After debuting throughout the US last year, Jin tells us that he misses Japan.
Akanishi Jin: Japan is great! Our rice is frankly delicious.
Reporter: So how did you spend your New Year’s?
Jin: I met up with Nishikido Ryo-chan (from Kanjani 8)
Reporter: Oh, I see.
Jin: I also met Yamashita on a TV programme.
He also has this to say about Yamashita Tomohisa, a close friend of his who had left NEWS and gone solo.
Jin: I really support him both as a friend and as an artiste.
Reporter: When you say support, will the two of you work together in the future?
Jin: I think it will be interesting if we can do that.
