NIPPON no ARASHI

NIPPON no ARASHI1

The popular Japanese Idol group ARASHI have donated copies of their book, which is not available for purchase, to around 40,000 elementary and middle schools across Japan. As the book is not available in the shops there have been floods of enquiries, it is difficult to find even in school libraries due to the large number of reservations that have been made. All five members of ARASHI chose a destination that they would like to visit, and their experiences are featured in the book.
