He uses self-taught techniques to express the themes of the importance of having dreams, irreplaceable friends, and his unforgettable hometown.

His debut single, “Dream of Life”, will be released on December 7th by Warner Music Japan. It will include two other songs, “My Friend” and “Music on my mind“.

Additionally, Ito is scheduled to hold a live concert on October 20th at shibuya 7th floor.

Woohoo, Fukuoka. A little too skinny for my taste, but he`s not bad looking and actually looks kind of older for his age. There are some pretty hot guys out and about in Fukuoka city, it always surprises me when I go there for shopping and whatever. :)

Yeah, it`s crazy that there seem to be so many of them per population. When I go to Tokyo, there seem to be a lot less per population out and about. And I`ve heard from various Japanese from different parts of Kyushu that Kumamoto is known for pretty girls, but I haven`t been around downtown before.

Kudos on the fine boyfriend. He better be treating you well. ;)
