SMAP’s Kusanagi lives on plants for four days

Eating nothing but plants before SMAP’s Tokyo Dome concerts and having an alpaca as a co-star has been Tsuyoshi Kusanagi’s (36) latest challenge in his upcoming TV special, it was revealed yesterday, reports Oricon.

The TV Asahi three hour special has been called: “草なぎ剛の1人でゴールデン3時間やっちゃいます!〜草だけで過ごす4日間。もし地球上に食べ物が無くなったらあなたは草だけで生きられますか?雑草の様に生きようSP〜 (Tsuyoshi Kusanagi’s one-man 3hr golden time special!  ~Living on plants for 4 days.  If food vanished from the face of the earth, would you be able to live on plants?  Life as a weed special~)”.

Kusanagi had spent four days on a garden rooftop of an apartment building with his co-star, 6-month-old alpaca Momo-chan.  During the challenge, Kusanagi had visits from vegetarian celebrities giving him advice about what plants to eat, had vegetarian cooking sessions, and enjoyed a vegetarian BBQ.

Kusanagi's co-star: Momo-chan the alpaca

The popstar had said his latest adventure had become a completely new kind of variety show.

“I’ve done a lot of different variety shows in the past but this one had a totally different feeling about it,” he said.

TV producers had chosen Kusanagi for the show because the Japanese character in his name, “草” which means grass or plant, went well with the show’s theme.

Will Kusanagi be able to get through SMAP’s Tokyo concerts having only eaten plants for the four days prior to the first performance?  Stay tuned…the show will go on air in Japan on October 5 on TV Asahi from 7pm.


Lol, his co-star’s name is Momo.

…that’s not me, because I’m not an alpaca, even though I find them really adorable.

That and I’m a faithful omnivore in my 20s.

Momo (the human one) xoxo
