Sakurai Sho was born to a family of scholars where everyone is raised with high expectations. His father graduated from Tokyo University and currently holds a respectable position in the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, his mother is a college professor and a company heiress, inherited the company from her father.
Born as his grandfather’s first grandson, Sho was pampered like a spoiled child. He thought of his mom as his 'very first enemy', always yelled to and argued with her even because of small things. And his dad often brought him to the parks on weekends but they didn’t really talk to each other, even now.
“I went to a hotpot restaurant with my dad once, just the two of us. We didn’t know what to talk about so we ended up talking about the hotpot ingredients.” (from Shiyagare 2011/03/26)
