HYDERoom Staff Diary – 03.18.18


VAMPS fan club event usually known as “VAMPADDICT -WINTER-” each year, but this year, for the first time, it is held as a HYDE solo fan club event in Naeba!

Entitled, “HYDERoom presents SNOW MONSTER HOTEL 2018!”

What’s that! As HYDE wrote the blog about the result of various problems, he thought about trying the theme of a horror hotel! So we steadily prepared for HYDE’s idea.

Arriving at Naeba a little early, [HYDE] immediately left for the slopes~!

During a break, [he] decides on what to eat at the food court..




The fans wouldn’t expect him to come to a common place such as a food court,
And no one recognized him (*LOL*)

Eventually, he lost to the temptation of miso ramen.

And rehearsals for the performance were planned around the evening at the venue, so YUKI and ASH were called by saying, “Okay in the room” and they started practicing in the room [to be used] for the waiting room.

This time YUKI played the guitar and ASH participated in the chorus, and HYDE sang as the trio formed together.

They were practicing as three people with perfect, raw sounds with no microphone.




After that, we all headed for dinner!

Speaking of Niigata sake!

While delightfully enjoying sake,

TERU of GLAY joined us!!!!

How luxurious of a feast it is

[There was] so much excitement that TERU [and HYDE] drew portraits of each other with an app!



“In the event we have a picture-drawing corner…”

TERU: “Oh, it’s fun! I want to go too!”

So, it was a rushed decision for TERU to join the event!!! (*LOL*)

The next morning, everyone gathered and headed for the slopes!




Well, here’s a problem!
Who is in this photo?

From the left:
DJ レフティ (Lefy – aka “@LeftyMonsterP” on Twitter), ASH, HYDE, TERU, Yutaka Kyan, YUKI, Pele Kusuda (friendship appearance)

Was ~

Or perhaps I should say, they could just not stay, playing

[They had to] finish the rehersal, change clothes, and the event starts!

But then an emergency situation hit!

I was asked by Mr. Kuro-chan, who had a beard as a prop, but the adhesion was weak, so an announcement was made

[The beard] is ruined, so it must be removed…

“Ok, I’ll draw it~” said HYDE who drew the beard.



As one would expect HYDE,

[Used] permanent marker! (*LOL*)

That’s how the event started!

[The event] started like the horror movie “The Shining.”




This is the image of the members, but it’s actually an altered image,

Actually, various parts [of the photo] are altered and collaged together.

Kuro-chan’s swept back hair is taken from DiCaprio’s head (*LOL*)


The performers are set as characters that are employees of the SNOW MONSTER HOTEL.

Manager: Kuro-chan
Bellboy: YUKI
Maid: Yutaka Kyan
Owner: HYDE

Everyone’s [role] is well suited!




By the way, special surpise guest TERU also appears!!




I thought he was joking at the table when they were drinking,
I did not think he’d truly come out….!!

TERU is a “guest” who came to stay at the hotel,

It’s supposed to be hospitable, but he became involved in a punishment game for some reason…. (*LOL*)

In the drawing event, YUKI demonstrated a wonderful talent.

For the punishment game, YUKI impersonated Chumimi Blouson* (comedic actress)….




with B, TERU, and HYDE, is it not risky!?

TERU participated in two games – “Picture drawing word game*” (*word game in which the players must give a word starting with the last syllable of the word given by the previous player) and “Musician rating check!”

After the evented ended, they toasted while watching the fireworks from atop the slopes ♪




Day 1 of the Naeba event is not finished yet!

At the night’s DJ event, everyone at SNOW MONSTER HOTEL is drunk and excitment runs through an exciting place!!

TERU and Pele Kusuda who came as guests also came together to the event!




The party continued until late even after the DJ event ended….

Well, our hotel employees had been drinking until late,
Said “I’m hungover” while heading down the slopes in the morning.




Moreover, they all wore matching SNOW MONSTERS parkas!!

Everyone is well-suited

T-shirts and parkas of the event
“If everyone at the hotel is wearing them, then I can identify the SNOW MONSTERS team”
HYDE thought as he designed the items.

HYDE is also watching the slopes.

TERU who appeared on the first day was scheduled to return the second day too!

The SNOW MONSTERS team was united on the second day,
Before the event, they formed a circle of hands (*LOL*)





At the rating corner on the first day, everyone who is supposed to be a leading musician made a lot of mistakes,

On the second day, the results were also disasterous with challenges such as sake tasting and bass sound listening….

By the way, on the second day, HYDE held onto the third-class musician spot,
On the first day, he got the result of “fake musician.” (*LOL*)




After much laughter in the game, everyone is ready for a live!

This time,
Since it’s winter, the song “winterfall”
[Then] HYDE sang for the first time live “KISS OF DEATH”
“BLESS” he wanted to sing while watching the Pyeonchang Olympics.
The three songs were delivered.




The event of three hours with laughter and tears for two days was successfully completed.

Then, on the second day, the DJ event burst into
GLAY’s “Yuuwaku” and L’Arc’s “HONEY” as people sang enthusiastically!!




The two-day DJ event also ended successfully,
The next morning, HYDE watched the finale of this year’s Naeba event as well!

Although, it rained the next morning unfornately,
Many people still gathered on the slopes.

This year’s slopes event was had a limited time and place, so if you were at the right place at the right time, you would be able to encounter HYDE, 100%!

But, your cooperation is also necessary!

Although, the place was designated in order for everything to be carried out safely for HYDE (and others), so thanks to everyone for following the rules and awaiting for HYDE’s handshake.




We also received tremendous cooperation from the staff at Naeba Ski Resport.
Thank you very much!

With this, SNOW MONSTER HOTEL 2018 has successfully ended!

Thank you very much to everyone who stayed at our hotel!

Every year, we like to spend the end of winter with you,
We’ll do our best to be able to operate again next year.

We look forward to seeing you come again!
