After a 15-minute drive from the Honolulu airport towards Waikiki, you arrive at downtown Hawaii with its many government administration offices. One person who has in recent times been spotted around this area increasingly often is Tsunku♂ (47).
“Tsunku♂ and his family received their visas in June after which he bought a house in the downtown area and emigrated there at the end of July with his wife, soon-to-be 8-year-old twins, and 5-year-old daughter. Their children are already attending a local school. After losing his vocal cords to laryngeal cancer in 2014, Tsunku♂ decided to take the plunge with the hopes of doing more work overseas, as well as raising his children to be global people. He currently splits his time between Japan and Hawaii.” (Tsunku♂’s acquaintance)
Prior to their emigration, Tsunku♂’s children were attending an international school in Tokyo, meaning they were already accustomed to being around the English language as well as non-Japanese people.

Alo-Hello at Tsunku’s house!

Hasn’t he already been living there for the past couple of years?

I want him to write lots of Hawaii-ish songs like Shanimuni.

I’m actually pretty shocked. This means there’s pretty much no chance of him ever producing H!P again.

Nowadays anything is possible with the internet.

If he communicates using the computer now anyway, what difference does it make if it’s over the internet or not?

He’ll still be able to write songs over there, and it could mean that he’s going to write songs that are more cheerful. He’s pretty much never going to see any of the members anymore though. (laughs)

I feel like Chayu is living in Hawaii, too.

Along with Kame, right?

Let’s have a concert in Hawaii.

Maybe Tsunku♂ will now start making appearances at the Hawaii tours.

It’s strange how many celebrities love Hawaii.

I guess this means coffee at Up-Front is going to be all-you-can-drink from now on.

So he’s severing all ties with H!P and the office, huh…

What? Even though they grow coffee in Hawaii?

This was true with both my grandpa and my dad: it’s like in the end, the meaning of life for men always becomes leaving something behind for their children.

As long as Tsunku’s happy, that’s all that matters. Still, I do feel lonely that he’s not in Japan anymore. Knowing how much he loves rice though, I wonder if he’ll be able to find delicious brands in Hawaii. Maybe he could have it flown over?

There’s a lot of nikkeijin in Hawaii, so there’s plenty of supermarkets with products specifically aimed at Japanese people. They’re super expensive though… Even stuff that’s costly to begin with can be like twice the price over there!

I can’t wait to hear how the air, the sun and the humidity of Hawaii is going to be reflected in Tsunku’s songwriting from now on.
Welcome back Henkka!!
That’s a good decision from Tsunku-san, he just enjoy his life with entire family, especially getaway from “wota-madness”
I want an Alo-Hello with Tsunku going down water slides! :D
And in related news, Coconuts Musume is being reformed. They will be changing their name to Coconut Girls and Hotzmic will be a member. Please wait for further updates as to who will be the Playing Manager.
Man, if it’s Hotzmic I’m totally into it.
Or Sayu will come back and become the group’s playing manager?
I would love that for sure!
Oi, you better not get up my hopes for nothing lol
I’m always relieved to hear something about Tsunku-san… I want him and his family to be happy! and Hawaii is the perfect location to be happy ^^ thank you Henkka for sharing!
OK, not wanting to sound too negative here but… Hawaii is a fantastic place… to go on vacation. If Tsunku really wants his kids to become global, London, NYC or LA would be way more appropriate. Paradise is only fun for a few days. Then it gets frustratingly boring. Especially after you become a teenager.
(And I know what I’m talking about, I too come from a gorgeous place. I couldn’t wait to finally turn 18 and get the hell out of there. Now I enjoy going back on vacation to visit my family. But thank God I don’t live there anymore).
That said, best of luck to Tsunku and his family.
Some people like a quiet life, like me. So dont assume that everybody wants the same thing
I guess the advantage is that the kids can learn English easier on Hawaii than in Japan. Maybe they’ll go to NYC and the like later in life to study stuff.
