Ohno Satoshi, born on November 26, 1980 in Mitaka, Tokyo, Japan, is a Japanese idol, singer, actor, artist, radio host and member of the popular boy band Arashi.
Ohno began his career in the entertainment industry when he joined the Japanese talent agency Johnny & Associates in 1994 at the age of 13. Ohno started an acting career in 1997 when he was cast to be part of the stage play Kyo to Kyo. In 2008, almost nine years after his debut as a singer with Arashi in 1999, Ohno became the first and the only artist from Johnny's to hold and open his own art exhibit titled "Freestyle" and received his first starring role in a Japanese television drama, for which he earned a handful of Best Actor awards.
Ohno is the youngest child in his family. He has one older sister. During middle school, his mother sent in his application to Johnny & Associates without his knowledge. An invitation to audition was sent back to Ohno, and he subsequently became a trainee in October 1994. In order to focus on the stage play Kyo to Kyo, which ran from 1997 to 1998 during his trainee days, he withdrew from high school and moved to Kyoto.
Before his music debut with Arashi, Ohno wanted to resign from Johnny & Associates. However, then-president Johnny Kitagawa asked him to help out with a song recording and to pack up for a trip to Hawaii, which turned out to be the place where the press conference announcing the formation of Arashi was held. With Ohno at the age of 18 at the time, Arashi was officially formed on September 15, 1999 and made their CD debut on November 3, 1999. Since much of his trainee days was spent in Kyoto, he was the least known member during Arashi's early days. Ohno is the lead vocalist of Arashi. He also is the only member in the group that has released his own solo single for his previous drama soundtrack Uta no Onii-san title Kumorinochi, Kaisei by Yano Kenta starring Satoshi Ohno.
