Taito is very talented individual, as is his family; his grandfather and father (Hashimoto Jin) are both musicians, while his father is also a Muay Thai athlete.  Furthermore his younger brother is a professional dancer with a B-Boy crew (and the other still in high school). So its no surprise that Taito can sing and dance. During his career with D-BOYS, Taito has demonstrated several types of dance styles from breakdancing, capoeira, urban, and was challenged to tap dance (w Takahashi Ryuki).  He can also perform Shintaisho (Tumbling) and is well versed in English conversation due to having many foreigner friends.
