15 = Spaghetti. I have confidence in my Cod roe and squid Spaghetti yo~ Others include snacks, pudding and fern cake
25 = I don’t cook (laugh). It’s true that I did cook when I was 15 years old ne. Because it’s around the age where one would like to try new things probably? (laugh)

25 = “Godfather”, “Back to the Future”, “Goonies” are absolutely films I like. Recent films that I watched and enjoyed include『青春の殺人者』＆『太陽を盗んだ男』The list wont end if I have to continue yo.
Q7 The type of Girl I Like
15 = Kawaii, serious, someone who is interesting to be with. And, someone who always talks to me, who will respond to what I say。
25 = someone who loves cleanliness, and… someone who is gentle、 earnest and can get along with others, Girls who try their best at everything they do are also good.
Q8 Things to say when confessing

25 = Encounters with people. Up until now I’ve had wonderful encounters with people, but because of the dramas and movies, I had many wonderful encounters this year.
Q12 What if there is a Time Machine
15 = travel back to the Edo period, I'd like to see the dual between Miyamoto Musashi and Sasashi Kojiro
25 = I’d like to travel back to the Showa period where music and movies are popular and feel the atmosphere there. Seems like a time where it is possible to film 3 movies at the same time. When I was filming in the studio in Kyoto, I’ve heard a lot about it from the staff-san who experienced that era. I felt regretful for not knowing about this era that is full of energy. Lately, I’ve started watching old Japanese films. Yutaka Mizutani-san and ken Ogata san from『青春の殺人者』、and JULIE (Kanazawa Tian Kenji)-san all have such great charisma, they’re all very kakkoii ne.

Q14 Recent troubles

25 = Thank goodness ne, I grew. I’ve successfully passed 170cm (laughs). Right now… I’d really like to take a break for a week. (laughs) Although I love to work, I still want to say can I take a week off (laughs). If I have time I’d really like to go on a vacation. yeah for sure Toma, you have get more rest after this
Q15 My Hero is…?
15 = Tsubasa from “Captain Tsubasa” . I would imitate him for playing soccer and going up the stairs at the same time and stuff like that, and also practice overhead kicks yo (laughs)
25 = SMAP ne- As expected, they have charisma and are STAR-like. They can always manage to stand at the very top, very amazing ne. Earlier when I was in Kyoto Goro Kazuki-kun and I went out to eat together. Goro-kun was also working in Kyoto’s studio at the same time as I. I even said to him “Hold a concert Already!” (laughs)
Q16 Happiest thing right now
15 = Pro Wrestling. Lately, I find myself very interested in it, and would even record it to watch.
25 = As expected its acting ne. The staff-san I met during “Ningen Shikkaku” filming are all “Movie People” who started working a long time ago. Listening to them talk is very interesting and exciting. And caused a feeling of wanting to watch more movies, film more movies. It stirs up a desire for more…

25 = Eh? I don't know (laughs)

25 = pictures with Juniors. There are a lot of them ne. They are indeed very precious photos (laughs). From time to time I’d see them and get absorbed into them when I’m cleaning my room. It’s really nostalgic. For example, (Sakurai) Sho-kun looks really young in them. Saying that, I have many pictures of Sho-kun ne. Sho kun always brings a camera a long to take pictures. There are also lots of Hina (Murakami Shingo) . Then, my most precious things right now are my friends and family.
