One morning in late August, when it had been raining since the day before and the temperature had dropped completely, a large man in a T-shirt and shorts appeared in a corner of an upscale residential area, defying the cold.

He showed off his dignified strolling style. On the way, some pedestrians noticed Kiyohara, but he didn’t seem to mind and continued walking in silence.

As Kiyohara walked along, a small border collie followed him in a reserved manner. The man with the full aura of a Border Collie is Kazuhiro Kiyohara, 54, and he is accompanied by his beloved dog, Tsuneyoshi, who has been featured many times on his YouTube videos.

After enjoying a 15-minute walk, Kiyohara and his dog returned home.

Speaking of Kiyohara, he returned as a commentator for the July 10 game between Hanshin and the Giants at Koshien. During the Tokyo Olympics, he was a commentator on “Gogosuma” (TBS), and has been remarkably active on TV. Moreover, it seems that it is not only her work that is doing well.

“She moved into a luxury apartment in May and started a new life with Tsuneyoshi in June. His life has become completely dog-centered, and he walks his dog every morning without fail and goes to bed early without staying up late. I try not to watch TV because it interferes with Jokichi’s sleep. Because I love my new family so much, I have become a healthy lifestyle.

He still goes to the hospital once every two weeks for treatment of depression and drug addiction, but his physical condition is probably the best it has been in recent years. He is also very motivated to work, and has received many requests for commentaries, especially since July. She has even made a special commentator’s notebook and is studying hard.

On another day, I witnessed a scene with his son. In the evening, I spotted my second son coming out of Kiyohara’s new house with Tsuneyoshi. It was the birthday of his first son, who plays on the baseball team at Keio University. The second son immediately turned back to the apartment, but perhaps the father and son had a birthday party together. In the June 26 issue of this magazine, I reported on a family dinner with his ex-wife Aki and their sons, and it seems that their relationship has been good ever since. I wonder if this move is a stepping stone to the four of them living together.

“I don’t think they’ll get back together. I don’t think they’ll get back together. Mr. Kiyohara’s top priority is the growth of his sons. Even though they live separately, he and Aki have been able to raise their children together. He feels that this level of distance is the best.

Since June last year, the four of us have gone out for dinner many times, and he has been able to communicate with Aki. I don’t think he’s in a hurry to change anything; he seems to be encouraged by the success of his sons, including his eldest son who made his debut at Keio University’s Jingu Shrine in June, and he tells people around him, ‘I have to work hard too.

Kiyohara is enjoying smooth sailing in both his personal and professional life. How does he feel about his current situation? When interviewed by this magazine, Kiyohara replied, “I’m living a calm life.

“I’m living a calm life. I will continue to do what I can to deal with my drug treatment and depression. I would like to refrain from answering questions about my family.

Step by step, Kiyohara continues to make steady progress. The day of his complete recovery is near.

Kazuhiro Kiyohara’s new life with his dog “Tsunekichi” is smooth sailing.
