I remember I first saw Hikakin beatboxing Super Mario back in 2010. I was pretty amazed at his skills, but now he is an worldwide internet sensation. He also collaborated with famous singers such as Aerosmith, Ariana Grande, and Ne-yo. You can watch his Ariana Grande collab here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbplpcAGSZ8 This 27 year old star has a total of 7,450,000 subscribers.
He is Hikakin's older brother and just like Hikakin, he wears sunglasses in his videos too. He does a bit more singing than Hikakin (no beatboxing) and have releases a few albums. Because he is an acapella singer, it seams that him and his brother use their own voice as instruments. He has 1,883,415 subscribers.http://www.tunecore.co.jp/news/91
Kan & Aki
I must say these two always bring a smile to my face. They are just so adorable doing everyday things that kids do: go to water parks, paint a cardboard house, build sand castles at the beach, etc. It's nothing crazy, they are just broadcasting their lives but somehow have millions of views. Life should be simple like this family. Kanna (9 years old) and Akira(7) have another sister Asahi (2) and a brother, Asahi (0).
Their parents upload videos, and also write a blog which you can read here:
They have 1,339,708 subscribers.
