Segments[edit]

Being Grandchildren for a Day[edit]

Ichi Nichi Mago ni Narimasu (1日孫になります?) in Japanese. Two members would pair up and visit the home of an elderly couple, who would be their "grandparents" for the day. The two would act as their fill in grandchildren and split up to help or spend time with either the grandfather or grandmother do chores, cook lunch or work. Usually after lunch, there would be a "Love-Love Talk" consisting of stories of the grandparents' love stories such as their first kiss, first date, marriage and impressions of each other. By the end of the day, the grandfather would usually present the grandmother a gift after some urging on the grandchildren's part, and the grandchildren themselves would each present a gift to their grandparents before leaving.

Chinese Lessons[edit]

Chūkagai Ryūgaku (中華街留学?) in Japanese. Arashi and one guest would take lessons in Mandarin from a teacher. With a theme, the members and guest study basic Mandarin within a limited time and demonstrate their abilities through a test. The person who did the poorest would have to review the lesson by himself in the end.

Arashi's Castle Town[edit]

Arashi no Jōkamachi (嵐の城下町?) in Japanese. Two members would visit different castles of Japan.

Arashi's Assault: Children's Dinner[edit]

Arashi no Totsugeki Kodomo no Ban Gohan (嵐の突撃こどもの晩ゴハン?) in Japanese. While the parents go out on a date, two members would engage in a cooking battle against each other and have the children judge whose dish tasted better. At the parents' request, the theme of the dinner would usually be something the children dislikes eating such as cooked bell peppers or eggplants. The loser of the battle would have to clean up the kitchen by himself and, when the parents return, the members would present them a menu of what their children had for dinner with a short message from each member below the photo of their respective dish.

Arashi's Edo Life Exploration[edit]

Arashi no O-Edo Hakkenden (嵐のお江戸発見伝?) in Japanese. A pair of Arashi members and another pair of guests would take a map of Edo and compete against each other to find different locations of Edo in modern day Tokyo.

Specials[edit]

Mago Mago Boating Club[edit]

A special that followed the group's three-month progress of learning rowing without any prior experience in order to fulfill the wish of a "grandfather" from one of their Being Grandchildren for a Day segments and training for an official rowing competition.
