"To be honest, Arashi’s music really has a lot of parts where we cannot develop freely according to our own will. But to be content with ourselves even under many different restrictions is also our style. ‘It’s precisely because it’s us that we can find pleasure in what we do’ kind of feeling. That’s probably very important too. If we can’t find the joy in what we do, then how can the fans do the same?"
