Posted in Feelings, Friends, Japanese Culture, Surprise


I’m Japanese and currently living in Tokyo.

But surprisingly, my overseas friends update me on Japanese games, anime, manga, songs and even singers.

This time, again, non-Japanese introduced me a Japanese rock group: ONE OK ROCK.

Among Japanese, we call this band, WANOKU – shorter version of ONE OK ROCK.

I’ve seen a vocal on TV, but I registered him as WANOKU so it didn’t click to me when I was introduced to a band, ONE OK ROCK.

It clicked to me when I listened to their music on YouTube.

A vocal, Taka appears on a talk show.

His parents are both famous Enka (Japanese traditional songs) singers: Masako Mori and Shinichi Mori – no wonder, he has nice voice to sing.

And he was once a member of famous pop group, NEWS.

He was singing pop music then, but he decided to leave the group to sing what he wants to sing – rock music.

He stayed in the US to polish his English so he also sings in English, allowing them to conduct world tours – no wonder the group is popular in overseas.

Thanks to WordPress to connect me to people abroad!


Currently living in Tokyo. I would love to share feelings, food, places and things that I do!!
