It has been a week since May 18th, when it was revealed that Ryuhei Ueshima had died. Hiroiki Ariyoshi, a “love disciple,” is gradually resuming posting on SNS such as Twitter and Instagram. The first post on Twitter after Mr. Ueshima’s death was on May 15th, the broadcast date of the radio program “SUNDAY NIGHT DREAMER” (JFN) in which he appeared. He posted a weekly announcement saying, “Today’s radio. It’s about to rain.” There was a lot of encouragement from the fans.

<< Without this, the week will not start. 》
<< This is my favorite radio program! 》
“Before this post, a lot of comments from some fans were worried about Mr. Ariyoshi. However, other fans said,” Even worried comments are now a burden to Mr. Ariyoshi. It was pointed out, and the comment was withdrawn, showing the appearance of confusion. Perhaps because of that, there were conspicuous comments that did not directly touch on Mr. Ueshima’s case.

Ariyoshi is one of the most watched entertainers.
“Twitter has 7.7 million followers, and is the third largest Japanese celebrity follower after ZOZO founder Yusaku Maezawa and downtown Hitoshi Matsumoto.
With so many followers, each fan has Ariyoshi, such as those who have only seen Ariyoshi who is appearing in variety shows, those who like Ariyoshi’s talk show, and enthusiastic listeners of “Sandori”. There are various statues. It’s no wonder that some people get too close to each other on SNS.
However, this time, the fans voluntarily pointed out each other and produced the result of trying to provide Mr. Ariyoshi with even a little positive content. “(Same as above)
The kindness of the fans that I don’t dare to touch. Like Mr. Ueshima, Ariyoshi seems to be blessed with good fans.
