â—†from EXILE AKIRA
Today is
9/22.

It has been 11 years since the start of EXILE's Second Chapter.

It is a memorable day for me.
I stood on the stage as EXILE member
for the first time
and started my EXILE life
on that day.

I wore this cap
on the live show at
Budokan where
EXILE's Chapter 2 started.

The costume was new and fancy,
only the cap looked old...
Maybe there were fans
who thought it was strange.
This cap is

actually

from the days
when HIRO was still a member of
the performance group "ZOO".
This cap was hard to find
but I finally got it.
It is POLO STADIUM 1992 CAP which was very rare at that time.

It was also used in ZOO's music video.

HIRO wore this cap
when he first stood on
the stage of Budokan
in 1992.
It is a valuable item
that carries HIRO's emotions.

12 years had passed
since then...
This cap
was passed on to me.

When I first stood on
the stage of Budokan
in 2006,

I also wore the POLO STADIUM 1992 CAP
given by HIRO
and started my EXILE life.

And today, September 22,
the day of 11th anniversary...
I found that
the POLO STADIUM 1992 CAP
is sold again
by POLO Ralph Lauren.

I am now serving as
the ambassador of
Ralph Lauren

and because the same cap is sold
at such timing

I strongly
feel that
history and fate
are all predestined.

"Follow the person you admire
and grow.

Carry on his idea

and find your own path.
At the end of the path,

before you know it,
you will reach something that is the origin.

It is going to be a piece of history
across time and space."

Again,
I felt this way
from this incident.

I will continue
taking pride in
people I met,
road I traveled
and my present self.

I will make new history and build my future with this sense of pride.

The new
POLO STADIUM 1992 CAP
seems to mean
a new age
and
a new start.

I will keep the cap given by HIRO
as a good luck charm.

12 years later,
I received a new cap.
One day,
I will also
pass this cap full of wrinkles
to someone...

I will keep on
working hard and
doing my best!
