I had saved a few newer (new-ish?) pictures, but I lost them with my old computer. They exist somewhere online, but I don't think he wants to be seen without his sunglasses..?

Here, have a super happy picture of Toshl from Visual Japan Summit instead  ;)
(at least I think it's from VJS)

I think there were still pictures of him without glasses from around 2007-2009 or so, while he was still with HOH.
Sometimes I wonder if something happened to his eyes that he wants to hide? He wrote that he's been beat up by them multiple times, so it wouldn't be surprising at least.

If anyone came across some non-sunglass pictures, I'm looking forward to those! I honestly don't like it when people's eyes are hidden behind sunglasses... >_<

I can't help but think he may have some kind of little anxiety issue since the HOH debacle that he makes him constantly wear them now. Just a thought-I dunno.

I think I also remember him saying in an interview that he admires another Japanese artist who always wears (or wore?) sunglasses... but I'm not sure, and I honestly don't know if I understood it correctly.

In his biography Toshi said that Masaya told him to wear sunglasses when he is with X. Also he wrote, that he want to cover his scars.

Ah, and also in the "ToshI Cafe" show you can see light fells behind the glasses. You can see, that they are not totally black. The glasses looks more like my sunglasses with dioptres(? is this word correct?).

But still I want to see his real eyes, free of the hole HOH shit. Want to see his happy face completely  ;D ;D  >:( >:(

Yes it might be, because he still somehow feels the need to hide himself... I hope we can see him with a happy grin on his face and without the glasses one day. :D

Yeah, I looked through my ToshI folder & what little I have of his glasses off, are from X days & some from when he was with HoH. All of his recent stuff is all glasses, all the time.

I wanna see a glasses-less ToshI someday too!

It's not without glasses, but finally a photo where you can see at least one eye!

matsumoto, have a look at this.  I don't know whether to smile or cry.  I can see why he wears the glasses, though.  This does not look like the Toshi of old for sure.  This photo is around 2 years old, I believe.

Here's another, same source which is some sort of blog, I guess.  Mostly pix of Yoshiki on there.  Toshi is smiling!  :)

So now I ran into a bunch more.   ???

This one from a Japanese singer's twitter.  Her handle, there is @yokosinger.






I can find more if you all want them.

Actually this photo is from the HoH era. Early 2000s.

OK, the date on it must be the date it was posted, not when it was taken.  Thanks!

Part of me thinks that he may have suffered some sort of facial injury while he was with HoH and he wants to hide any scars he may have.
On the other hand, it may just be a fashion choice and he likes the look. The only one who has the answer is Toshi himself.

I believe I read that he performed with cuts or scars or possibly some bruises on his face when they did The Last Live concert.  So I looked closely and it seemed I could see marks on his face, especially around his eyes. Small ones like cuts.  IDK.  First I need to find where I read that and see what it says and go from there.

This last photo is gold, but the thread is hunting photos from recent times without glasses. Like, post 2010, nobody ever saw Toshi without sunglasses. I could only find that one photo where the stage lighting makes his sunglasses a little more transparent and you can see one eye. :) I'm not sure he has scars. I mean, physical. He may well be just hiding behind his sunglasses, sort of like a stage persona, like a mask. It's ToshI, the singer of X Japan, and not Deyama Toshimitsu. That's my theory.

But this last photo, wow. He looks so good - and sooo Japanese to the core :D He looks really manly <3

Its from 2005.

I think the photo Teemeah posted is the closest yet to "a relatively new pic that shows Toshi without glasses" ^^°

I know, I know.  I tried all night long on every kind of search engine and photo hosting site I could remember which was a lot.  There is only one other I can think of but doubt there are X photos on there.  If there are photos that are recent without glasses, they must be in magazines or books.  There aren't even any without glasses on Getty Images.  :(

Ooooh, yeah, those pics are old. I remember seeing them back in 2006-ish and being really shocked. They were some of the first pics of Toshi post-disbandment to emerge on the internet and people were wondering if it was really him. It's weird how people can change.

As for his sunglass-obsession, I don't think he has anything weird going on with his eyes. He's probably not into botox and needs an easy way to hide his crow's feet and transition from normal guy into superstar superawesome superToshi.

I have looked everywhere.  There are no other photos of Toshi without sunglasses except a few that are very small and they're all as old as these as well.   Maybe he does just like wearing them? A lot of performers do so maybe he is just doing the same thing, used to it and will continue because he likes it or is too used to wearing them.  It would drive me nuts to wear dark glasses all the time but I guess you get used to it.

Probably that. Also, sunglasses are a great way to make you look more put together without makeup. Yoshiki only ever takes his own sunglasses off when on stage, in full make up. I bet he showers with them on as well.

Hahaha, that would be funny to shower with sunglasses on! Speaking of makeup, Toshi's eyes were killer in that makeup when they all had their hair 3 feet high.  lol.  Seriously, I think looking at him with eyes made up like that for so long, it's sorta a shock to me to see him without it.  (I guess I prefer some of the older songs, huh!) Maybe it even makes him look ill or something to that effect because they don't stand out like they did with the makeup.  I'll just have to get used to it, I guess.  Naw, I will always love the look of his eyes with all that makeup.  Cool dude!  8)
