Dear my G-Lovers

My once in awhile stay in Tokyo
has also passed in a flash.

As always,
Haneda was packed with people.
Well, i almost feel like a non-Japanese though.


Right now i’m in the plane.
We’ll be landing soon.
I think it’s about 10 hours since we departed from Japan…

This time, because i definitely
had to attend a friend’s birthday,
i suddenly flew back to Japan.


it’s not enough to just appear at the party and leave.
But, at this age, I can’t say things like that too.

In the world of celebrities,
at parties or fashion shows,
or press releases and such a lot of different people show up,
so it may appear that i have that kind of extravagant image but,
I’m probably extremely simple…


I’m not particularly good at parties and,
in the past, the kind of people who appear at such events
are the kind who always mess around, and I don’t like that.
it’s probably become an important gathering place…
that’s what recognise as a man.


to purposely come back to Japan
for some ordinary party isn’t something I would do but,
this time I absolutely had to give them my greetings so,
I rearranged my schedule and made it back by all means.

Even for such a party,
I wonder when it became
that I could show up respectably for a greeting…


In the past i was really bad at it so,
when i had to do things like that,
I’ll be nervous all the way from a day ahead before the event.

It’s the same for lives.
More than the singing,
the pressure in me is much higher for what I ‘m going to say during the MC.
In the first place, it’s not my specialty.

Even so,
I cant just say i’m not going to show up.
Because I have no choice, I fervently studied it.

It’s easy to run away from thing just because you’re not good at it.
To be able to conquer it will take time.

It’s alright to take time to conquer things.
Things you can’t do now aren’t impossible to do.
To say you can’t do something
and not do anything about it is a sin.

You understand that right?
It’s the same no matter what it is.


Turn all the things you cant do into things you can do one by one.
While praising that you bit by bit,
and thinking “you’ve gotten a little better”…,
while going through life is not a bad thing
but on the contrary a wonderful thing to me.

That’s why,
I want everyone to hold on to a little more hope.
It’s not a big thing i’m talking about.

I’m saying something like “I’m alive so it’s not that bad”

For the guys who want to live and have gone ahead first too,
to them, we can definitely smile and continue on with life,
and isn’t it just one of the things that we have to do?

If it’s me I don’t know how far i can continue on.

But, to fear that and not do anything is wrong.

It’s okay regardless of when you go,
just live your life without regrets.

For that, you have to be reckless sometimes.
Of course,
it’ll eventually catch up with you,
so building a body that can take the recklessness
is one of the things what we have to do.


I’m definitely not a health junkie.
I’m just saying that you have to build a body and spirit that can
stand the impossible and the reckless.


I, with my weak body,
always end up on drip like this everytime I catch the flu but,
if i abstain from training everyday,
my body will just end up immobile.

Do what you have to do.

There are too many guys who can’t even do something this simple.
Haven’t your parents been telling you this since young?

It’s a simple thing.


Because it a simple thing,
don’t get annoyed with thinking that it’s monotonous,
think of it as something like brushing your teeth
and build it up day by day.

If someone says “I brush my teeth once a week”,
you’d think it’s naturally gradual right?

It’s the same thing.
Bit by bit… gradually.

To not think like that,
you yourself have to not let things end with such thoughts,
and everyday, do something to keep it going on.

Doing that will make you notice the small things
and be sincerely thankful for them,
and sincerely happy.


While living for the people who are precious to you,
simply celebrating them,
and being thankful to them
can make you sincerely glad.

Fill yourself with the thankfulness
of simply being alive.

My name is GACKT.
My motto is Mr. MOMENT.

What you think of at this moment in time,
will become part of your life.

Life is about collecting the moments.
Don’t think of life as long.

If your life were to end in an instant,
you’ll do more different things right?

It’s the same thing.
“Life is a series of moments”

You’re shining in moment
that you never know when it will end.

I’m touching down soon.
The lights of Los Angeles are dazzling.
