Miyamoto Karin

Hokkaido ☆

This is Miyamoto Karin from Juice=Juice!!

Today we had a Hello! Project concert in Hokkaido!!

It was winter when we did the last Hello! Project concert here, and the place was a snowscape、、

This time around、、

This is how the scenery looked!!

Somehow, it felt warmer than Tokyo when we went out、 and the moment we arrived at the airport, the air was lovely, it was awesome ( ´▽`)

And here’s Inaba Manaka-chan、 who hails from Hokkaido!!

She’s always very feminine、 and her dancing is really stylish!!

During the bridge for one of S/mileage-san’s songs、 Manaka-chan’s dancing looked so so sharp that I thought she wouldn’t lose out to them in brilliance!!!

Everyone in Hokkaido was really passionate、 and whenever a song started、 they’d raise cheers of encouragement、 and their cheers were great even at other times、、

It really gave us power!!

Today we did a KOREZO! performance!!

For the KOREZO! performances, the meat of it is each group doing their own performances、 but today Juice=Juice were the first out of the gates to perform、 so we were pumped up even before the real thing、 and all of us were working hard, with our hearts even more united than usual!!

It’d be great if even a few more people remember Juice=Juice, since we don’t really get to go to Sapporo o(^o^)o

`・ε・´∩ Right!

Recently、 drying my hands after washing them、、、

It was like I’d applied rose-scented hand cream (´・ω・`)

I’ll do my best so that my grip during handshake events will be great for everyone ( ´▽`)


For Juice=Juice 『Senobi/Date janai yo Uchi no Jinsei ha』

We’ll be having a release commemoration mini-live and handshake event、 at Aria Sapporo o(^o^)oo(^o^)o

Everyone, please drop by ( ´▽`)

For details ↓↓


`・ε・´∩ Right!

I wore Juice=Juice’s T-shirt from the current Hello! Con at today’s rehearsal!!

This T-shirt has a really nice texture、 I love it ( ´▽`)

Sweating more than I thought I would o(^o^)o

That’s all from Miyamoto Karin!!

Good friends ☆

This is Miyamoto Karin from Juice=Juice!!

I went to school today、 and then had vocal training o(^o^)o

At school、 I studied Japanese and health!!

I did reading comprehension questions for Japanese!

I really enjoy thinking about how the characters in the story are feeling、 and time was up before I knew it、、、

The questions I like in particular、
Are questions where several words are extracted from the passage and we’re asked、  does this sentence fit? I really enjoy the time spent thinking about it!!

When I get that ‘It’s this!!’ in one shot、  I’m really happy!

There are tons of things to memorise for health, so it was a little hectic (lol)

But, but! I have to memorise them for tests!!

`・ε・´∩ Right!

I had vocal training after that、

Today I brought out my voice a loーーt ( ´▽`)

Today、 I was taught a lot about how to convey the meaning of lyrics。

From long long ago、 I always expressed the lyrics emotionally a lot of the time、 but you need to pull back at times、、、

Whether you’re pushing it or pulling it, there’s all sorts of variations、、、

It struck me that expressiveness really can run deep!

`・ε・´∩ Right!

A shot of Kanazawa Tomoko-chan and Takagi Sayuki-chan being good friends o(^o^)o


The 2 of them are really cute!

Enjoying the rain ( ´▽`)

Morioka ☆

This is Miyamoto Karin from Juice=Juice!!

Today our independent tour made its stop in Morioka!!

It’s a first! Since it was Morioka、 my heart was thumping as we headed there、、

Here’s me studying whilst on the Shinkansen!

By the way, I was studying music and Japanese!!

For music、 I was studying things like major and minor keys、 and chords、、

While I had reading comprehension questions for Japanese (*´д`*)

It was a bit difficult、 but fun ( ´▽`)

At at our independent concert、、

The two performances were booming、 booming concerts!

I was really sweating、 and when we were bowing, it was all drip drip dripーーー about 5 drops (lol)

My sweat-drenched self after the performance



It was even more amazing than that(lol)

My bangs~~~

But I was so happy with the sense of achievement (*´д`*)

Yet I guess it’s something I can’t helpーー This sweat(lol)

`・ε・´∩ Right!

