Miyavi, whose real name is Takamasa Ishihara, along with his wife Melody and two daughters, Lovelie and Jewelie, feel strongly about doing community service together.

Morning school patrol throughout the week. Girls have been waking up early and helping us. Community service is really really important for children. Respect all the teachers, parents and local community supporters. Melody has been doing it by herself when I’m on the road. Thank you Mel, Good job girls, Team #Ishiharas!” Miyavi wrote in the Instagram caption.

Aside from doing community service, Miyavi and the gang also have a very cool relationship as a family.

On top of being a Japanese rock god, Miyavi is actually an actor and model as well. The 36-year-old superstar made his international debut as an actor in the 2014 film “Unbroken” where he played as Imperial Japanese Army sergeant Mutsuhiro Watanabe.

Angelina Jolie, who directed and produced the 2014 movie, personally attended one of his shows to see if he was right for the role, according to The Guardian.

His acting career did not end there, though. Miyavi is featured in the live-action adaptation of the manga “Bleach” by Tite Kubo. He’s the badass 28th head of the Kuchiki clan and captain of the 6th Division in the Gotei 13, Kuchiki Byakuya.
