I'm sure you will be happy that you went! Please join us!

ab: Are there any fashion-styles, clothes, or accessories that have grabbed your attention recently? What kind of look do you usually go for?
NiKi: I like simple, basic fashion. I came here wearing denim today. I like to wear casual kinds of clothes all the time. If you wear something unusual, people might think that you are wearing it again. So I tend to buy simple, casual clothes that you can match with almost anything. Even though I usually buy these types of clothes, but I also sometimes buy fast fashion brands. I usually buy good, simple items, and then use them for a long time. I also love denim! I really like the denim jeans! Oh, and I'm into denim jackets, too! I really am a big fan of denim!

ab: Niki, you've been posting photos of denim clothes on Instagram recently! Some of the pieces have a simple, classic look, but it seems like they often also feature fun, playful elements!

NiKi: Yeah, definitely! I always like to include a bit of color in the outfits that I wear. The designs are usually quite simple, but I think it's nice to also incorporate some colors and a few patterns.
ab: What are you into right now?

NiKi: I absolutely love acai bowls! They are awesome (lol)! And it feels like you are eating a dessert! Sometimes if I don't feel too hungry I'll even have one for lunch! I've been eating them quite a lot recently. It's easy to go into a restaurant alone and have one to yourself!

ab: Really? You just go in by yourself and order (lol)! Your first photo album was released last October. That was shot in Hawaii, right? Did you get a chance to pick-up an acai bowl while you were there?

NiKi: Yes, I did (lol)! I often get them in Tokyo, but I really wanted to try one in Hawaii! I posted a photo of an axai bowl in a separate stylebook!

ab: It is bringing together things that are beneficial for your health and appearance!

NiKi: Yes, that's true! But I think taste is also important! If you are trying to maintain your personal health, it can be difficult if the food you are eating is not tasty. That's why its important to find dishes that are particularly delicious! Acai bowls are healthy and can be good for a beauty regime, but I think the best thing about them is that they taste fantastic!

ab: "TGC Kitakyushu 2018" has a been gaining a great deal of attention. It seems like there will be visitors attending from outside the prefecture! Do you have a message for all the people out there who are looking forward to attending "TGC Kitakyushu 2018?"

NiKi: You'll definitely have a great time if you come along. From start to finish, I hope everyone really enjoys themselves. It would be lovely if people get the chance to make some great memories during the event. I'm sure you will be happy that you went! Please join us!
