30th June

Today、 30th June
Is an important day
It’s when we became the 「Hello! Project Kids」。



From about 30 thousand people
All 15 people who remained in the final judging round passed。

I was in my 3rd year of primary school at the time
My height was a smidgen greater
Than the usual standards~(lol)

Who would have thought that I would now be in this world、
I couldn’t have imagined it 13 years ago。
It’s like a story from out of a dream。

I liked singing and dancing at the time、
But more than 「Wanting to be an idol!」
My feelings leaned even stronger towards
「I want to meet Goto Maki-san!」
「I want to meet Morning Musume。!」。

At the time
I collected lots of trading cards♡ lol


Even now, I’m storing them carefully (^.^)!


This case is exclusively for Goto Maki-san! lol

At the time、 if I hadn’t encountered
The presence of Morning Musume。
I wouldn’t be who I am now、
And I wouldn’t have met those precious members either。

It’s my pride
To have been part of the Hello! Project Kids。

In these 13 years、
There were lots of hard and sad incidents
But beyond those
There were lots of happy and joyful incidents。

I think that life holds a lot more tough incidents
Beyond this。
But with the pride I hold from the life I’ve lived so far、
Whatever happens
I’d like to be positive and do my best。

We beg for your kindness from now on too ♡

I went to see
「TRIANGLE β (Beta) version」ー♡

I watched the α (alpha) version the other day、
Which made me go since
I had to see the β (beta) version!! (*^^*) lol

The β (beta) version was really fun too!
I was able to watch it from a different perspective、
I watched it while comparing it
To the α (alpha) version in my mind
Which made it even more funー!!

But it was definitely heartbreaking (´・_・`)♡
Since there might be spoilers
I won’t give any details… lol


Kuduu plays the role of Asada ♡
The contents of the β (beta) version
Make it easier to understand Asada’s thoughts
Kuduu’s Asada was cool ♩


And、 and
Kiri who was acted by Riho-chan
Was really cool and stylish!!
Keep your eyes on Kiri’s sword fight in the α (alpha) version ♡


Maa-san noticed my presence
Even while she was on-stage ♡ You’d expect no less! lol
The tolerance of the father’s role played by Maa-san
Was cool!!

I met ℃-ute’s Maimi and Nacky too ♡


It made me happy to meet the scriptwriter Shioda Taizo
After a while~(*^^*)

This time I went to
「Tokyo Sky Tree」!!

A collaboration with the long-cherished Sky Tree ♡

I tried going to the viewing platform、、♡



You can look down through the glass floor~!!(lol)


I was more excited than the small children (lol)
It was fun, if slightly scary ♩

I’d like to hang out at the Sky Tree again ♡

I went to
ANGERME’s Budokan performance~!!



Everyone was shining brilliantly
It lifted my spirits ♡
Watching the concert
Made me want to dance together with them~♩ lol

Definitely gets the crowd excited~♡ lol

And I’m happy
That I got to hear my favourite
「Mini-skirt postwoman」 tooー♡


It kind of made me feel nostalgic、
Since our 3rd March Budokan!

To all of ANGERME
Thank you for the lovely time ♡
Good job (*^^*)

Good evening!
How did you spend Golden Week?
Did you spend it going on a relaxing trip?
I guess that there were also people who were busy with work?

And everyone、
Thank you very much for your many comments ♡
I read all of them!
The warm comments from all of you、
Made me really happy and encouraged me。
Thank you so much ♡

It’s been 2 months since the 3rd of March。
Even though I thought it would pass in the blink of an eye
It felt unexpectedly longー

For countless days after our hiatus
I didn’t listen to Berryz’ songs、
Didn’t watch videos either
Since it’d make me sad (lol)

Maybe I’ll start back by gradually re-watching the DVDs from ages past ♩

Ah、 I watched this year’s HinaFes
On SkyPerfect *\(^o^)/*
On the stage where they had a 360 degree view of the audience、
Everyone looked to be having fun singing and dancing ♩
It lifted my spirits! H!P is awesome!!


A view that soothed my heart recently。


I took these myselfー♩


I want to go overseasー ♡

Everyone、 it’s been a while!
Are you doing well??

From today、
I’ll resume blogging!
The blog header has also been updated (*^^*)

To those who were waiting for its resumption、
To those who left comments on the blog
Or opened its pages when I was taking a break、
Thank you so very much。

From now on、
I’d like to update about things like
My current condition or things I thought about or things that I felt
I’d be glad if you make sure to check this blog out!

And today、 the 1st of May
I’ll be entering

This is the homepage。
→【 M-line

It would be great
If I could have the opportunity
To interact with all of you again at events!

From now on、
I beg for your kindness ♡

Berryz Kobo。

「Berryz Kobo Last Concert 2015
Berryz Kobo Ikubee~!」

It was a perfect combustion~!!!!!!!


To everyone who came、
And everyone who watched
Through the live viewing
To everyone who’s been cheering us until now、

Thank you so very much ♡

We definitely love performing live
That’s how time seemed to pass♩
I really love that atmosphere ♡♡♡

11 years as Berryz Kobo
About 12 and a half years being active since our audition、
I never would have thought
That we’d continue until now。

I said it at our LIVE performance
But thinking about it again、
I truly have been blessed by those around me。

To everyone who cheered on someone like me、
The members、 all the staff、 my friends、
My family who have been the closest to watch over me…
Because all these precious people were there
I was able to continue until now。

No regrets!!
Though I say that, it’s a lie、、、

Having being given such a joyful life
I think that having regrets is obvious。

But、 thinking positively about those regrets
「It’s great that I became part of Berryz Kobo」
My life after this、
I can confidently say that I’ve got confidence。

It’s great that I met all of you。
The time I spent as Berryz Kobo
Is a lifelong treasure of mine。

Thank you very much
For the truly truly lovely 11 years ♡

I’ll treasure this word beyond this
And walk on my next life…

3rd March。

I ♡ Berryz Kobo


♡ Captain ♡


♡ Momochi ♡


♡ Chinami ♡


♡ Maasan ♡


♡ Miya ♡


♡ Risako ♡


I was able to make it this far
Because they were around。
I spent more time together with them than with my family、
Fun times、 tough times、 sad times
We experienced all of those together。

Some theorised that we had bad blood (lol)
But we’re pretty close
Above all, I believe we’ve got a strong bond of solidarity!!

I’m glad I became a member of Berryz Kobo。
I’m glad that I met everyone。
Thank you♡

I hope that
This day today
Will become a lovely, life-long treasure…

♡ Berryz Kobo Ikube~!♡
