Yajima Maimi

The 5 of us…:sparkle: (*^^*)

d819e811_640 36cb62cb_640 7d5347a5_640Good morning
It’s Maimi

Today, February 21st,
is the 7th anniversary of ℃-ute’s major debut(^o^)/*

Seven years ago today,
we debuted with “Sakura Chirari”

When I look at pictures from back then,
everyone is so thinΣ( ̄。 ̄ノ)ノ
And really, really small(・Д・)

I can feel the passage of time

That said, I haven’t changed as much as the other members(;^_^A

Even now I have cherubic features(^-^)/

Our next single coming out on March 5th will be our 24th,

and in 7 years we’ve released 24 singles…

At first we had a lot of cute songs, but in these 7 years we’ve gotten to sing a variety of songs, like balads, rock songs, and mature songs

There are a lot of people who learned about and started supporting ℃-ute recently,

so I wonder if there are few people who knew about us when we debuted,

but 7 years later, a future like this was waiting for us~

I’m grateful for my encounters with everyone

And then, I’m grateful to everyone who has been involved with and supported us during these 7 years

℃-ute will continue to dash forward from here on(*^^*) Please come along with us

Please continue to support us

(1)

Changing the subject,
yesterday I had a recording for the FM-PORT program that airs every Friday at 10:00PM,

“℃-ute Yajima Maimi no I My Me Maimi~”

Thank you for the many messages♪───O(≧∇≦)O────♪

The recording time was rea~lly fun

After the radio, I had one more job

It finished earlier than planned,
so I went shopping for a little bit,

and returned home(^o^)

My brother returned from Singapore 3 days earlier,

and yesterday, my grandmother suddenly came to our house(≧∇≦)

My brother went by bullet train to get her in the morning,

and when I returned home from work,
e~veryone had gathered at my house

I went out to eat with my grandmother, my parents, my brother(^o^)

Unfortunately, my oldest brother wasn’t there,

but it was the first time in awhile 5 of us have driven together

When we were little,
five of us, my parents and my 2 brothers and I, would always travel together in the car going to my grandmother’s house or on a trip,

so I started feeling nostalgic

When the 3 of us sat in the back in the past, we had a lot of elbowroom since we were small,

but now we’ve grown up, so it feels more cramped than it did in the past when we all ride in the car(^◇^;)

But I’m happy all of us could go and eat(^o^)/*

After returning home,

I took a bath,
wrote the day-before-yesterday’s update,
and watched 4 episodes of the overseas drama “Fringe” at once in the living room~

I fell asleep before I knew it,
so my mom woke me up and said “Go sleep in your room“,

and I moved to my bed,

and I had a dream about what I had seen happening in “Fringe” just before((((;゜Д゜)))))))

A~h, once again I felt, how should I put it,
simple?… easy to influence?…(^◇^;)

With the momentum I had,
I woke up and watched the remaining 2 discs

I was surprised how I was able to watch all 6 discs in the set at once,

and Nakajima Saki-chan has the second boxset, so I’ll borrow it from her

And then, tonight at 1:02AM~,

I, Yajima Maimi, finally appear on the TV Tokyo program
“Urero☆Mitaiken Shoujo #7″

We only rehearsed on that day

There was an audience for the performance,
and it was filmed without cuts like a play

I was so nervous it made me think “It’s been a long time since I’ve been this nervous“,
but it really was a good experience

…Or should I say, it made me think that the regular cast who does this every week is really amazingΣ( ̄。 ̄ノ)ノ

I’m nervous to watch it as well(^◇^;)
I’ll properly check it outσ(^_^;)

Everyone, if you have time, please be sure to watch

p.s.
Today’s pictures are off-shots from “Shonen Champion”,
which is currently on sale

Those who haven’t seen it yet, please be sure to check it out

(2)

(3)

Well then, I’ll have a happy day today, the 7th anniversary of our debut(^o^)/*

Until tomorrow~

71e7a19e_640 6f984a5c_640 592769fa_640Good morning
It’s Maimi

I saw everyone’s smiles at yesterday’s Hello! Project concert, so I was really happy

