[Trans] Kame Camera - Vol.6 To create  
-1582 and his mysterious composer.
-Kame likes cooking and he's probably better than all of us fans.
-The ideas and the preparations behind Lost My Way performance.
-Kame's "low self-confidence" side comes back here too.

What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

Vol. 6 つくる – To create

「I want to be a person that can create, not thinking that “something isn’t enough” but inventing by himself what doesn’t exist yet」


This is the belt of a certain brand I ordered several years ago, because was used by adults around me and I longed for it. I chose myself the leather and the color of the stones and waited for months. It’s a one-in-the-world handmade. I like anything that’s handmade, because it has power.

I really like cooking. Not only I’m in the kitchen every day, but even after I’ve had a live at a Dome I cook. Even if just moments before I was stretching around all my nerves and bathing into huge shouts of joy acting cool, some hours after I’m chopping onions all alone. This gap is amusing (laughs). While I’m concentrating and cooking, I naturally become completely blank inside and relax: this is also good.

I think I like “to create” by nature. Of course work is the same. Obviously I took part at the direction of the lives [many times], but even the songs I wrote the lyrics for by myself aren’t few. Actually, “1582” was written by me too, but I didn’t make it public in advance. Probably if you knew it before, you would read deep into it and change perspective. I don’t want to say it because I want you to enjoy that world purely, as the piece of work that it is.

Every time I create something, I give great importance to the inspiration and feelings of that moment. I don’t expressly do preparations or stock ideas before.

About the vampire I put on during last year tour’s solo corner, at home the night before the meeting I began the vampire movies my big brother was by pure chance watching. That image remained in my memory, and from my “I want to become a vampire…” the discussion grew bigger. ‘Generally, a mood like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” is fine, but I want to also add an erotic element. Then, since the plan is to sing just one love song, let’s put a scene where I have my blood sucked by Dracula at the end of the song. But more than having a woman as co-star, maybe being caught by the Johnny’s Jr would be amusing…’, etc. With this feeling, starting from a keyword, the visual image and the story were tied in a row. Even a small performance in reality inside of me is a story complete till the details. Talking about this, for that performance I really gave my best for even the stage tools! There aren’t the “fangs of a vampire” which follow the image, I personally called by phone my usual dentist and I had them created custom-made to fit the form of my teeth. I described my ideal, had many trial products and in the end we created very very thin and cool fangs. Including this kind of work, I like “to create”.

I do my best in creating because I want to have confidence in myself.

About making things, another thing I keep dear is not to imitate others, to show a new me. Even the fact that my solo corner year by year has taken a theatrical direction is because I am in this group called KAT-TUN. There aren’t members that do the same things other people do, and I can do enough plain cool singing and dancing inside of KAT-TUN.

Suddenly I have realized it: for me, even when I make something, there is no sensation of “there’s not enough”. Cooking a delicious plate using the ingredients you have now is always cooking. If there isn’t the dry basil I usually use, I use fresh basil. If the taste is flat, I supply adding consommé.

Live are the same. Because I create them ad lib, utilizing at their maximum level my present own gleam and ability, and the strength of the members who are there with me and of the staff, every time I create something with a different taste. It doesn’t matter how much is delicious, you can’t create the same thing two times, but ––– that’s good.

In creating something with all my might, maybe there’s the fact that I don’t have confidence in the mere me. I’ve got the feeling I’m not communicating if I just sing and dance with that kind of me, so maybe I end up giving all of me (laughs). But if my power of creating is polished by this, then it’s fine.

From now on, I want to hold dear my creative power and enjoy what I create. On times of instability, “things that don’t exist” and “things I don’t have in hand” will probably increase. But I want to be a person that can create, not thinking that “something isn’t enough” but inventing by himself the necessary things.

Kame’s fixed point of observation

It's a photo-shoot done while cooking. He completed 2 pasta dishes, one with basil and mushrooms and the other with cod roe, improvising yet skillfully. After that he said "wait a minute" and with the remaining ingredients he finally prepared also other 2 dishes (butter scallop and baked cabbage). Omitting the flattering compliments, it was considerably delicious! "I've never learned to cook, I naturally learned it looking at my mother and remembering the taste I try at the restaurants. I like good stuff, so even the side dishes I buy I surely work them a bit". It seems that a keen-edged sensitivity can be born from every day’s meals too.

By Maquia

I’ve got the sensation that Kame is well aware of how much fujoshi fans can become insane read into songs, and see even what he doesn’t mean. I like his way of thinking and I respect his choice of not saying he wrote the song beforehand. But I love him anyway for having written 1582, because I've always thought it's the song with the best lyrics and story behind I've ever heard. :)
I'd have found Kame/woman even hotter. Maybe it's just me.
And I really appreciate his last paragraph :)

Re: [Trans] Kame Camera - Vol.6 To create
Following the first post, rearrange SPOT and you have OTPs. :-D Kame/food!

I'd rather call out PORN to start off a reply... and sometimes, it's actually appropriate.

Seriously, thanks for sharing this article!

Thanks a lot Isi for sharing your translations.
He really have a very creative mind when it comes to his crafts especially writing his songs and his performances.
I hope he will have a new idea for his solo in their concert this year if it will push through.

thank you for sharing this, I've already heard about kame being a good cook. Uchi saying if kame was a girl, he would really like her as his girlfriend,main reason? Kame cooks delicious food!

and finally, Im glad he finally admitted he wrote 1582 and Im pretty sure he wrote many other KT's songs there...

and yes, I love his solo perf. Being biased aside, I think his solos are the most entertaining. XD

I don't think I've remembered to say this before, but thank you very much for the Maquia translations. Kame really does reveal the most interesting things about himself here; I look forward to the new issues every time wondering what we'll find out next! :-)
