To everyone who has always been cheering me on。

This may be sudden、 but I、 Ogawa Makoto, have an announcement to make to everyone who has been cheering me on。

On the 31st of March 2015、 I will step away from the world of entertainment, which I have been part of since I was 13 until now, for the time being。


With this sudden announcement、 those of you who have supported me may indeed fully feel that it is inexcusable、 but this decision was made after thinking and worrying about it in my own way for the past couple of years。


Celebrating my 27th birthday、 with my 30th birthday right in front of my eyes、 I will now bring my path so far to an end for the time being、 and as the woman Ogawa Makoto、 I’ve been thinking that I’ll now make a start from zero on a new path。
I haven’t decided on anything from April onwards、 but while taking advantage of my precious experience up to now、 I’d like to face various new challenges。
And、 I beg for your kindness if there comes a time someday when I return to the world of showbusiness。


The many people I met and the many joys I received in these 14 years that passed in the blink of an eye、 they are the treasures of my life。


I am immensely grateful to everyone who’s supported me up until now、 and、 the people I’ve worked with。


Thank you so very much。


And、 it would make me happy if you would remain a supporter of Ogawa Makoto who is making her new start。


I am truly grateful from the bottom of my heart。
Ogawa Makoto

Sayu ♡

Yesterday at Yokohama Arena、 I went to watch the graduation LIVE concert for Morning Musume。14 leader 「Michishige Sayumi-chan」





When I entered the venue、 as far as the eye could see, it was filled in Sayu’s image colour, pink

Already、 the thumping of my heart wasn’t stopping, even before it started。



From when the performance started、 the sight of Sayu’s impressive coolness and cuteness、 it gave me goosebumps many times over。

It truly was a wonderful performance

Devoting a period of 12 years just for Morning Musume。、 it’s because it’s Sayu that this kind of space could be brought forth, and I was moved from the bottom of my heart。

Holding back her tears until the end、 occasionally mixing in a smile、 she pulled off a truly splendid, Sayu-like graduation ceremony。


It’s really great that the fans could see that moment with their own eyes 4426083[1]


Sayu ♡


From when she became leader、 the pressure must have been beyond words…


For your 12 years、 truly, thank you so much for your hard work。

Leader Michishige Sayumi was really cool ♡

From today, your time is for yourself。
To make up for how much you’ve run along continuously until now、 have a good rest, okay 2492[1]

Once again, congratulations on your graduation。



And、 to all the fans。

Morning Musume。 will soon turn into Morning Musume。15、 and we beg for your kindness gakiheart3

Yesterday, I went :kirakira:

Morning Musume’s Budokan live show
It was Niigaki Risa-chan and Mitsui Aika-chan’s graduation performance :kirakira:

Everyone that was on stage was shining brightly

The sight of them giving it their all was cool

I wasn’t in Morning Musume at the same time as Mitsui-chan, but whenever we met, she always said, “Ogawa-saa~n,” and came over to talk to me with a smile. That was impressive.

Her graduation letter overflowed with kindness, typical of Mitsui-chan.
I think she was surely troubled more than others because of her foot injury, but she worked hard.

And then, Gaki-san.
Until the very last moment, she splendidly carried out her role as leader.

Precisely because we’re generation-mates and were always together, I know how much Gaki-san has grown.
She was super cool.

To the two of you, congratulations on your graduation :heart:

It was a truly magnificent stage, from which Morning Musume’s history could be keenly felt :heart:

5th gen members :heart: :heart: :heart:
