– Maru is the beatboxer of KAT-TUN, and has beatboxed in most of KAT-TUN’s songs/concerts.

– Maru is a peacelover and he is known to stop the fights in KAT-TUN as well as console others. Whenever Kamenashi Kazuya and Akanishi Jin fight, he locks them into a room until they stop fighting.

– Maru also uses a special technique when shopping. He follows people who he thinks dress well into their favorite shops, where he would then shop as well. When he was asked, “What if that person you’re following isn’t going into a clothes shop?” He replied,” Well, I trust my instincts…and if they don’t go into a shop, I’ll go out and follow another persons!”

– His nickname is “Yu”, so when he went to the first Johnny’s audition and Johnny-san called out: “Hey, YOU!” in English, Maru thought: “How does he know my name?!”.

– He hates being “N” in KAT-TUN because he’s last in everything. He thinks people only like his beat-boxing and that apart from that people don’t notice him.

– KAT-TUN always (used to) mock him and say “Your wig’s on wrong!” and “Why don’t you pluck your eyebrows?”.

– He thinks he looks like a koala bear because of his nose.

– He met his ideal girl in a dream, but he didn’t know she was the one at first. He didn’t really notice her, but gradually her kindness and friendly attitude won his heart and he fell in love with her after many dreams.

– He loves strawberries and strawberry picking.

More information

Tanaka Koki, or Koki, is recognized as the rapper of KAT-TUN and has a hip-hop-influenced style. Out of the group, Koki is most often paired up with Nakamaru Yuichi and they form TaNaka, a comedy group. Koki loves to design things as he is a very artistic guy. Most of his concert clothes are designed or sewn by him. For the concert “Kaizokuban”, he bought a plain white sweater, pants, and a hat, and sewed designed it to be more suitable for a concert.

He went to University in Japan and of KAT-TUN he is the most highly educated. A while after the group KAT-TUN was formed he wanted to quit JE to further his studies, but Johnny Kitagawa of Johnny’s Entertainment said to him ,”If you leave now, you will never accomplish anything in your life,”. Now, Koki says if he could be a child again he’d just study, study, study.

Koki is known as merely “the rapper”. But behind his cool, sometimes scary act, Koki has a big adorable personality. While the other members concentrate so hard on acting mature and serious, Koki keeps KAT-TUN light-hearted. He puts on a big show of craziness to make people smile, making faces and doing silly actions on stage.

Off-camera he is a warm and gentle person (this is agreed by the other members of KAT-TUN), who loves animals with such a passion that he wants to someday live surrounded by them. He wants a big family, because he loves children, and wants a wife he can spoil rotten.

One of his hobbies is actually reading wildlife books! Koki loves the US and speaks quite a lot of English. Any English you hear in his raps is always written by him, and with interesting phrases like “the die is cast”, he’s pretty impressive. He loves to write lyrics, though people often ignore his intelligent and unique lyrics because he raps them.

Nakamaru is his best friend, although before KAT-TUN were formed they barely ever spoke. The two of them seem to share a kind of private friendship that isn’t easily noticed by outsiders, since both of the boys are private types of people. But off-camera Koki is an affectionate person, and Nakamaru recieves most of his affections.

Koki also has an odd kind of obsession with Jin. In the 2003 rap “SIX GROOVE”, he wrote about Jin: “He has a dirty body and a sexy voice…”. And when Jin dressed up as a nurse for the KAT-TUN Clinic sketch, Koki wrote a poem saying “your nurse uniform made my heart ‘hira-hira’.” He thinks Jin makes a very sexy woman, and was also quoted as saying that if he had to choose a member of KAT-TUN to be his lover, it would be Jin.

That doesn’t mean Koki is gay, though. A while ago he was dating a sexy female model, even though it was against the company rules. When they ended up breaking up, his reason was: “It was based on lust and not love.”

