#21 Berryz Kobo’s Final Concert – Looking Back on the Idols that have been Uniting the World for the Past Four and a Half Years(3/3)

  |  Next
Global Popularity

Berryz Kobo has strong support from their fans, even overseas.
The biggest Japanese idols to first perform in Myanmar were also Chinami Tokunaga, Maasa Sudo and Miyabi Natsuyaki of Berryz Kobo, which I’ve written about in this column on a previous occasion.

#50 Japanese Idols Representing Japan on the World Stage – Interview with Berryz Kobo Members, Shimizu Saki and Tokunaga Chinami – Part Two

I regret not being able to see the performance they gave in Bangkok, Thailand, in February this year. I have loads of friends in Thailand who absolutely love Berryz Kobo. As their friend, I know all to well just how much they love and support these girls, and how much they appreciate the fact that they made repeated visits to Bangkok to perform for them. I wish I could have been there to enjoy this moment with them.

I was happy to hear from a Japanese friend who went to Bangkok to watch the concert, how amazing it was and how great the Thai fans were. The girls continued to unite Japan with the world right up until the very end.

After their Budokan performance I had one thing to say to the members of Berryz Kobo, and I’m sure all of their fans feel the same.
Thank you. And all the best for what’s to come.