Today、 I got bread rolls、 and mamebujiru ( ´▽`)

The bread rolls were fluffy and delicious、

While the mamebujiru、 had dumplings called mamebu with walnuts in them、 it was sticky、 and the soup was syrupy as well (´・ω・`)

There are lots of things like that which you can only find in certain areas、 they’re just so delicious that I’ve got to be careful not to overeat!!

I’d like to properly savour the taste、 store it in my mind、 and long for it the next time I go thereー( ´▽`)

The next time I get the chance to go to Iwate prefecture, I’d like to eat wanko soba (*´д`*)

`・ε・´∩ Right!

Today I went to see the Rock-Splitting Cherry Tree!!



I’d like to come and see it in full bloom!!

・*:.。..。.:+・゜Today’s happiness゜・*:.。..。.:+・゜

Feeling my shoes get loose on the way back since the swelling had gone down *^^)v

That’s all、 this was Miyamoto Karin!!

This morning ☆

This is Miyamoto Karin from Juice=Juice!!

When I woke up in the morning and started moving my body、 I was kinda surprised at how light it felt (*´ω`*)

Even the muscles at my abs and my back、 they’re getting hurt less frequently (*´ω`*)(*´ω`*)

I guess I’ve built up my muscles?

It’d be great it that was the case ( ´▽`)

And after that, I went to school!!

For my maths classes、 my notebooks are fulーーl of notes (*´ω`*)

And various others、、、(lol)

I don’t get this and that, so it feels difficult、、、

But I have to do my best (´∀`*)

After school、 I wrote the previous part of this blog post、 I got a bookmark depicting Choco and Jasmine at the graduation ceremony、 and I went to hang out at the home of my friend from my primary and middle school days、

We watched Juice=Juice on YouTube together、

We looked at an exchange diary from our primary school days、 and waxed nostalgic、 it was really fun (´∀`*)

We happily sang Juice=Juice’s songs、 singing together enthusiastically ( ´▽`)

In between that、 we both played TsumTsum、 but I’m not that good at it、 so it was an uphill battle(lol)

I wish I could become better at it ( ´▽`)

`・ε・´∩ Right!

Today I saw a cicada on the veranda、 and I remembered catching them when I was small (^_^;)

My great-grandmother taught me how to catch them with my bare hands (*´ω`*)

You siーlently get close、 then ‘Hoi!’, you catch it with with your thumb and index finger、、

But I can no longer muster up the courage to do it (´・_・`)

Thinking hard about it, just like a cat(lol)

Speaking about cicadas、 I usually see the cicadas with transparent wings every year, but I haven’t seen any this year, so I hope to see them (´・ω・`)

Also、 when I see cicadas、

Berryz Kobo-san’s 「Semi」 plays in my head (ノ∀`)

I really like that slightly heart-rending feeling of a girl returning home、 and the melody of the chorus、

I particularly like the 2nd verse’s lyrics

「I thought of apologising for forgetting about you」

It makes my heart skip a beat (´∀`

`・ε・´∩ Right!

You can reserve tickets for Juice=Juice’s first lead role、

「Koi suru Hello Kitty」 in November! It’s a really cute, idol-ish Hello! Kitty-chan and Juice=Juice, so please make sure to come and see us!!

Details are here→http://sort.eplus.jp/sys/T1U14P002132823P0030001P006001

I’ve been thinking about this a lot recently、 but everything about Kitty-chan is cute, right?

I’ve seen plays done at Sanrio Puroland live on television、
But wherever she is and whomever she’s with、 she’s always kind, she’s an idol no matter where she is (*´ω`*)

I have to follow her example゜+.゜(´▽`人)゜+.゜

Today it’s Choco-chan ( ´▽`)

Nyan ☆

This is Miyamoto Karin from Juice=Juice!!

When I went to Enoshima with my family yesterday、 and when looking it up, I read that we’d be able to see kitties there、 so I was looking forward to that、 but we didn’t see a single one、、、(´;ω;`)

I guess they went and hid somewhere because of the heatー?

