Late February, around 8:00 p.m. Two people with large luggage, perhaps returning from a trip. Walking at a distance of about 2 meters even in a quiet residential area.

I long so much to live with my lover. I don’t mind at all if I can see their sloppy parts. I’ll love them until I die, even if they fart.”

When asked about his views on love in an idol magazine, Shizuya Yoshizawa, 26, of the young idol group Travis Japan (a.k.a. “Toraja”) from the Johnny’s Office, smiles for the camera and says, “I’ve been in love with a lot of people.

Travis Japan” has seven members, with an average age of 25, and is the most popular group at the office, with rumors in the industry that their debut will be announced soon. A source at a record company tells us, “The group is a group of seven members with an average age of 25 years old.

The group was formed in ’12 with five members, including Yoshizawa, and after a change of members, the current seven-member group started their activities in ’17. With a reputation for dance, the group was chosen by Matsumoto Jun (38) and Takizawa Hideaki (39) after Kondo Masahiko (57) used them as back-up dancers, and they were also selected to perform on stage with ‘Arashi’ and ‘Tackey & Tsubasa.’ In 2008, for the first time in Johnny’s Jr. each member held a solo concert. Whenever they post a photo on Instagram, they instantly receive nearly 100,000 likes.

In November 2009, at a pre-performance press conference for a play in which he was starring, he made a passionate appeal for all the members to make their debut together. Takizawa, the vice president of Johnny’s Office who composed and directed the play, responded to this appeal with the affirmative comment, “I think the time will come when they can all confidently say ‘I’m ready’ at the right moment, when they can spread their wings. It has been two years since the debut of “SnowMan” and “SixTONES,” their senior group. Fans are hoping that this year, the year of the tiger, will be the “right time” for them to make their debut.

In mid-February, Yoshizawa, who introduced her views on love at the beginning of this article, was seen on a certain main street in Tokyo. He was wearing a black bucket hat and round glasses. Holding several brand-name paper bags in his hands, he was walking at a brisk pace. Ahead of him was a petite, fair-skinned woman who kept a certain distance from him as she proceeded. She may have been on a trip somewhere, carrying a large baggage and occasionally looking back at Yoshizawa walking behind her. After walking for a while and entering a path, Yoshizawa, who was walking behind her, runs up to her and they join forces. They entered the same apartment building, being wary of their surroundings.

Mr. Yoshizawa has a woman he has been dating for about four years now. She is A, an older hairdresser, and they met at a blind date through a mutual acquaintance. Mr. Yoshizawa fell in love with A at first sight. He went to the beauty salon where she worked as a customer and made a fierce attack on her, and they eventually developed a relationship. They then dated for three and a half years before splitting up, but they got back together last summer. Even now, Mr. Yoshizawa goes to the hair salon where she works and has A cut and color his hair.

Just recently, when Mr. Yoshizawa’s work settled down and he had some time off, they went on a trip to a hot spring in Izu. A says they enjoyed eating seafood on rice in a bowl, which is very Instagram-worthy,” says an acquaintance of Ms. A.

Another day, Yoshizawa and Mr. A were at a nearby convenience store. On this day, too, the two walked a short distance into the store. After about five minutes, when Yoshizawa was still having trouble with the copier, she came up to him and looked into the copier and said, “This is how you do it,” as if to say, “This is how you do it.

A is one year older than Yoshizawa and has a sassier personality. She is not a very good cook. At home, she does the housework quickly and efficiently, and we hear that Mr. Yoshizawa takes advantage of that. Originally, Mr. Yoshizawa’s parents had a large family, and he is the youngest child who grew up surrounded by his older brothers and sisters. I think that spending time with A is a healing experience for Yoshizawa, who has left his parents’ home to lead a life as an entertainer in Tokyo.

Later, after leaving the convenience store, they walked away from each other again and disappeared together to their apartment.

Stars of the past such as “SMAP” and “Arashi” usually debuted in their teens. In recent years, however, it has become the norm for Japanese groups to debut after the age of 20. Today’s juniors may need someone who understands and supports them even after they debut after overcoming a long period of underdevelopment.

Around 5:30 in the evening in mid-February, I took a cab home. The hooded sweater he wears in the official video is a brand-name item priced at about 120,000 yen
Around 7 p.m. in mid-February. I came out of a neighborhood convenience store. Wearing a disguise with a hat on his eyes and walking at a distance from her.
Yoshizawa answers a direct interview with this magazine.
