“Mentre scrivo questa lettera la brezza dell’oceano mi rinfresca la pelle. Il mio unico rimpianto in vita è di non averti mai detto quello che provo. Vorrei essere a casa, vorrei essere lì a tenerti la mano, vorrei essere lì a dirti quanto ti ho amata e solo te da quando ero piccolo, ma non ci sono. Ora capisco che la morte è facile, è l’amore a essere difficile. Dal mio areo in picchiata vedrò i tuoi occhi, pietre nere incastonate nella pioggia, io sussurrerò il tuo nome, e in morte come in vita, rimarrò per sempre tuo.”
— L’amore che resta.

I'm doing solo activities, but I'm also actively doing things as X JAPAN's leader, so please support us."
"I'm looking forward to being able to see everyone in New York!"
"I'm looking forward to be able to perform on the yearned-for stage at MSG!"
