GACKT “If you don’t provide children an environment where they can really get excited, they won’t have dreams” / Interview


■New Single『ARROW』 Interview (3/3)

≪My Season≫
GACKT introduces what he’s most interested or into recently!

Phuket’s wakeboarding
Because I’ll get tanned I’ve never done marine sports before this but, since they’ve finally started making wear that covers all your skin, I thought of using that to do marine sports. In the first place, because I go snowboarding in winter, this is something to do in the summer instead of that. I have business partners in Phuket, and since they go wakeboarding, I started to as well. For example, there was a training facility in Dubai called Wakeboard Park that had about 150 locations, and it was thriving to the point that there was 5 in one street but, with the current laws in place in Japan it is extremely difficult to set up such facilities. It’s a shame but even Japan’s top sportsmen are at the level of not being able to get through qualifiers of international competitions. Be it sports, music, or business, if you don’t provide children an environment where they can really get excited, they won’t have dreams. Of course, for example even if you do your best, it’s only natural that you won’t necessarily get first place because its a comepetetive world. However, because those who do it seriously will definitely delve into their next field seriously as well, the next time they may just become number one. In a competitive world, not feeling the competition is a problem in itself. It’s the same thing as refusing to grow up.
