If you think Fumiya Sankai was charming, imagine three Sankais. Your hearts might not be ready for it! So, saddle up because Fumiya actually does have two equally charming brothers!
Pinoy Big Brother Otso’s Vlogger from Japan has constantly shown that he has the heart of a Filipino. In fact, he explained in a vlog that he wants to be a bridge between Japan and the Philippines. So, from trying street food to finding out what an arinola is, he never shied away from exploring the local culture. Fumiya’s friendship with Yamyam has also been a great source of laughter. There may be a language barrier, this has never stopped them from having a fun time.
There is no doubt that he can fit in well among Filipinos. However, his roots would always be the Land of the Rising Sun where his family is, including two important men.
Meet his brothers Yuya and Shunya Sankai! Fumiya and Yuya live separately in Tokyo while Shunya resides in their province of Shizuoka. Despite having different lives now, the three of them still get together as often as they can. The best part is that their bonding moments are usually documented for Fumiya’s YouTube Channel FumiShun BASE.
The housemate would sometimes teach his brothers some basic Tagalog phrase like “kamusta ang pakiramdom mo” or “salamat sa masarap na pagkain.” For one video, they challenged themselves to whistle with a mouthful of polvoron. In another, they tried calamansi juice for the first time ever, among other snacks.
Fumiya also introduced them to some Filipina actress by scrolling through Instagram. Shunya thought that he and Anne Curtis looked similar as babies. Although, Fumiya disagreed and claimed Anne was cute while Shunya looked more like a frog. They also saw photos of Liza Soberano, Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Barretto, but the three brothers admitted that the most beautiful for them was Nadine Lustre!
