mutual friend, and started dating sometime last year. Recently, Nishiyama has been seen attending Saotome’s stage performances, and on their days off, the two spend time together going on dates.

Since the couple was spotted returning from a trip, sources say that they have a fairly close relationship. Saotome’s agency also acknowledged the relationship saying, “They’re not going to get married yet, but they have a good relationship.”


 


P.S. I have a guess on who the mutual friend is. Well, the mutual friend is the only link between the two...since he and Maki are on the same agency. lol Maybe I'm wrong. I'm talking about Taichi's best friend, Daigoro Tachibana who Taichi usually sends ticket to his shows. You can find Maki's photo in her agency's site (also Daigoro's photo lol).

Title: To those who I've worried

I am sorry to have worried you.

And thank you for being worried about me.





Truth. Lies. Misunderstanding. Blank space. Image.

It's all mixed together like fallen pieces of a puzzle.

So is understanding.
I know that you probably didn't believe me.

At least
Believe in the words I'm saying now.

Like, hate, the present, the past, in my heart, in my words, in my head,
People, even myself, don't want know things they hate.
Things that they don't know, they also hate.

Strangers.
Myself.
All humans knows about the beauty of the truth.
But there is also suffering in the truth.

We all confess
When facing the truth.

The love we have is so deep it hurts.
I deeply love her.



She loves the me that knows nothing except for her, and I love the her that knows nothing except for me.
So it can't be helped that some say it's for our image.
But I hate that.

Speaking for myself,
It's not like I don't know what I'm doing,
And I'm just dreaming.

I am looking at my real self now.
And I am still living as myself.


After all,
The confidence I have in myself has not changed in any way.

Because of this, I may be hated.

But I still want people to come see my show without hating it.
Because I stand on the stage as the same person I was.

I am sorry for being so selfish.

Thank you for being worried about me.

Notes: If you are confused about this... I'm sorry to be breaking this to you. The news is that Taichi is in a pretty serious relationship with the model/actress Maki Nishiyama (26). They were spotted coming back to Japan from Hawaii by reporters and they weren't hiding how in love they are. Taichi's agency has confirm that their relationship has been going well but they are not getting married... yet.

I hope that everyone can support him and wish him happiness because everyone deserves to be loved, right? And you can't tell from the translation but he uses "aishiteru"/love instead of "suki"/like when talking about her.

In other news, I no longer feel bad about finding him attractive because Maki is the same age as me!

Notes: You can look at the bracelets here: http://zozo.jp/news/20120123_5522374.html

They are not cheap: 26,250 yen each... The black one is made of lava beads and there is a black cubic zirconia in the silver color bead. While the white one is river stone with cubic zirconia.

Title: Get together

I decided to download the two insert songs from the highly reviewed NTV late night drama on air now, "QP", on Recochoku* and iTunes!!

Song Riders' "I Don't Back" and "Rabbit Foot".

Song Riders' album also came out.

I really like one of the songs from the album.
The one called LOVE something or another**

Anyway
Give them a listen
And give them a try!

I feel like the more I know,
The more I want to recommend
Their sound and
The band.

Thank you!

Notes:
*Recochoku is a website that allows you to download music and ringtones to your cell phone.
** Taichi-kun forgot the title of the song, which is LOVE XL.

Song Riders can only be downloaded from iTunes Japan. But you can still check them out on YouTube!

Midday meal

So that means...

[pictures of Yuya and Koga with mustard dabbed under their eyes]

These pictures were taken with their cooperation.

Thank you~

Notes:
* Chicken with eggs cooked in mirin and soy sauce over rice.
** Oden is various ingredients stewed in a type of broth. Popular oden include tofu, egg and daikon. A spicy mustard is usually eaten with this.

Taichi-kun doesn't appear to be updating much. Most likely because he is in the middle of a set of shows until the 11th. Please go to the source for the pictures because I'm too lazy to upload them myself...

I also might be posting some fan reports if anyone is interested. I've been a bit busy with work.

Have a great day!

Hi!

I've decided that I'm going to translate Taichi-kun's blog from this year on.
I know there are a lot of fans out there who don't understand Japanese. And I want to introduce him to new fans. (I also have a secret agenda to have him perform in America again...)

So, if you have any requests for translations just let me know in the comments ^_^v