I can envisage the kitties not wanting to walk on the hot hot asphalt (*´д`*)

They’d make use of the edges of shadows、、

By the way、 when Jasmine goes out from the balcony in the summer time, and the ground is hot、 her pads seem to get hot, and when she’s outside she rushes back home really speedily(lol)

When we got back home
Jasmine was there as usual、、

She seemed even cuter than usual゜+.゜(´▽`人)゜+.゜

From my phone’s photos folder、 here are some pictures of kitties from when I was doing the photo shoot for Shuukan Famitsu-san (ノ∀`)




They were really cute!!

This photo was taken by my manager-san (*´д`*)

It’s a super cute snapー(ノ∀`)

Kitties are easy to stir、 so it’s pretty difficult to get a good lock on them with a camera、 and I have a really hard time when I’m trying to take a shot of Jasmine (lol)

I hope to come up with all sorts of tricks、 and be able to take more cute shotsーっと(ノ∀`)

`・ε・´∩ Right!

There were a lot of people asking ‘What did you eatー??’ in yesterday’s comments、

A bowl of grilled turban shells and sashimi、 I’ve forgotten the name but I ate shellfish sashimi、 red bream boiled in soy sauce、 and spiny lobster miso soup ( ´▽`)

I love shellfish (ノ∀`)(ノ∀`)

The red bream boiled in soy sauce was particularly delicious、、

I’d like to try raw baby sardines next (*´д`*)(*´д`*)

・*:.。..。.:+・゜Today’s happiness゜・*:.。..。.:+・゜

My back was light (*^^)v

Enoshima ☆

This is Miyamoto Karin from Juice=Juice!!

To make up for being unable to go for a New Year’s shrine visit、 I made a shrine visit to Enoshima Shrine today (*^^)v

I’m exhausted from walking, but I enjoyed myself!!!!

When I was heading to Enoshima…



I was studying up before going there、 it was really fun (≧∇≦*)

Just spending the time freely on the train was awesome!

When I got close to Enoshima、 it felt like the scenery itself was gradually getting closer to the sea、 and it felt like I could smell the seawater even though I was in the train (lol)


I arrived at Enoshima…

After that、 I headed to Enoshima Shrine (ノ∀`)

The view from inside the Enoshima Sea Candle was amazing (*´>∀<`*)

Sadly, I couldn’t see Mt. Fuji、、

But、 I could see Yokohama Landmark Tower、 and the Sky Tree (ノ∀`)

And、 the sea too!!!



There were a lot of people there to bathe in the sea、、

It looked fun~~

And finally, I went for a hot spring footbath (*^^)v

Taking a long trip in my private time after a while、 I walked a lot and sweated a lot、 it was reallllly fun (ノ∀`)(ノ∀`)(ノ∀`)

I got to fully recharge myself、、、

So I’ll do my best this autumnー!!!

Finally, here’s a bonus photo of Jasmine (*^^)v

・*:.。..。.:+・゜ Today’s happiness゜・*:.。..。.:+・゜

Spending the whole day replenishing myself (*^^)v

Makoto-san ☆

This is Miyamoto Karin from Juice=Juice!!



Yesterday、 I forgot to write my thanks、 so thank you very much for your thoughts about the Tropica~l Koisehite~ru that I did at the Aichi event!!

I was surprised and happy because there were a lot of people who praised me!!

Seeing all your comments、 I think it’d be nice if I could sing even more songs that’d bring up your spirits。

Listening to the songs of our senpai、 they really resonate and dwell in my heart、 and it makes me want to listen to them countless times!
So I’d like to do my best to convey to you my favourite songs which’ll hopefully leave an impression in your heart, even if it’s just a little!!

`・ε・´∩ Right!

And today we had a Hello! Project Concert!!

In the middle of it、 the MC Makoto-san、

Talked about the essentials points of playing the drums in a band、

「Whether you can play the drums just after listening to a song」

I thought that was cool。。

I’d like to work hard so that I can perform after listening to a song!!

There’s 3 performances tomorrow!!

Since it’ll be early in the morning, I have to apologise for this short blog post!!

