Ohno claimed his motivation to join Johnny & Associates is his mother, who convinced him to send his resume by saying "It's not like they will want you to join anyway." Later during the audition, Ohno recalled that he did not follow the dance instructor because he couldn't see him from the back of the room, and he waved to his mother out of the window. The president, Johnny Kitagawa caught and scolded Ohno, telling him "YOU! what are you doing? Go to the front of the room and dance." Ohno then danced considerably well, to the president's pleasant surprise. Johnny Kitagawa himself said to Ohno "You have good rhythm!" This incident shows the very personality of Ohno, who often surprises people around him with his random musings and artistic talents.When he called Johnny Kitagawa to tell him that he was going to quit, Mr. Johnny asked him if he has a passport and took him to Hawaii, which lead to his debut as Arashi(a japaneses boy band). To this day he is trying to "run away" from Johnny's.
Ohno is often referred to as the leader of Arashi by the fans and fellow band members, despite his distaste of the role. He reluctantly won against fellow member Sho Sakurai the role of a leader in a game of rock-paper-scissors and has been saying how Sho Sakurai is more fit to be leader since. Recently he has requested the other members to call him Captain, because there are already so many 'Leader's in the Jpop industry.
Despite his identity as the leader of the band, the entire group agrees that Ohno does not show much leadership qualities. Ohno is seen to be the quiet daydreamer of the group and is often seen with a blank look on his face. He rarely has much to say during talk shows and interviews, usually only voicing out to say strange, random, irrelevant things. Ohno is famously known to obliviously antagonize temperamental SMAP member Masahiro Nakai, his senior, in the latter's music show Utaban by innocently throwing frank, funny comments and dropping out Japanese honorifics. Masahiro Nakai admitted that he dreaded the times when Ohno opens his mouth, but the two maintain a good relationship.
Ohno has a highly artistic nature. He sings the strong, lead vocals in Arashi's songs, having honed his singing and dancing skills on live stage since a tender age. He is considered the best singer and dancer in Arashi, and also one of the best in the whole JE. Many underclassmen (Johnny's Jr.) go to him for advice on acting in stageplays, in which he is already a veteran, even at his group's debut. He is known to have one of the best voices in Johnny's Entertainment. Ohno is also arguably the best dancer in Arashi and one of the bests in Johnny & Associates. He choreographs his solo dances as well as Arashi's dances in the 2006 Summer concert. He also has a passion for drawing and clay sculpting, and had recently showed interest in wood carving and house building. In 2008, he became the first artist in Johnny's who held an art exhibit entitled "Freestyle". The exhibit featured his works accumulated in a span of 10 years, displaying all of his artworks and drawings, including his 100 clay figures. "Freestyle" was held at Omotesandou Hills from February 21 - 29, 2008.
Ohno is also one half of Ohmiya SK, a comedy skit duo consisting of himself and bandmate Kazunari Ninomiya, with whom Ohno is closest to in Arashi. The duo originally appeared in a 2002 concert as a side performance, performing during costume changes. However, the two decided against Johnny & Associates and reappeared in other concerts, claiming that it is ridiculous to spend so much on their costumes and only using them once. Ohmiya SK received great fan support, convincing Johnny & Associates to allow them to continue.
Ohno has become a big fan of sea fishing since the year of 2008. It has been told that he always carries books and magazines on fishing with him and enjoys watching fishing TV shows. close
