Ministry to establish team to battle bullies

Education minister Hirofumi Hirano plans to set up an internal team to help schools and boards of education curb bullying.

The initiative was prompted by intense media coverage of a suicide at a junior high school in Otsu, Shiga Prefecture, in which bullies allegedly pressured a 13-year-old boy to plunge to his death last October as his pleas for help went ignored.

On an NHK program Sunday, Hirano, minister of education, culture, sports, science and technology, described the envisioned team as "line troops" to work alongside those tasked with directly dealing with bullying.

It has been reported Yamada is the fourth Johnny’s talent to play the lead role of high school detective Hajime Kindaichi, following in the footsteps of Tsuyoshi Domoto (KinKi Kids) who starred in the first special drama in 1995, then Jun Matsumoto (Arashi), and Kazuya Kamenashi (KAT-TUN). The series was also made into a movie in 1997.

Tomohisa Yamashita denies having a new girlfriend, or going on holiday with a new girlfriend in Okinawa, Chunichi Sports and Daily Sports Online reports.

Recently, gossip magazines had reported Yamashita had been on holiday in Okinawa with his new girlfriend, a restaurant staff worker in Tokyo.

At yesterday’s fan event in Yokohama, Yamashita set the record straight.

“I haven’t had any time to go to Okinawa, and I don’t know this person who works at a restaurant.  It’s totally wrong.  I’ve been good and restraining myself.  I only open up in front of my fans.”

Talk about red underwear, boxer shorts, nipples, gossip, fans saw a new side of Tomohisa Yamashita during his fan event at Pacifico in Yokohama on July 24, reports Chunichi Sports.

With the release of his new album “エロP (Ero-P)” today and upcoming tour which starts this weekend, yesterday Yamashita let out his sexy side in front of 5000 fans who have always known him as a cool guy.

“That horniness inside of me that I’ve kept hidden since becoming a Johnny’s pop star has started to come out bit by bit this summer.  Today I’m wearing red underwear.  I like wearing boxer shorts more.”

It has been reported to make his point clearer, before the event, Yamashita had talked to the press about what his concept was for his upcoming tour.

“The tour is a fusion of Johnny’s and eros.  It’s something everyone can enjoy whether they’re a little girl or a mature lady.”

Yamashita had been going around the country on his fan event tour for fans who had bought his latest single “LOVE CHASE”.  At yesterday’s event, which was the last of the tour, the talent had enjoyed shouting out a lot of messages to his fans.

“You’re all that special someone to me.”

“You can see my nipples in the shower scene of my music video.”
