ARASHI’s Dairy Voyage

Japanese boy band ARASHI has amassed an army of followers over the two decades that they have dominated the Japanese music industry. Satoshi Ohno, Sho Sakurai, Masaki Aiba, Kazunari Ninomiya and Jun Matsumoto formed ‘ARASHI’ late in 1999. Since then they have achieved the most chart-topping hits in Japanese history. Their sell-out tours attract over 14 million attendees and they have sold a highly impressive 40 million CDs! Alas, all that was to come to a standstill as they announced during their 20th Anniversary Tour in 2019 that the band were taking a break. Only, in reality, they didn’t really get a break because they were filmed candidly for a year after the announcement; the footage of which compiled this Netflix Original documentary. Fans of the band have been distraught at the line ‘Five people, one final documentary’. So there we have it – ARASHI’s Diary Voyage.
