On 8 June 2018, he has been given a stern warning by Johnny's & Associates after some tabloid magazines reported that he and bandmate Koyama Keiichiro have drunk with a minor. The drinking age in Japan is 20 years old. While the girl said she was 20, it was later discovered that she was in fact 19.
