AKB48 was in the Philippines for the very first time for the Cool Japan Festival on November 7 and 8.
During the Japanese culture festival, the AKB48’s Team8 performed 4 times.
According to Ota Nao, the 12 girls of the group were nervous about local reception at first.
“But when we stood on stage, the cheers from our fans really cheered me up,” said Nao.
She said that she hoped to return to the Philippines with the band and that people would “remember each member's face and name.” awwww.
