In 2007, he announced his marriage with Seto Asaka. They got married in 2006 but Inocchi waited until tour season to make the announcement cause he wanted to tell his fans, who had supported him along the way, personally and before anyone else, even the media. Members and fans gave their blessing and thanked him for the thoughtful gesture. In March 2010, the couple welcomed their first son.
He is active on TV as an actor in doramas and also as a caster for NHK in Asaichi.
Happy 36th Birthday! お誕生日おめでとう！～
Inocchi, is my favorite Johnny, I know I don’t post about him that often but that’s because his magical personality cannot be represented with just an image or a GIF. I love him because he loves V6 the most. I love him because he loves his fans the most. I love him because he properly married due to love and not because he got her pregnant. I love him because he is a great senpai. And a forever long list of other reasons…
Happy birthday, dear Inocchi… hope to keep fangirling you for many many many years～