Although Koki likes sexy women (and has a thing for breasts), he is a great believer in true love and wants to marry the right woman someday. She has to be a big lover of kids and animals to fit in with his dream, and he has an appealing fate in store for the lucky girl: “I’ll go anywhere for her, do anything for her, whatever she wants. If she said she wanted something from a place miles away, I’d get on a train right away and go get it for her.”

Taguchi Junnosuke, or Junno as he is often called, is part of Johnny’s Entertainment group KAT-TUN. He is best known for being the most acrobatic, the tallest, as well as the only left handed member in the group. Apart from appearing in numerous concerts, tv shows, commercials and musicals as a member of KAT-TUN, he has starred in one movie, Mohouhan, alongside SMAP’s leader Nakai Masahiro and one dorama, Ganbatte Ikimasshoi alongside NewS’ Nishikido Ryo. Initally, he wasn’t cast as Nakata Saburo, his character in Ganbatte Ikimasshoi, but he was chosen to replace Uchi Hiroki, who was suspended for drinking in public while underage.

While KAT-TUN were performing in the theatre production “Dream Boy”, Junno sustained a serious back injury in rehearsals. He was in hospital for months and got very lonely. During his stay in hospital he became more humble and less confident in himself. Because the other KAT-TUN members didn’t visit him much, he thought no one liked him. But then they came and brought gifts, and soon Junno was recovering well. He managed to overcome his back injury and return to dancing and acrobatics.

He thinks that living together before marraige is the wrong thing to do, and that couples should show commitment. He admires Koichi Domoto from the KinKi Kids.

– Kame seems to have a good relationship with his family.
When he was younger, he and his father often went to watch baseball games together, or they went to play together.

– Kame sometimes babysits his niece, something he loves to do.
According to Kamenashi, he has become more and more skillful at calming her down when she cries, using gentle kisses.

– Kamenashi’s mother used to wake him up in the morning and cook him “wonderful meals“. Kame, in turn, helped her around the house and went shopping for her.

– When he was younger, his mother used to massage his legs after rehearsals when he came home, because otherwise he would get leg cramps at night.

– During baseball games among brothers, he affectionately calls Yuya, his little brother, “little punk” because he’s better at baseball than he is.

Johnny’s Entertainment

– Auditioned for Johnny’s Junior on November 8, 1998 together with Nakamaru Yuichi and Akanishi Jin.

– His first Johnny’s Jr. concert was “Johnny’s Jr. Fresh Spring Concert ’99” in May 1999.


“When I threw away my baseball gloves after losing a competition once. my father said to me: “You have to learn to treasure and appreciate the things/people that you think are important.” (E-Pop, November 2005)

– He has represented Japan in the Junior leagues.

– The person who got him into liking baseball was the owner of a shop near where he lived.

– Kamenashi is known for his exceptional baseball skills, which earned him victories in many friendly games, and even against professional baseball teams like the Hanshin Tigers.

Shuji to Akira

During late 2005, Kamenashi Kazuya and Yamashita Tomohisa (member of NEWS) both starred in the hit series “Nobuta wo Produce”. As extra promotion, both of them formed the temporary unit “Shuji to Akira” (“Shuji and Akira”), the names of their fictional characters in the drama.

Their single became the no. 1 best selling single on the Oricon Yearly Single Rankings in 2005, although the single had only been released in November, two months before the ranking.


“Women are my weakness – I just can’t talk to them.”

– The flavour of the first valentine chocolates he received: strawberry

– When he was younger, he was very unconfident with women and found it quite difficult to talk to them.

– When he was younger, he described his favorite type of girl as: “boyish”, older than him, slim, physically fit, smells nice, has common sense, is understanding to men’s feelings, and has an a

ir of “purity and innocence”.

Nowadays, he offers us a more diplomatic response and claims he doesn’t have a particular favorite type of person, but he’ll just like the person he comes to like.
When interviewers do persist on getting to know his preferred type, he often says he wants a girl as optimistic and strong-willed as he is, with a pure spirit and a clever mind.

