right? Wow I'm making a wild guess that most of them probably make a little over a quarter million a year ($250,000 USD)

Because if these extremely popular/overworked guys are just making this much, than everyone else is pretty much screwed in their salary! I honestly thought that people like Yamapi, Kame, and the rest of Arashi make like millions a year, but I guess not =[

Considering the boys have mentioned that they regularly take public transit? I highly doubt they make millions a year. :p

LoL..that public transit was before.......millions a year is how much a top earner in Japan should earn except for Ayumi hamasaki and Utada..their salaries are billions a yr.