Everyone who participated,
everyone who cheered for us,

thank you very much

During the concert,
the happy announcement I wrote about in yesterday’s blog was made,

 

and what What

℃-ute’s first event in Taiwan has been decided(((o(*゜▽゜*)o)))

H~a~p~p~y

There have been people who come from Taiwan to meet us,

and each time they said “Please come to Taiwan some day“,

I thought “Ah… I want to go to Taiwan too(´・_・`)”,

and it’s finally going to happen♪───O(≧∇≦)O────♪

After I heard about our Taiwan event,

someone from Taiwan said “Please come to Taiwan some day!(>人<;)”,

and I wanted to tell them, but couldn’t and thought “I can’t tell you yet, but the plans have been made☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆”lol

I think there’s a lot of people in Taiwan who haven’t been able to come and meet us,

so I’m rea~lly happy to be able to go and meet all of them(^o^)

Not restricted to just Taiwan,
but I know there are people in a variety of countries who cheer for ℃-ute, and I want to go there and meet them too

 

I hope this becomes a year where I can meet a lot of people in Japan and overseas…

By the way,
yesterday Berryz Koubou’s Shimizu Saki-chan, who is next to me, gave me cute homemade cookies for Valentine’s Day(=´∀`)人(´∀`=)

It was so cute it seemed like a waste to eat, but I ate it immediately

It was so~ delicious
Thanks Saki

 

And then,
the thing on the left is what S/mileage’s Fukuda Kanon-chan gave me

I ate it this morning
It was delicious too~

17→18:haato:21→22 (Maimi:cherry: )

4c37c3e8_640 5ab92f71_640 d492d910_640HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAI

Hagiwara Mai-chan just turned 18-years-old~♪───O(≧∇≦)O────♪

Congrats

It’s a miracle that we have the same birthday~

Mai is like a little sister to e~~veryone

She has a really cute character,
she’s clingy,
she’s frank,
she expresses her affection straight-forwardly…
She’s a girl who can be loved by anyone

Therefore, whenever she teases me,

I’m like “Hm~~ I can forgive her if it’s Mai(//∇//)”

I’m being too easy on her, aren’t I…σ(^_^;)lol

The dressing room is always lively when Mai is there,

and she’s a~lways talking like “This happened today~ I did this~…”
She’s also like a little sister in that way~

But,
there are a lot of times she surprises me and makes me think “She thinks like an adult~

Every day she goes about her life while thinking about a lot of things,

and she’s good at noticing what’s happening around her

She watches the other members more than anyone else,

so she notices abnormal behavior and changes right away,
and she’s a kind girl who, if someone is away from the rest,
will naturally become concerned and call out “Come here

She’s a girl who can understand people’s feelings

She’s rescued me countless times too
Mai can see through everything,
so when I’m silent, she immediately figures it out and says “Maimi-chan, is something bothering you?”(;^_^A

No one can keep a secret from Mai~( ̄▽ ̄)lol

Because she’s like that, she is loved by everyone

I love Mai too

Let’s both have a wonderful year

Happy 18th birthday

 

And then, today Yajima safely turned 22-years-old

22, huh~
I feel like only my age has grown and nothing has changed about me,

but when I was little, 22 seemed really grown up…

I always thought “I want to become an adult soon” when I was a child,

but I didn’t need to be in such a hurry (It can’t happen that quickly anyway…lol), and I’ve become 22-years-old in the blink of an eye…

But, I must show my gratitude.

Though I don’t know what will happen in my life, I’ve been able to pile on another year safely

On my 21st birthday as well,
a lot of people said to me
“Have a wonderful year“,

and just as everyone had wished,
it was a year full of happiness for me

There were a lot of things~
There’s a lot of memories I can’t ever forget…

All of it is thanks to everyone, e~~~veryone who supports me

Family, friends, the other members, the staff, those who cheer for me…

I’m filled with gratitude for my encounters and interactions with each and every one of you

I’m 22-years-old starting today,
and I’ll move forward day by day with gratitude this year too

There are days I thought “Will tomorrow hurry up?(>_<)”
and “I want to forget today(>_<)”,

but no matter the day, none of them were useless, and they’re all connected to the present…

