It’s the Bon Festival soon.
My mother’s hometown is at Kumamoto,
My father’s hometown is at Miyazaki,
At this season, I’ll start to remember about Kyushu.
When I went, I likened cucumbers to horses,
When I returned, I likened eggplants to cows.
At that time I was the default soccer boy who was suntanned to be completely black,
But during summer, I became the fair youth who wanted sunglasses badly.
This shot is very much in Shibuya.
There are times I get annoyed by the noise,
But I like Tokyo’s streets after all.
My skin has become fair,
But in my closet it’s full of black.
I search for impact in the simpleness,
Let’s have a wonderful summer in 2014.

Today I appeared at the “Cos Cos Play Play ONE PIECE special in Odaiba New World 2014″ ☆
Regardless of the bad weather, many people came, and it made me really happy!!
Thank you very much ☆
People who got wet from the rain, do relax in the bath today, and please be careful not to catch a cold!!
There are really many people who cosplayed so it raised my spirits too!!
I also wanted to cosplay (laugh)
Really thank you very much for today!!
I think everyone who checks my ameblo will already know this, but I was in America until yesterday!!
Summer holiday ☆
I went to the Grand Canyon, went to Sedona, and met lots of friends I haven’t met for a long time in LA and it raised my spirits, so it was really a fun journey!!
It would be good if I went to Hawaii and such, and had a relaxing journey, but I’m more suited for the type that always moves around (laugh)
Because I’m an impatient person!!
Ah!! The other day when I went overseas for work, I went to Maldives for the recording of “Woman on the Planet”!!
It’ll be broadcast on 8/16 (Sat), 8/23 (Sat) 23:30~23:55, so please be sure to watch it!!

Alright, August has started, we’re approaching the middle of the year.
It’s already the Bon Festival, I guess there will be many people returning home.
Alright, AAA will also release a new single, tomorrow, accurately, from today on, there will be loads of summer events, I’ll also go for recordings, after we’ve achieved that, immediately the second half of the tour will start, and when that’s finished, the preparations for the end of year will start.
When I think about it this way, it feels like, this year starts from now!
In order to not lose to the heat of summer, first, we’ll appear at events, and then we’ll go through with a-nation.
Summer is still not over!
Let’s create memories.
First we’ll do the first event “Cos Cos Play Play”!
As the title says, I think there will be many cosplayers.
This is something I personally look forward to.
I want to try cosplaying seriously once.

From today on I’ll steadily answer the questions I receive from everyone! (*^^*)
Well then without delay,
My height is also around the same as Chiaki-chan, please teach me the way to dress myself so I can be seen with a good style!
A. Thank you for the question, Marina-san!
I look for models and overseas celebrities of my height, and look at the balance of the lengths of their clothes, and use that as a reference ☆
Marina-chan can try to find some too (^-^)
Chiaki-chan, is there anything you will do without fail every day?? Please tell me!
A. Thank you for the question, Kawaai-san!
Hmm, recently every day, without fail, I guess it’s applying sunscreen after all (laugh)
I got a bit of a suntan, but I’ll do my best not to get my face tanned (^^)
“A yu chi a”
Chiaki-chan, why did you want to become a singer?
A. Thank you for the question, Ayuchia-san!
More than thinking of becoming a singer or an entertainer, since the time I was in my hometown, I’ve always wanted to try something new!
I didn’t want to continue school normally in my hometown, then I found the avex audition in 2004, and went for it ☆
Are there any hairstyles you want to challenge from now on?
A. Thank you for the question, Sayajiro-san!
It’s summer so I want it to look cheerful again~
Now I have a bit of highlight in my hair, so maybe I should make it all in one tone, so it looks cheerful~!!!
Chia-chan, around what age were you when you had the most fun time of your life?
A. Thank you for the question, Emichii-san!
The most fun time of my life is always “now” (^^)
There are many tough times too, but I want to make now the most fun time!!
Thank you very much for the many questions, everyone!
From now on, I’ll also answer non-stop, so it can be about anything, so please give me lots of questions (*^^*)
Please apply through the fanclub site or AAA mobile at “Here is the question to Chiaki-chan!”!
Well then see you next week~

* – Sorry for being so late on translations!! August was a busy month for me, because I was rushing around going for interviews and job hunting. Well, now I’ll probably be able to translate every week if I’m not busy, but please know that there will be other things that I prioritize over this, as this is my leisure. Of course, I’ll still put all my effort in translating, just that it might delay. Please understand that and I’m really sorry for it.
Recently I’m also quite behind on AAA (as well as other idols), but don’t worry, I don’t intend to stop translating, and I still love AAA a lot!! (Just that I’m not sure what they’re currently up to hehe ^^;)

