Narimiya Hiroki for Norton 2011

On the 25th, actor Narimiya Hiroki (27) attended a press event for PC security software 'Norton 2011' in Tokyo. Looking back at filming for the CM where he took on roles as a stalker, swindler and gangster, he comments, "From early morning on, tension was high. It was difficult." Personally, he spends about 3 hours a day on the net working through mails and shopping. So far, he has not encountered cyber viruses, but "Friends have been victims before, and it causes a mental strain. I'll be more careful next time."

To All the Fans

It's been a while

Promotion for Anniversary Book 10 has also ended,
things have somewhat calmed down

This 10th anniversary,
to be able to reach this turning point
There's a part of me that feels relieved

Listening to many people
Speaking about various topics
Next time
I think it makes you feel tense

It's sudden, but
at the end of this month
this site will close

For it to close down
It's regrettable

Thinking about it
It's heart-breaking

For the 11th year
What should I aim for to move forward?
I'll be thinking about it seriously

From now on
Please support Narimiya

Narimiya Hiroki
10th Anniversary Photobook

On the 3rd, actor Narimiya Hiroki attended a press conference and handshake event for fans at Shibuya's PARCO where he debuted 10 years ago. The event was to commemorate the release of his photobook 'Hiroki Narimiya Anniversary Book 10', which showcases his journey in the entertainment industry through the decade. Interacting with his 2000 fans, he commented, "It's been a distinct Narimiya Hiroki for the past 10 years." The secret to being an actor and involved in various activities? "Well, actually once I rest (reluctantly), I'll start to forget about things! That's how it is with me."

10 years ago, he made his debut at PARCO Theatre which was nearby. "At that time, I had a vision of myself 3, 5, 10 years down the road. I wish I was cool enough to say that, but in reality, back then I felt insecure and uneasy. Right now, being able to stand here is beyond my imagination." In the past, he had thoughts about quitting being an actor, "The director got mad at me and I thought I should just disappear, but then I saw that the posters had been printed... I realized that I was being a coward," he recalled.

Now he's a popular mature actor who gets leading roles in movies and dramas. "At this point, is it good?" he seemed to be wondering himself. Regarding his activities in the future, "I want to laugh, and have fun doing them. I'd like to try producing more entertainment-related projects."

Narimiya Hiroki
The Ideal Boyfriend

On the 17th, actor Narimiya Hiroki attended eye make-up and nail care company Koji's campaign launch 'Love In Your Eyes' as its image character. In conjunction with the campaign, a cellphone novel based on the theme of 'close-range love' is produced. Narimiya commented on his own romantic experiences, "I've been jilted so many times. Why? Reasons like I can't meet, or it's just not real." He was frank about how being busy with work has led to disappointments in his personal life.

In the cellphone novel, Narimiya plays the role of an 'Ideal Boyfriend'. He's the sole character as he speaks to the camera. "It felt a bit awkward as it's just from the camera's point of view, and not having lines with someone else was quite unsettling," he said.

Narimiya who's usually 'shy and has stranger anxiety', revealed more about his private life, "Just being meek doesn't work. You have to show all your cards. Tactics? I think I used to be good at those, but it's already in the past." When asked about achieving a certain victory, he said with a wry smile, "I guess you convey your emotions through your eyes. But not staring for too long, just a gaze kind of feeling."

The cellphone movie and novel for the 'Love In Your Eyes' campaign will be available from 21st August onwards.

Watch the press conference and CM & Making.

Narimiya Hiroki
Full Disclosure in his Photobook

On the 6th, it was revealed that actor Narimiya Hiroki (27) would be releasing a photobook on July 1st to commemorate his 10th year anniversary debut. The book is at least 3cm thick, with more than 170 pages - about double the number of pages of a normal photobook. It has taken 6 years to put the book together - 'Hiroki Narimiya Anniversary Book "10"' (Kadokawa Group Publishing, 2800 yen) is the end result. It is a collection which reflects on his journey over the past 10 years, hence making it a "very thick" photobook.

Narimiya reassures that the photobook is luxurious both in quantity and quality. The difference is the thickness of this book. Usually, photobooks have about 80 - 90 pages; this one has 170 pages, about double that of a normal one. Because of the high quality of paper used, the book will be at least 3cm thick. It's quite similar to textbooks used by high school students, so it could be termed the 'Narimiya History Textbook'.

Narimiya's past, present and future are in the book. He has always been involved in the project, it contains insights as well as 'hot' photos. There are more than 100 pages in the photo corner, including semi-nude shots, and over 250 off-shot photos taken by his manager.

The book also includes public interviews and private conversations between Narimiya and 10 key persons, including actor Oguri Shun and Shinagawa Hiroshi, director for the movie 'Drop'. Narimiya is satisfied with the completed book, "10 years as an actor, there's still a lot for me to learn, but I'm happy to have reached this milestone. It has given me many chances to go through different experiences."