Today, tomorrow, and the day after,

each day is necessary for me to become more and more of an adult

The birthday event in Osaka today was as fun as possible。・゜・(ノД`)・゜・。

Everyone who celebrated at the venue,
Airi (Suzuki Airi-chan) who gave her comments,
the staff who recorded a video,

and then, everyone who sent their feelings…

Thank you so, so very much

I want to see a lot of wonderful things with everyone I love in my 22nd year too

Please continue to support me from now on too

 

 

Father, mother,
thank you for giving me life

20:king:Nacky:sparkleheart: (by Maimi)

28e0232e_640 b454e49c_640 e4536af1_640Happy birthday Nacky

The snow stopped, the sky cleared up, and the stars look more beautiful than ever

Amongst that scenery, the date has changed to February 5th, and it’s Nakajima Saki-chan’s birthday

Nacky has become an adult\(^o^)/

Nacky, congratulations on your 20th birthday

 

Now I have a friend amongst the members who is in her 20s☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆

Hehe I’m happy

The 8-year-old Nacky is now 20…
It feels strange, doesn’t it
We’ve been together for such a long time

Twentieth birthdays are something special…

A variety of things from the past 20 years come to mind,
the gratitude towards each and every one of those things boils over…

And we join the world of adults…

I wonder, has Nacky’s mental state changed??( ´ ▽ ` )

Nacky is already a level-headed person though…

She has big and sparkling eyes and is so cute it makes you want to protect her But I see a really cool woman It’s something on the inside

 

I really feel that she has a lot of things that I don’t

Therefore, I look up to her and often think “I want to be more like that“…

Well, there are things like that with each of the members(uvu)

If I start talking about Nacky’s wonderful points, I can’t stop,

but she’s level-headed, she has a strong sense of justice, she thinks of others before herself, she’s able to listen to others’ opinions, she has an abundance of emotion, she’s attentive, she’s a hard worker, she has a thirst for knowledge, she’s modest, she’s kind, her will to do things she’s decided on is strong… And there are a lot, a lo~~t more things

I really respect her

Nacky’s amazing, and her good points keep popping into my mind

She’s such a wonderful woman, I really can’t find any flawsσ(^_^;)

I want to continue to receive a lot of motivation from her and work hard together…

Cooking, photography, fashion… It’s wonderful how she has a lot of hobbies too

It’s good to enjoy a variety of things in life

Nacky is able to discover a lot of ways to have fun by herself… It’s wonderful…

 

Actually, the birthday present I got for Nacky was really big…f^_^;

We have birthday events in Nagoya and Osaka today and tomorrow for the members born in February,
Nacky, Hagiwara Mai-chan, and myself,

so I gave her the present on the night of the 4th(^^)

Yeah(≧∇≦)
She was delighted~(T ^ T)
I’m glad。・゜・(ノД`)・゜・。

The 2 of us got really fired up saying “Let’s do our best at the events starting tomorrow((`・∀・´))”

Though while saying that, my heart is pounding…(;^_^A

But, but
The day Nacky turns 20 is an important day, and I want her to have a wonderful day and enjoy it to its fullest

Those who are participating and those who unfortunately can’t, let’s have a magnificent celebration

Nacky, from the bottom of my heart,
happy birthday

Thank you for being born……

I’m glad that I was able to meet Nacky

Last teens:excite2:Σ(・□・;)

fc555236_640 7dbb3d55_640 2ccf911d_640Good morning
It’s Maimi

(1)