When I’m going to write the blog
I’ll say “1, 2!!”
And reflect on various things
Think about them,
Should I write this
Should I not write this
This is good in this season, things like that
I’ll erase what I wrote
Write it then erase it, and repeat this.
“In this period in the middle of summer
If I write things like this
I should write more fun things!!” I’ll end up thinking like that.
People read this blog at various timings
And their feelings are various too
No matter how I write it
Will everyone who read it enjoy it.
I’m always thinking about it.
To people who are down
To people who are cheerful… and to people who are energetic, and to people who aren’t energetic…
Hmm, it’s endless. (laugh)
I’m always thinking “It’s difficult”. This blog.
I wonder if there are people
Who write things like that on their blogs.
I try to predict it as I please. (laugh)
Well then, what do I want to write?
When I think about it, frankly
I don’t want to write anything.. (laugh)
It feels like a monologue.
I want to have a conversation. (laugh)
Usually there aren’t any person
That talks so much though.. (laugh)
Well, of course the style of writing
The feelings to convey
The grumbles that are written
It will become something like a diary.
Well, grumbles are a monologue too. (laugh)
Before, I always
Bring out my feelings
I would write them out, as long as I’m within the scope that I can write.
I was young. (laugh)
I didn’t do any significant things
To be reported out.
The things aren’t significant to me
But they are fun to the people who listen to it.
Or they’ll think “Ooh”.
If I have a wife at home
When I return
While eating dinner
While being asked
“Today, what work did you do?”
I’ll say “Well, today ♪”
And I might have topics to talk about.
Well, if that happens
I would want to hear more from my wife,
What did she do today.
No, maybe I would want to talk about it.
Or maybe both…
What am I saying. (laugh)
When I read this again
It feels troublesome. (laugh)
Just write something. (laugh)
The things that my heart values
If I do them on that day
I wouldn’t write about those things. (laugh)
Well, I would tell it to my wife. (laugh)
It’s natural that
I’m living alone at home
But, when I think “Eh, I’m alone”
Rather than feeling lonely
“Am I alright?
I’m already near thirty years old?” (laugh)
al-ways thinking about
Things that get me excited like music, acting
This kind of entertainment
So about my own life
About a normal lifestyle
How do I put this,
Things that naturally happen? Hmm… rather than saying things are natural,
Contents that can be gossiped??
Things like “Now, it’s the SALE period”?
Like, a feeling of disorder??
Like ~ing? (laugh)
Like, “Where am I?? Where am I now?? Oh well!”.
This kind of feeling,
Is continuing for many years. Yeah.
There’s myself who’s doing all these though.
And I’m continuing it daily,
And wants to complete them,
Somehow I don’t like this kind of report. (laugh)
I only want to show what I want to show.
Sometimes this kind of blog
Will feel like a certain part of myself,
Still has a human touch.
This is me at a certain instant
So just browse through this. (laugh)
I didn’t change.
Somehow this feels like a mail. (laugh)
And so, today
I kept talking about music.
With this person.

Musical appreciation date with my mother.
Shabu-shabu date with my brother.
Dinner date with my friends,
Lunch, taking a walk,
Shopping, beach and such…
When there is time,
I can go to different places, and the people I meet, the things I do, the food, the topics to talk about, and the appearances are all completely different, and I feel active within me.
When I do this, I can take it easy. Furthermore, it’ll make me desire for work too. Lucky.
Are you enjoying the summer holidays??
Recently I went to the beauty salon, it seems that the girl beside me came to color her hair right after her closing ceremony has ended.
I was like that back then too.
The unnaturally blackened hair after the summer holidays was the proof of youth.
Sometimes I would be a bit envious of the period where rules and rails exist, and it’s a bit frustrating (laugh)
When I realized it, it’s August now.
Well it’s hot. I like walking while sweating,
But there were lots of sweat on my arm that’s carrying the bag
It’s surprising. Don’t you think so??
Anyways now I have to save myself from the damage of UV light, so I’m blogging while putting on a face pack.
And I’m also eating the chocolate bar my brother gave me.
Because he specially brought it during the time we ate shabu-shabu.
The pieces of summer memories, are all full of different colors, it seems like a colorful puzzle. Happy.
Recently on TV, it often shows the theme of doing things alone
It seems that to be doing things alone has become common more and more… But with this, you’ll start to yearn for the fun times when you share with others.
But I want to try it,
Grilled meat by myself (laugh)
When eating alone, doesn’t it feel like the “delicious~” in my heart will spread slowly throughout my body?
I like that.
If I do it, I’ll say it, surely.
I wonder if it’ll feel lonely?
Or, will I appeal to you all that it’s not lonely?
But, I’m completely fine with
Soba or set meal or curry by myself
So the borderline of going to grilled meat alone has gradually become thinner.
I always want to create memories with the people I treasure
Anyways I will enjoy summer in various forms.