Narimiya made his debut 10 years ago on 1st July 2000, in a stageplay at Tokyo's Shibuya Parco Theatre. A handshake event to commemorate the sale of his photobook will be held at the Libro Shibuya Store on 3rd July. Tickets for the event will be distributed at the same store on 11th June from 10am onwards.

Busy Searching

It's the 2nd day in Yugawara

was the overnight

I entered the bath
Feeling slightly tipsy
I didn't notice any ghosts...

I felt refreshed in the morning

But staying all alone
in a ryokan
Can be quite scary~

All the while
I forgot that I was actually in a ryokan
Suddenly though it came to me

The staff asked me
"Did you go out yesterday?"
But I was really fast asleep

Or maybe
It's just that the ryokan was so wonderful

I found these at the ryokan

I really miss these

"Where's Wally"

I love them

I used to have the whole volume
I wonder where they are now

Without delay
We searched for Wally together

Hana-chan is really quick
Somehow Izumi is always last

It's like the opposite
from the drama

We're all getting along well
during filming~

This has been Shinagawa Daichi.

Overnight Stay

For today's filming...
I'm in Yugawara

I went to the waterfall

I rang a bell on a hill

I got into the bath

Quite an active day

Despite this being an overnight stay,
I only brought my pants and PC
as I overslept this morning

Because this is a rustic and lovely ryokan
There's no internet connection


Well it can't be helped!!

This has been Shinagawa Daichi.

YanMega x Tumbling

Filming in the studio today

Daito dropped by the set
for a visit


This photo
might be kinda hard to understand

It's been a while since we last met
He's become really cool
Surprised me

Filming for Tumbling
Seems to be absurdly difficult

Even though he was grumbling about it
He returned to the studio

And then...

For me
Filming was over for the day

To midtown
To do some shopping

For today too
Thanks for the support

Episode 3


It's the third episode of YanMega today

Yet another problem child
It's one of our members
How do you think it'll develop?

The whole day through today I was in bed
All the time just in bed

I didn't walk
Unless I needed to go to the toilet or eat my meals


I think it'll be the same tomorrow...

Narimiya, the Mysterious Monkey

On the 6th, actor Narimiya Hiroki attended the product launch for new chewing gum 'Stride' as its CM character at the Harajuku Quest Hall. The teaser monkey CMs for an unknown product have been on-air, and now it is revealed that the monkey was played by Narimiya in special make-up. Narimiya will be featured in a new CM from the 10th onwards, in conjunction with the commencement of the gum sales. "There are not many chances in life where you can become a monkey ne," Narimiya commented. It took 11 hours of applying special make-up for him to transform into the monkey.

On My Mind


Thank you for all the comments this week

After a few days off

Filming has resumed

This is the swallow's nest at filming location

Right now doing its best
The mama bird is sitting and warming the eggs

Somehow I feel quite worried

Little birds from the nest
I'd like to see them soon

When I complete filming
I wonder if the birds would still be in the nest?

It's like a warm feeling ne

Even though it's April!?


The moment I left home this morning…
I got a shock

So cold

Seems like it's snowing in Tokyo

That's what I thought, still half asleep
I got into the car

Today's clothes

2 pairs of pyjamas [laugh]

It was just turning warm recently
This intense cold troubles me

It's easy to catch a cold in this kind of weather

Are you ok?
Are you coming down with a cold?

This morning I was on Ousama no Brunch

Quite nerve-wrecking

After that recording for another programme

YanMega will air
in a week

The first episode will be completed soon too


I joke around when I'm nervous [laugh]

It'll be great if it turns out to be an interesting drama

Recently I've been using twitter as well so be a follower, yoroshiku

Once in a while

Well then

Not as Shinagawa Daichi
But working as Narimiya Hiroki

Advertisement photography as the image character for KOJI-san

Being in the 2nd year
I'm now able to talk a lot
With the company president and everyone

Actually... I'm a shy person [laugh]

Look forward to the posters
That will be up in June

Somehow during lunch break
We started to talk about planning for old age

It's catching up

I have to do my best now
It's important!!

That's kinda what I feel

But this sense of urgency
Gives me motivation
To gain more experiences

Do I have my house keys today!?

Seems like I really need
Crisis control

Today's filming
was of the family sitting together

There's something heartwarming

But then
A family scene always involves a battle

During interval
I had miso ramen with Hori Chiemi-san
who plays the role of Daichi's mother

There was much garlic
in the miso ramen

Right now, I'm...


After this
Filming continues, I'll do my best with garlic power!!

Popular Person

Good morning

Continuing into the 2nd day
Filming for YanMega

Because I have so many turns, in the midst of the scenes
I didn't know if I was still being filmed or not

Daichi was popular [laugh]

I had a slight cold
Wasn't feeling good

After a session of IV drip
This morning I felt totally fine

My body's that simple??

In the next studio
Izumi Pinko-san was filming
She passed by our studio
And had refreshments for us!

Croquette and minced beef cutlet



I ate them with everyone else


Thank you very much

What filming was about...
