When you switched on the TV, there they were again on a game show. Arashi which literally means ‘storm’, consists of 5 members who are Ohno Satoshi (大野智, born 1980), Sakurai Sho (櫻井翔, born 1982), Aiba Masaki (相葉雅紀, born 1982), Ninomiya Kazunari (二宮和也, born 1983) and Matsumoto Jun (松本潤, born 1983). Ohno has the most melodic voice in the group and is very talented in dancing.
Then you walked into the music store, and you saw these people again on the album cover on a rack. They debuted in Hawaii in 1999 with their first single A. He has choreographed a few dances for Arashi’s songs such as Bittersweet, Tokei Jikake no Umbrella, TRAP and for most of his solo songs.

In addition to his talent in choreography, he is also talented in drawing, sculpting, and photography.
In 2008, he held his first art exhibition called Freestyle in Osaka, Nagoya, Tokyo, Sapporo, and Fukuoka.
However, when he came out of the establishment, a woman was holding on to him tightly. Her identity has been revealed to be former actress “A” (24) and Ohno’s current lover.
In July 2015, he held his second art exhibition called Freestyle 2 in Japan, and Freestyle 1 in Shanghai. He had also released a Freestyle 2 photobook which contains the pictures of his artwork, and some behind-the-scene pictures.
He also designed the merchandise that was sold during the exhibitions.
Arashi, the Japanese word for storm, was chosen by Johnny's to represent the group's thrust of "creating a storm in the entertainment world." Arashi is currently the only debuted group in Johnny's that is written entirely in Kanji.
Their debut single, "A・RA・SHI", became the theme song for the 8th World Cup of Volleyball hosted by Japan in 1999.