Writing well on the goods!!

Today、 I had a photo shoot with Morning Musume。’14′s Sayashi Riho-san (ノ∀`)

It was the first time for the 2 of us, Sayashi-san and myself, to work together、、

I was nervous and excited at the start、 but at the end I had relaxed and was able to deal with the shoot ( ´∀`)

When we had to hold hands in the beginning、 my heart was all aflutter、、(lol)

Both Sayashi-san and myself don’t normally talk that much、 so the photo shoot felt pretty quiet!!

It felt like the 2 of us blended into the clothes and the location、 it was really fun、 and I really can’t wait to see it when it’s done!! (ノ∀`)

After that、 the interview!!

About the tour、 about our dreams、、

We got to talk a lot v(。・ω・。)v

I’m looking forward to the completed product ( ´∀`)

Friend ☆

This is Miyamoto Karin from Juice=Juice!!

Today I went to the home of a friend of mine from my middle school days (≧ω≦)

She’s a precious friend who’s gone to many Juice=Juice events、 and in our middle school days、 we both studied together as dance leaders、 she’s helped me out in all sorts of ways (≧ω≦)

Those were fun timesーー(≧ω≦)(≧ω≦)(≧ω≦)

When I was greeted at her place、、




Just too cute。。。

Cocoa-chan even woofs cutely ( ´∀`)

I’d like to touch Cocoa-chan more next time ( ´∀`)

And take Cocoa-chan for walks (≧ω≦)(≧ω≦)

And today、 we had takoyaki together、  but even though the packets for the sauce and mayonnaise were well cut、 and we opened them gentーlyーー and nicely、 the cut became huge、 and they fell with a plop! That gave the two of us a laugh (lol)

After that, the 2 of us idly watched YouTube、  and by the time I headed back, the 2 of us were getting sleepy、、(lol) But、 it was really fun (≧ω≦)

`・ε・´∩ Right!

Yesterday and the day before that, I had the same room as Miyazaki Yuka-chan、

She looked really cute with her contacts out and in glasses、 as well as wearing a camisole dressing gown and semi-long pants that really suited herーー( ´∀`)

Yuka-chan’s slender arms made the camisole look good on her (≧ω≦)

I monopolised Yuka-chan ( ´∀`)

It was greatー(≧ω≦)

`・ε・´∩ Right!

Nagoya! Hello!2 ☆

This is Miyamoto Karin from Juice=Juice!!

Thank you very much for your comments yesterday on methods of dealing with times when your head is spinning (≧ω≦)

You wrote all sorts of methods、

I feel like there’ll be a lot of difficulties in pulling them off (lol)

I’ll do my best、 correct the spinning of my head、 and bring up my talking ability ヽ(*´∀`)ノ

I wonder where I should start from firstー??

Today is the second day of the Hello! Project concerts in Nagoya (≧ω≦)

A YAPPARI! performance ヽ(*´∀`)ノ

Today my hair was done in a different way than usual ヽ(*´∀`)ノ



Loose braids ヽ(*´∀`)ノ

It’s looking good, if I do say so myself (lol)

I don’t want to use my short hair as an excuse、 and I’d like to  challenge myself to new hairstyles (≧ω≦)

`・ε・´∩ Right!

Takagi Sayuki-chan sleeping in the luggage racks (≧ω≦)



I took this shot thinking it was pretty funny!!

I’m unexpectedly the type of person who can sleep anywhere、

Wherever I may be, I can immediately fall asleep (lol)

What’s more、 I’m in such deep sleep that I don’t have any dreams (lol)

Previously I used to often see dreams、 and although I really enjoy experiencing dreams、 recently I haven’t had any、、

I wish I could see some soon。。

Although I hate scary dreams (lol)

When I was small、 I was scared of monsters、 so I thought I had to fall asleep quickly、 but I didn’t want to have nightmares、 so I was like ‘Urghーー!!’ (lol)

But I quickly fell asleep anyway (lol)

I hope I have a good dream tomorrow (≧ω≦)

♪。:・*♪ Today’s happiness ♪。:・*♪

My abs are hurting more than usual (≧ω≦)