Yesterday we had a public recording for NHK’s “MUSIC JAPAN”,

and to everyone who cheered for us at the venue,
everyone who cheered for us in the comments,
and everyone who cheered for us in their hearts,

thank you so very much

I’m always nervous at recordings for “MUSIC JAPAN”,

and amongst all the artists who appeared at the recording yesterday,

℃-ute was the top batter

Therefore, I thought I’d be more nervous than ever……

But they played “Tokkaiko Junjou” when they were announcing the artists before our appearance ,

and all of the audience chanted “Oi! Oi!” really loudヽ(;▽;)ノ

Everyone’s cheering made me happy,

and I was able to enjoy it as if it were a real concert

In addition, I’m really, really grateful to the staff of “MUSIC JAPAN”,

because in addition to the debut of the new song coming out March 5th, “Love take it all”,

we also were able to perform “Kiss me Aishiteru”ヽ(;▽;)ノ

Being able to perform 2 songs…

I was really, really happy

In regards to “Love take it all”, it’s a really cool song

I think that we’ll get more chances to perform it and the other A-side,
“Kokoro no Sakebi wo Uta ni Shitemita”, from here on,

so I’m looking forward to a lot of people hearing them

I’ll announce when the on-air date gets closer, so please be sure to check it out(*^^*)

And then
Something happy happened yesterday

The staff at the program gave Nakajima Saki-chan, Hagiwara Mai-chan, and myself birthday presents(T ^ T)

I was surprised(T ^ T)

In addition,
all of the members of “Akaikouen”, who were also appearing, said “It’s a little early, but happy birthday“,

and Tsuno Maisa-san gave me a letter and present。・゜・(ノД`)・゜・。

(2)

Receiving presents from 2 people I didn’t expect really filled me with happiness( ´ ▽ ` )
I’m happy

Akaikouen came to ℃-ute’s Budoukan performance,

and we talked a little bit backstage at “COUNT DOWN JAPAN” last year…

Back then they also said “We support ℃-ute“…(T ^ T)

I’m rea~lly happy
I hope we can appear together again sometime

Soon we’ll each become a year older,

and today is Nacky’s last day as a teenager

Twenty years ago today, Nacky still hadn’t been born yet(´-`).。oO(

What was I doing around that time??

At any rate, I’m happy I can spend the last day of Nacky’s teens with her

It’ll be wonderful

(3)

(↑An offshot from ℃-ute’s photobook, which is currently on sale)

Today “Shuukan SPA!” goes on sale

It includes a feature called “Hello! Project’s Counterattack”,

and Morning Musume ’14, Berryz Koubou, ℃-ute, S/mileage, and Juice=Juice appear

Everyone, please be sure to check it out

3e86ebad_640 121c9698_640 588a0f85_640Good evening
It’s Maimi

Today is Setsubun(^o^)

(1)

Out with the demons~ε=ε=ε=ε=ε=ε=┌(; ̄◇ ̄)┘
In with the good fortune~ヽ((^-^))ノ=3=3=3

I hope that a lot of good fortune arrives for everyone…

 

Yesterday we had the “Tokai no Hitorigurashi/Aitte Motto Zanshin” release commemoration polaroid & individual handshake events in Osaka

It was a fun day

A lot of people at the polaroid and handshake events gave me birthday wishes

I’m happy…

But I still can’t believe that it’s almost my birthday and I’ll turn 22…(・_・;

Why is that??σ(^_^;)

Be that as it may, I want to enjoy the remaining 3 days I have as a 21-year-old(^^)

I received a lot of kind words yesterday like
“This is my last handshake with the 21-year-old Maimi-chan“,
“Thank you for this year as well…“, and so on…ヽ(;▽;)ノ

Being able to take pictures and talk with everyone was rea~lly fun

There were also people who were worried asking “Aren’t you exhausted coming to Osaka after your concerts in Fukuoka the other day?“,

but rather, it’s filled me with spirit instead\(^o^)/

I receive a lot of warm feelings
Thank you

To everyone who I couldn’t meet yesterday,
and everyone who I’ve yet to meet,
I’m looking forward to the day when we can

Now then

℃-ute is at NHK Hall

Today we have a public recording for “MUSIC JAPAN”(((o(*゜▽゜*)o)))

We’ve finished tuning,
we’ve finished the camera rehearsal…

So all that’s left is to wait for the performance

We had a meal in the dining room, and took care of all sorts of preparations

All of the members are in really high spirits in the dressing room(^ν^)lol

(2)

I think there’s people who’ve noticed,

but today everyone tried wearing a hoodie in another member’s member colorlol

(3)

It’s fresh and something I’m not used to seeing d(^_^o)

