The other day you said that you want to try bungee jumping, so have you tried it?

I haven’t tried it. I said that I want to try was just a joke, but because it looks like became a real talk, so I was thinking “could I run away from this”, but…….some people knew about this uh? (LOL)

So, you feel it’s impossible?

No. But I think I will get scared. As my age become older, I became scared to high place. It’s scary.

How many guitar you have? Do you give name to your guitar? I want to give name to my guitar, so if you have recommendation please tell me!

Hmm..I think it’s about 10 or no? I have 5 acoutic guitars, as for electric guitar, I have few….not less than 10 I think (LOL). My friend gave name “Stephanie” to my acoustic guitar. “Why is it a foreign name?” I asked my friend. That kind of name is interesting, right?  Maybe you can give name “POCI”

Japan-ish name is not good? such as “masako” for example.

That’s good. I think(e.u band) member’s ARISA give name to her keyboard. Japan-ish name. I think it’s “Takashi”

So, you don’t give name to your guitars, right?

I don’t.

Do you have any plans for a world tour?

There are no plans at all yet (Haha). If I had the courage I would like to do it.


When driving, what sort of music do you like to listen to?

?Jason Mraz???????????John Mayer?Jason Mraz???????????????????????????????????????????????
Jason Mraz is fine anywhere. I like John Mayer, Jason Mraz, as well as the radio, because I can listen to new songs. What? Who is this person? and I investigate about the artist with that feeling.


I’m the Canadian who participated in the es.car dance during the HK Live. It was very fun. What style of dance would YUI-san like to try out?

Enyakora style, maybe? lol. Since I can’t really dance, (can’t figure out what this is) is also difficult, even though it’s not a dance, a dance that I can remember immediately would be good.

Enyakora = A chant/yell used while dancing in ancient Japan.


A question from Singapore. What are you most afraid of?

Cockroach!? Society! maybe. What’s there I wonder? Even though I say I’m afraid of it, it’s not something that will create an unpleasant feeling. Doesn’t a cockroach make you imagine things?

How about ghosts?

I’m afraid of ghosts too but…

Are you fine with bugs?

U~un, no way. I grew up close to nature but, as I grew up, I developed a fear of bugs, and unfortunately became scared of touching them. It’s gross when their legs come off that’s why. It’s kind of pitiful so I don’t touch it.

Are frogs and snakes ok?

I guess maybe I can touch green frogs. They are like little dinosaurs, I’m scared already.

?Midorigaeru =  Japanese tree frog


If you could travel in time, would you like to travel to the past or future, and what would you like to do?

I definitely have to go don’t I. I guess it would be the past. It would definitely be bad to see my future. I’ll go back to the past, and eat a christmas cake. The one I had when I was an elementary school student.

If I could add on, what if you could meet someone like Ryouma Sakamoto, or Marie Antoinette, etc.

I guess I would meet Queen Himiko? ah, Kiyosirou Imawano-san, Donto-san too. I want to try listening to people like them speak.

?????(Ryouma Sakamoto)
It’s difficult to explain but, he’s someone in Japanese history who was very popular.

???? (Himiko)
A queen when Japan was still called Wakoku (Weiguo) by Chinese rulers (AD200)

??????????(Kiyosirou Imawano)

???? (Donto)
The person who was BO GUMBOS’ vocalist
YUI wrote it in her diary about [Yume no Naka] from the DVD [Time Bokaan]

?????????[Tunnel Nukete]


If YUI-san could spend 1 day with a fan, what would you like to try doing together?

That sounds fun eh?

How about a barbecue?

ah! good idea!

I received a praise lol

A barbecue would be good eh. Barbecue is good! BBQ!


Please tell us 3 criteria for choosing a new home when changing residences.

The most important factor is the ambiance. When you enter the home and an image of a good life wells up, that would be good. Next is the environment of the neighbourhood. If it is close to nature, near a convenience store, as well as good security etc. First is your affinity I think, with the room.