– In the May 2005 issue of Myojo, Kame said the eyes are the most important feature of a person, and that he could fall in love with someone if they had a nice scent.

– In the October 2005 issue of Myojo, Kame replied this to “What do you have to offer the person you like?”: I will heal her physically and emotionally and we will have an exciting relationship. We can bathe together and I will trim the person’s eyebrows. (!?)

– Although he says he feels intimidated by women, he insists that he would not hesitate to take hold of his girlfriend’s hand if she was too shy to hold his.

“It’s my ideal to be in love with my partner for a long time and then marry her.” (Wink Up – September 2004)

Akanishi Jin

Ah yes, the infamous “Akame” pairing…

Besides the obvious fact that Akanishi is a colleague of Kamenashi… [under construction]

Yarakashi [under construction]

Yarakashi fans are “fans” who are disruptive and do not follow the rules issued by Johnny’s Entertainment.

During KAT-TUN’s “Real Face” concert tour in Osaka and Tokyo, Kamenashi became the target of the yarakashi for unknown reasons.

The following are a few examples of what they wrote on their uchiwas, directed towards Kame: “Kame, go and die”, “Disgusting”, “Shup up” etc.

One day, at the beginning of Kame’s MC, a certain “fan” suddenly screamed “Kamenashi, shut up!”. Kame became speechless for awhile, and according to various fan reports, he looked as if he was on the verge of tears as a close-up of his face was shown on the big screens.

A few fans also reported that Kame’s eyes seemed to be puffy and red the next day(s), as if he had been crying a lot.

Kame, usually the main spokesman during KAT-TUN’s MC part, stayed quiet and didn’t smile or put on a fake smile instead.
So Maru and Koki took over Kame’s role and entertained the people during the MC instead. And even though Jin’s voice was already strained from singing, he kept shouting to cover up for Kame’s quietness.

But even so, the MC was shortened from the usual 40min to barely 15min.

During one of KAT-TUN’s concerts in Osaka, Jin shouted, “Yarakashi, shut up!”

After the “Kamenashi, shut up!” incident, Kame mentioned that his friends has called him to console him, but that he still felt really sad and would go to bed early (something he apparently does when he’s feeling sad).
He also seemed quite nervous during the next MC’s (he also kept looking at the other members) and would immediately start apologizing when he accidentally did or said something wrong.

On April 8, yarakashi were again aiming at Kamenashi, holding up uchiwa’s like “Go and die Kame!”.
When Jin and Kame both sang the wrong lyrics during “Real Face” and Koki asked why, Jin replied: “Today, I’m on Kame’s side.”
Nevertheless, the MC only lasted for 10min, with Jin sighing, “Let’s just sing.”


Apart from his supposed relationship with Koizumi Kyoko, Kamenashi has been the center of other scandals, including:

– Underage drinking scandal resulted in JE sueing the magazine.

Koizumi Kyoko

In early May of 2006, Kamenashi was involved in a minor scandal when tabloid magazine “Friday” (known for its untrue? rumors) published an article claiming Kamenashi and Koizumi were dating.

Koizumi Kyoko, born on February 4, 1966 and thus 20 years his senior, is a former idol (currently an established actress) and got divorced from actor Nagase Masatoshi a few years ago.
(For more information about Koizumi, please consult Wikipedia)

Johnny’s Entertainment denied the claims and Kamenashi officially

apologized, but Koizumi’s agency kept silent neither denied nor confirmed the rumor.
But although Johnny’s Entertainment officially denied their presumed relationship, journalists tend to dig up this story every so often in numerous magazines.

So was the affair true after all? No one can tell for sure. Some say they may have had a relationship for real, others say it’s been completely made up for promotional purposes, a.k.a to keep people talking about Kamenashi as well as Koizumi.
Fact is that the rumors tend to pop up each time KAT-TUN has a new release, or whenever Koizumi stars in a new drama or movie. But then again, Kamenashi has always claimed to prefer “older” women, so who knows..?
