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

Vol. 28 モチベーション Motivation

「A delicious meal, a cool car: exactly because they are a reward to the “me who gave his best” they become mental nourishment.」


Nowadays I am travelling overseas a lot. This pictured was taken in America, when I went there in March for work. This aerial feeling, this splendid scenery…. And of course there are also delicious meals. I think, “I will give my best to be able to come here once again!” It was the best! (laughs)

Especially when busy days come one after the other and it looks like I am about to get out of breath, I wear my favourite clothes, I eat what my body desires… I naturally increase actions that improve my motivation. Above all, I am probably fussy about what “enters into my sight”. I am a person who is easily influenced by sight and visual stuff. From the design of cosmetic bottles to the display of my house’s shelves, when I see a view I think, “ah, so beautiful”, my tension rises and I am brought back to the right mood. On the contrary, if my house or the car is dirty, I end up being disappointed by myself, “I am such a no-good!” Especially when I am cornered, I thoroughly clean everything. I objectively look at even my own house as if it was someone else’s and make even the places I often use water shine and sparkle. Same goes for polishing “myself”. After house cleanings, I take a shower, I look at myself properly dressed reflected in the mirror and I enter the ‘switch on!’ status.

But these are actions I do only when I’m working. When I am on holiday, I don’t want to turn my switch on so on the contrary I don’t clean; there are also times I don’t take showers. In other words, I think that ‘work’ itself is the root of my motivation. For example, a “warm meal” increases motivation too, but I can’t really eat it during filming. I feel grateful for the warm meal I eat after a hard filming, and I can think “I will give my best again in my work in order to eat this”. It’s the same for a marvelous house or car. I think they become my “spiritual nourishment” as rewards for works I gave my best in because they’re something I gained with my own ability.

If I dig more in depth to the roots and reflect upon what I work for, as expected, it’s “people”. My family and people near me, fans who support me, staff who help me…. I guess the very feelings of precious people requesting Kamenashi Kazuya are the strongest motivation. Standing on a vast stage, going to Paris for enjoyment, working on my body, acting cool, if I think of doing all of this just for myself, I’m incredibly lazy (laughs), but if I think this is for someone who is demanding me, the engine activates. My body works most when I do something for someone, and I can also feel happiness. More than saying that I am considerate, the reason must be my weakness: my tendency to be sluggish in my private time (laughs). I think that even this is something typical of me.

Love is a sense of security more than a stimulus. It’s different from motivation.

On the other hand, “romantic love” won’t be motivation for work. Of course it becomes energy as “I’ll give my best for the people I love”. But what I demand from my lover is to become my basis, my “balm”. Similar to my family, a person who I can be in total off-mode with when I meet her. During periods when my tension must always be high at work, there are moments when it’s troublesome for me to even meet my family or lover. Well, in my case, because I end up losing my intense tension (laughs).

In this job, the sense of danger is important, and during my private time I need inputs more than normal people to compensate for the continuous and constant outputting of myself [at work]. Inputting new stimuli and encounters increases my tension and motivation. For this reason, even me who loves staying at home, recently I sometimes consciously go out. I encounter charming people in new places. Even if it isn’t romantic love, there are also times when talking with an incredible woman "updates" me. I think that this sort of “heart stimulus” is acceptable (laughs). Of course, there’s a "base" where I can be at ease. I think that exactly because I have both the sense of security and the stimuli I can always do a better job.

Kame’s fixed point of observation
Kamenashi-kun said, “Recently I began to think that it’s necessary for me to take care of myself more.” “The fact that Fukuyama (Masaharu)-san is stoically working on his body isn’t narcissism, but it’s the proof that he’s taking care of himself. For this reason, I drink any beverage from wine glasses even when alone, or I use candles even when alone (laughs). It’s a bit extreme, but I began to think that if I decide to be active at the front in whatever world, then I must egoistically create the best situation for myself. At the end, this is the standard for any job though.”

Thanks for translating. As always reading his thoughts is so interesting. lol at him lighting candles and taking care of himself in his alone times. </p>

I love when he talks about just talking to an impressive woman XD. again he talks about being able to switch off and be himself with his girl, should he have one. I just hope he has one to share with. he talks about needing stimulus after giving so much. I hope someone can give to him what he seems to be in need of: true companionship.

Thank you for translation. What a beautiful person. If you think about it a lot, you notice he is a brilliant spokesperson - if he can get his thoughts out so eloquently. (maybe a great writer too if he is the one writing this instead of speaking it to an editor.). Love these.
your friendly neighborhood Isi: Kame piecesiside89 on June 8th, 2013 12:37 pm (UTC)
It seems he talks to a journalist/interviewer who later writes down the essay, but Kame checks out and approves it before printing. So he must have some decisional power, like changing some lines or word choices or similar :)
He indeed is a brilliant spokesperson!! ^^
You're welcome! ^^

Thanks for translating!

I can totally relate to everything he writes about cleaning and about becoming demotivated just by seeing disorder. I also keep everything manically clean during the weekdays, just so that I can relax and slouch off during the weekend! Maybe it is a kind of obsession? <_< However, I always wonder how Kame manages that, as he probably doesn't have a fixed schedule at all...

Thank you,iside89, for your kind effort in giving us the opportunity to take a peep into Kame's mind.
It is beautiful to express emotions and even more beautiful to feel it.

I kinda agreed what kame was trying to say here. Motivation can be anything that lift up the energy to do your best in your work and these motivation tends to be on material wants. My twice a year holiday trips always been my motivation to work, I can buy my favourite stuff I want etc etc however, love can be a motivation to some people, isn't it?

Security is something more towards feelings. feelings you have with certain people, be it from family or lovers or friends. Every one gain such feelings from different aspect even from the money/fame they earned.

Motivation, security or stimulus are very subjective to individuals. Human is not a simple creature afterall~

Thanks for the translation... always love to read kame camera! very appreciate it and please carry on~
