Why Hiroshi Abe’s Official Site is Called “The 5G Demo”


There is an actor named Hiroshi Abe.

He used to not have an official website.

One day, more than 20 years ago, a fan created a website.

Surprise. Hiroshi and his agency recognized the fan’s website as the official website.

Since then, Hiroshi Abe became very famous, but the site continues to be used almost exactly as it was designed then.

The site loads so fast that it’s often referred to on the Japanese internet as “the site where you can experience 5G”.
