Olympic Rehearsals


Bom dia Rio!! (Good Morning Rio, in Portuguese)

Good Morning in many, many languages.

GOOD MORNING

It is the start of a new week.

Is everyone viewing the Olympics too…?

I am for sure watching it.

This week has been another profound week for the Olympics,

With lots of spectacular moments…

【It’s the timezone-lag Olympic (/ ω `●)”】


[MONDAY]

(221st day of 2016)

It’s a new week starting off with Monday.

I woke up early this morning again

To watch Judo and Table Tennis in the Olympics…Today, amidst the heated energy of competition,

I could feel the warm air pass on by.

Still, the plaza under the sunshine is undeniably hot, As the cicadas cheerfully keep on crying.

Even though the wind that blows fells good…

With the sunlight, the sun is so bright,

And in this heat, only my face gets burned in this suit…

My face looks red like a drunk… it sores…

Let us all do our best tomorrow!!


[TUESDAY]

(222nd day of 2016)

This morning, I woke up at 2am,

And being unable to sleep,

I started my long day.

A hot Tuesday, being 37℃/98°F.

My body keeps on sweating over and over…

Although the wind blew yesterday…Today, there is no wind, so it’s a breezeless heat...

Again today is another rehearsal for the live event,

With only so much time left until it…

Rehearsing one time everyday.


[WEDNESDAY]

(223rd day of 2016)

I had woken up at 2am again last night,

However, I did my best to sleep well too.

I presume it was a deep sleep with a lot of dreams...

This morning I woke up at 5am to see the Canoe competition.

It’s a difficult competition where you go against the current, while weaving between the poles…

It’s a difficult yet cool competition…

The flowing man-made river… Seeing it gave me this refreshing feeling.

Today, I cut off my front hair which had grown to my chin...

I thought that even if it grew long, my hair would be easy to set up, but…

I needed to put it up into a topknot like a Samurai

Or else it would get in the way, So I had no choice… clean cut.

Lately…I’ve been addicted to the taste of Egg Tofu and Tabasco.

Compared to yesterday, the temperature has lowered…

But it is nonetheless a hot Wednesday for me, So let’s go find some wind!


[THURSDAY]

(224th day of 2016)

I woke again at 2am this morning…

Yet, I did my best to sleep again and woke up at 5am instead.

Another day, where the Olympics is the start of my day…Finalists for the Women’s 70kg (154) and Men’s 90kg (198) Judo,

The Women’s team won the gold medal they sought for,

But even the other medalists have such beautiful smiles.The Men’s team also won gold, but the silver medalist On the other hand, had his head hung low, showing how upset he was…

But regardless of the medal they received, I believe it’s amazing to see them compete with honesty,

On that magnificent stage.

And there are also the refugee athletes, Who struggle even during the Olympics…I’ve received so much warm feelings from so many people…

Today, I was at Meguro and now in Shibuya…

At both places, we did our rehearsal.

And there are so many people on their way home..

So today must be a holiday (Mountain Day) \(´д`●|||)”

And there are those who are on vacation already...

Shibuya today is once again a sea of people and a jungle of heat…

And since my eyes have been feeling hazy today, so…

Wearing sunglasses. (I’m not Master Roshi… Ha hah)


[FRIDAY]

(225th day of 2016)

Today is a Friday full of clouds.

Today is the table tennis match for third-place…

A match of sweaty hands since the morning…And it is also the first medal for the Japan’s Men’s team (Bronze)

Amazing… I’m sure this gave hope to all the children who play table tennis.

Every athlete on the Olympic stage are delivering to the world

A blessing of warm strength…

If it’s summer, you gotta have this…

watermelons \(゜▽゜●)”

This was sitting in the refrigerator at home, just like “BAM! I’m here!”.

Although I prefer pears…

But this year, I haven’t eaten either…

I wonder if everyone has had either watermelons or pears…

Rest well during this summer...


[SATURDAY]

(226th day of 2016)

The night sky is pink.

Lately, the afternoon hasn’t been that hot, And the nights have been cool.

This morning began with the Olympics again,

And I had Hazelnut Toast with some chicken nuggets.

It’s been a while since I’ve had them.

Oh how delicious they are ((´▽`●)”…

Since this morning, I was surprised upon seeing an athlete pulling ahead,

In the Women’s 800m Freestyle...

Last time, it was a 15 year old getting the gold,

This time it’s a 19 year old setting a world record.

I was also surprised by the 35 year old from the Men’s 50m.

Age means nothing…

Even when I become an old man, I hope I can continue to stand on stage like I do.

Together with everyone from the Olympics…

May we all have a good weekend...


[SUNDAY]

(227th day of 2016)

I once again awoke at 2am and tried to sleep.

Waking again at 4:30am,

I tried sleeping again,

But as I turned the TV on while doing so, I became wide awake at the news, “Disband”…(゜Д゜●;)” What…?

The super idol group "SMAP" that has been around, since I was an elementary school child…They had collaborated with WORLD ORDER before.

The atmosphere of each of their members is amazing.

Just how amazing those five are, made me a fan of them, Wishing to become as fantastic as them when I grow up…

That was how I thought deep in my heart.

While I was tense during our collaboration…

The five of them keep shining no matter how old I get. I pray that they continue to shine on brightly from here on too.

Thank you very much.

Although I sweat on today… it’s a bearable heat…

Even on my way to and return from the hot Shibuya streets

There are so many people…

I’ll collect my thoughts, take a shower, Do the laundry, have a Highball and sleep!!

It’ll be a new week from tomorrow on. May I live it with warmth...

Thank you for your hard work this week, everyone.

I presume many people enjoyed resting this past week…

Were they able to enjoy the Olympics?

The first half of the Olympics is over, it seems…

I’m sure the second half will be filled with profound moments too…

Our live performance will be this coming Saturday, Sunday.

Our own Olympics has finally arrived before we realized…

To those who will come watch us…

And those those aren’t able to come…

And to those who are overseas...

May a gust filled with warmth blow by…Live on with warmth.

May everyone enjoy the new week with warmth.

May each day and hour of the week Be filled with kindness and gentleness...

May a gentle wind… kindly blow in everyone’s heart...

It’s alright. It’s alright.

The wind has blown

Now live your life!! \(゜∇゜●)/”

The moment when the entire world comes together...

【May the world be swept with a wind of smiles and profoundness… filled with kindness and warmth…】【Once again this week… one step at a time… may today continue onto a warm and gentle tomorrow…】To a new week…

Have a safe journey!!

Today again, I really thank everyone in the world.