The dressing room has a harmonious atmosphere like that, but we have to do our best to show everyone a sharp and cool ℃-ute during the performance

Since a variety of artists will be appearing, a variety of fans will be gathering too,

and so that ℃-ute can make an impression on those fans,

and also charm the people watching on TV, we will combine our power and explode

A~lright
I’m going to enter concentration mode

Everyone, if it’s alright, please give us your power

Well then, I’m o~ff

Here is an announcement in regards to the early ticket application for “℃-ute Concert Tour 2014 Haru ~℃-ute no Honne~” on the Hello! Project official home page

The deadline is February 5th

Fukuoka~(((o(* ゜▽゜*)o)))

e9674792_640 e80c9b62_640 21a27cdc_640Good morning
It’s Maimi

Yesterday we had Hello! Project concerts in Fukuoka

(1)

With the previous performances in Hokkaido, each of the Hello! Project members had a turn during the solo corner,

and we didn’t know who’d sing at the next performance in Fukuoka until about 3 days before

And then, unbelievably,
Yajima performed at the solo corner in Fukuoka(゜0゜)

I was able to sing again

I’m really, really grateful for getting to sing twice

In addition,
yesterday was also the debut of one of the songs from ℃-ute’s double A-side single coming out March 5th,

“Kokoro no Sakebi wo Uta ni Shitemita”\(^o^)/

After the performance, Suzuki Airi-chan told me
“Even though it was the first time we performed it,
they were chanting “L・O・V・E Lovely Maimi” during the verses~“…(^o^)

Ah! That part of everyone is really amazinglol

Does it happen reflexively??

I was really happy

I think most people still haven’t heard it, so I hope that everyone can listen to it soon

There’s one more song,
“Love take it all”

Also, I was able to see people already wearing my birthday t-shirt here and there from up on stage

(2)

I was really happy
Thank you

The other Hello! Project members said
“It’s a little early, but happy birthday“,

and gave me presents and letters

…That said, everyone is so good at picking out presents…

Cute clothes,
cute handkerchiefs…

I’ll use them a lotヽ(;▽;)ノ

Thanks

And then,
Morning Musume ’14′s Ikuta Erina-chan, who is from Fukuoka, gave us these treats

(3)

Strawberry daifuku

They were rea~~lly delicious~

Thanks, Eripon

Alright
Right now ℃-ute is right in the middle of the “Tokai no Hitorigurashi/Aitte Motto Zanshin” release commemoration polaroid event…

The 2nd one just now finished

I’ll enjoy the rest too

Joke…(´・_・`) :aseru:

8bd581e0_640 741439e6_640 32ab33ba_640Good mo~rning
It’s Maimi

Did you think there was something funny about yesterday’s blog??(つД`)

My mom told me
“The play costing 10 billion yen was a joke!(^◇^;)”………

“Eh? But didn’t they say it was 10 billion yen during the play……?(;▽;)”

“I told you~, that was a joke(^◇^;) Didn’t everyone in the audience laugh??”

“Eh~!∑(゜Д゜) Is that so?
Even though I casually said to Airi
‘I can’t believe it cost 10 billion yen! It cost that much to make a play like this! We have to watch the play closely!’?Σ( ̄。 ̄ノ)ノ”

“Do you understand just how much 10 billion yen is?f^_^;)”

“I understand……(´・Д・) …That said, it’s so embarassing Eh? Everyone who read my blog is definitely thinking ‘What a fool~(; ̄ェ ̄) Maimi~(´・_・`) Sigh…’( ̄◇ ̄;)”

By the way,
my mom saw “Sanadajuuyuushi” before me!(◎_◎;)

That’s why 10 billion yen was a joke…(//~//) I’m sorry

Alright! Let’s change the subjectε=ε=ε=ε=ε=ε=┌(; ̄◇ ̄)┘Woosh~

 

Tada~~~

Madonna-san’s concert DVD

During our shoot yesterday, the costume designer said

“Everyone~ Watch this( ^ ^ )/□”, and gave us 3 DVDs

It’s someone we always work with for tours,

so they’ve created a lot of outfits for ℃-ute(^-^)

