Merry Christmas everybody and I hope you’re all having a wonderful time during the holiday period.
It’s been one hell of a year for Fukushima residents with nothing much to bring them joy in a region that was devastated by the tsunami/earthquake in March and then by the nuclear disaster that unfolded. Several AKB48 members along with the theater manager Togosaki went to Fukushima yesterday to bring some festive cheer as part of the Dareka no Tame ni project. Kojima, Sasshi, Yukirin, Lemon, Ranran and Yagi dressed in cute Santa outfits bought some gifts for the kids and performed some songs and it was nice to see those that came to see AKB48 were smiling and enjoying themselves. AKB48 have been at the forefront of those Japanese celebrities/musicians that have tried their best to help those in the Tohoku region. I’m sure the residents of Fukushima yesterday were delighted they came down on Christmas Day by giving their precious time to bring some happiness into their lives.
