Ahead of their hiatus, their Filipino fans took over Twitter and SM Mall of Asia with a special 'Thank You Arashi' project. In an effort to showcase their gratitude for the last 21 years of ARASHI, fans set up a hashtag party that saw fans reminiscing over their favourite moments of the band, and even displayed a video message thanking the band on SM MOA's iconic globe.