It seems we can learn from a variety of things, like how she’s dressed, her posture, and how she uses her outfits…

And the designer said “After all is said and done, it’s a wonderful show too“…

There are 3 DVDs, so we decided that 3 members out of the 5 would take one home, and then trade them after we finish watching(^O^)

And I brought one of Madonna-san’s concert DVDs home with me

Madonna-san’s concert…
Hehehe I can’t wait to watch
I want to watch closely and study it(^-^)

Thank you, costume designer

And then, I received a birthday present from the staff at the shoot yesterday( ; _ ; )/

(2)

I’m happy…(/ _ ; )

It’s a cute mini-pouch,
and I’m already carrying small things around in it today

I will use it with great care from here on

All of the staff, thank you

The shoot finished early,
so I wandered around Omotesandou~(^-^)
And I went shopping

For dinner, I went with my mom to eat shabu-shabu
The 2 of us ate until we were full(;^_^A

That’s right
Earlier,
my brother called my mom

I talked to him on the phone as well,

and he said that he’s going to Singapore(´・Д・)

How nice, how nice
I want to go to Singapore(´・Д・)」

Be that as it may, I’m unable to go,

so I’ll wait for him to bring me back a gift( ̄+ー ̄)

Also, it seems he’s going to New Caledonia on his trip

I tried researching it yesterday, and a lot of beautiful pictures came up

I want to try going some day~…

Now then, now then
February begins today

Farewell Januaryヽ(;▽;)ノ
Pleased to meet you, February

Today we have Hello! Project concerts in Fukuoka

I’ll enjoy it with all my might

Sanadajuuyuushi:sparkle: ( ・ω・)

10ffed0d_640 bdb000d7_640 0ae9246f_640Good afternoon
It’s Maimi

Yesterday I went to see the play “Sanadajuuyuushi” with Suzuki Airi-chan

(1)

While watching TV earlier,
they showed the practice for “Sanadajuuyuushi” during a report,

and it made me think “Wow I want to see this“(^O^)

It has an amazing cast and an extremely large scale set,
and I was surprised when I heard it took 10 billion yen to makeΣ( ̄。 ̄ノ)ノ

I was astonished by the production, which used a variety of devices

And then, I took notice of the sword fight

A violent battle unfolded on top of a set that spun around,

and it looked good from every angle…(°ロ°)
It moved at a speed my eyes couldn’t follow,
and it was a highlight of the play

In order to make the sword fight look big, their stances were so wide it looked like their knees would touch the floorΣ(・□・;)

There was something else that surprised me and Airi

Yokoyama Kazutoshi-san, who I appeared in “Ran” and “Taklamakan” with, appeared in the play

I’ve seen a variety of plays with sword fights in them,
and I’m always surprised to see Yokoyama-san appear♪───O(≧∇≦)O────♪

Once again I was moved thinking “Amazing

In addition,
Murai Ryouta-san, who co-starred with me in “Ran”, appeared in this play too

His role was completely different than his frivolous person character Shoutarou in “Ran”, and I was able to study by watching him play a variety of roles like this(^^)

The thing I felt most when watching this play was its tempo♪

The tempo was really nice, the conversations were smooth,

and the way the lines were split up and the pauses caused a lot of laughs(^O^)

The play was 3-and-a-half hours with an intermission,

but it felt like it passed really fast

It’s amazing that the cast does that every day

I hope they can make it all the way to closing day without any injuries

 

After the play, I said bye bye to Airi and went to rehearsal for the birthday event on February 5th, 6th, and 7th with Nakajima Saki-chan and Hagiwara Mai-chan

(2.3)

I’ve got to properly review yesterday’s rehearsal

It was a 4 hour rehearsal,
but it was over in the blink of an eye,
and I wanted to practice more

Date with Chinami:haato:Part ②♪( ´ε` )

82b0ad4e_640 98b109a1_640 a06486b5_640Good morning
It’s Maimi

I’ll continue from yesterday

The things I wrote about in yesterday’s updates were things I usually see from Chinami (※Berryz Koubou’s Tokunaga Chinami-chan)…

