Jin Akanishi (AKANISHI Jin / 赤西 仁 / あかにし じん) is a Japanese actor, born on Wednesday, July 4, 1984, in Tokyo, Japan.
Former member of the popular Japanese Boyband, KAT-TUN. He represented the "A" (for "Akanishi").
He is close friends with Yamashita Tomohisa and Yuu Shirota.
He writes his own songs for KAT-TUN (Care, Hesitate, Murasaki, Love or Like) and often takes the hardest parts of their songs because of his impressive vocal range.
Some people think his first name is Hitoshi because of the multiple pronunciations of his name's kanji character. The real pronunciation is Jin, based on one of the Confucian virtues (benevolence). His name was once even published in a magazine as Akanishi Hitoshi.
