Speaking of YOSHIKI, he’s world widely known as member of the band X JAPAN, who have achieved showcases at world’s top 3 holy venues – Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall, and Wembley Arena. Lately, he was much-talked-about as the first Japanese man to be featured on the cover of VOGUE magazine. PIKOTARO was requested by this international star to collaborate “PPAP” and X JAPAN’s “Forever Love” as an ad-lib during the show. Amazingly, it turned out to be one of the most beautiful PPAP ever presented.

PPAP x Forever Love Collaboration:



During the second half of the show, PIKOTARO presented his latest anime, “PIKOTARO’s LULLABY LALA BY” and Japanese festival & dance music fusion track, “Love & Peace ONDO.” Various positive reactions of the anime arouse from the fans, and YOSHIKI also praised PIKOTARO’s talent commenting, “Your idea about the music and anime are both simply amazing!!”

“PIKOTARO’s LULLABY LALA BY”

"Love & Peace ONDO"



* ONDO = dance song

This is PIKOTARO's new idea of "Uhhh-ing" Japanese traditional dance, Bon Dance, and dance music... "Bon-Dance Music.” PIKOTARO also fused Robot Dance, choreographed by worldwide famous animation dancer, Koutei Sennin. His dance team, Time Machine, is known for catching the world’s attention when they won the first Golden Buzzer in the history of Asia’s Got Talent in 2015.

PIKOTARO would like to spread the Japanese traditional culture worldwide through this new fusion of Robot Dance + Obon Dance = "Robon-Dance"

* As you may have noticed, the ‘cat’ headphones PIKOTARO is wearing is Ariana Grande’s model! He admires Ariana so much that he personally purchased during his US visit
