In the Japanese Noodle Cart October 2020,  I wrote about his departure from the agency he had been with for 24 years.

Yamashita Tomohisa left Johnny & Associates on October 31, 2020, after spending 24 years with the company, having started when he was 11.

His words to his fans were translated and trended across Twitter so I do not know exactly who to credit for them (here was where I saw it)

Fans were shocked when he was allowed to have a public Twitter account, which had previously been banned by the company. In fact,  all SNS had been prohibited by the company.

He has now established his own website:
And  official YouTube channel:

On his channel,  he asks international fans to be a little patient to wait for the rollout of Club9 for everyone.

Yamashita Tomohisa is known for his roles in many Japanese Dramas including Nobuta Wo Produce, Code Blue, and Buzzer Beat among many others.  Since leaving he has been working on The Man from Toronto.