I also saw a side of her I’d never seen before

When we sat on a bench in the park and ate what we bought at the stands,

from somewhere around us we heard

“Hello~~~“, and Chinami’s little sister came running over

After that, Chinami’s family came in succession…\(^o^)/

When we were still Hello! Project Kids,
I remember her little sisters being rea~lly small and peeking out from behind their mother’s legs

But they’ve become this big…ヽ(;▽;)ノ …I was really moved(T ^ T)

“Let’s go over to the stands~(^^)/~~~”

While looking at her sisters from behind as we left the park,

Chinami said with really kind eyes
“○○ loves fashion, look The coat and backpack she is wearing right now are Chinami’s old ones(^^)

But ○○ has no interest in fashion at all~

It’s funny how different their characters are~

At that instant I really felt “Ah, Chinami’s such a big sister

Speaking of which,
my brothers’ and my personality and types are completely different

Is that how it is with siblings?

 

Both of Chinami’s hands were full with things she had bought and she couldn’t split her chopsticks,

so she used her mouth to split them,

and her older sister became annoyed and said
“Don’t use your mouth“,

and it made me think “Ah~, Chinami’s a little sister…

Actually, a little earlier I had split my chopsticks with my mouth just like Chinamiσ(^_^;)
The two of us will need to reflect on our ways…~(・・))

I was filled with warmth as I watched and thought
“Sisters are nice

Chinami’s family gradually contacted each other,
met up, and walked together…

Chinami’s mama got toppogi and shared them asking
“Do you want some?“, and she also bought baby sponge cake for us(((o(*゜▽゜*)o)))

One of their older relatives was also there,

and Chinami looked cute acting like a needy child to her(o^^o)

We all went and sat in the park, but the older lady stood behind Chinami, and Chinami rested her head against her stomach the e~ntire time

For e~~veryone to gather at a festival like this, they must get along really well~

I thought “How wonderful“, and felt really warm

It was a really fun time(^o^)/*

Around 5:00PM we said bye bye to each other

Once again I rode the train and transfered at the same station I always transfer at,

and suddenly there was someone looking at me from the sideΣ(゜д゜lll)

I was surprised and yelled “WahΣ( ̄。 ̄ノ)ノ” outloud…(-。-;

The person was my close friend

I became excited at once

But my mom had come to pick me up at that station, so we couldn’t switch trains together and I had to say bye bye to her。・゜・(ノД`)・゜・。

Afterwards, when I was talking with my close friend on LINE,

I said “You notice things well(^O^)”,

and she responded “I know how you walk(^^)”…

Eh??(・Д・) I have a characteristic walk??

I wonder what it’s like? Everyone? lol

Even though it was only for a moment, I was glad I got to meet her

Afterwards, I met up with my mom and went shopping

It was fun~
It was a really satisfying day off

Thank you for reading about my day off these past 2 days

 

From here I’ll change the subject to yesterday!

Together with Berryz Koubou’s Sudou Maasa-chan,

I was interviewed for the Radio Nippon program which airs every Wednesday at 1:20PM~,

“SATOYAMA in KANAGAWA”

(1)

The 2 of us doing radio together… It felt really fresh(*^^*)

It’ll air on February 5th and 12th, so please be sure to check it out

After the recording,
they surprised me with a birthday cake(つД`)ノ

It was such a surprise(T ^ T)

(2)

In addition, it was a Mont Blanc cake,
which I love

I was so happy

The Mont Blanc was delicious
Thank you

And then,
at night we had a release commemoration handshake event for “Alo-Hello! ℃-ute 2014″, which is currently on sale

(3)

A lot of people came even though it was a weekdayヽ(;▽;)ノ

There were also a lot of people who said “It’s a little early, but happy birthday“,

so I was really happy

I’m glad I was able to meet a lot of people

I think there are also people who unfortunately couldn’t come,

but thank you for supporting us still

I’ll be happy if we can meet next time

Well then, well then, let’s enjoy the afternoon too(^o^)/*

Until tomorrow’s update~

There’s an announcement regarding the early ticket application for “℃-ute Concert Tour 2014 Spring ~℃-ute no Honne~” on the official Hello! Project home page
