On June 18th, NMB48 members Yamamoto Sayaka (18) and Watanabe Miyuki (18) went to a Kobe department store for a ‘Super Coolbiz‘ PR event. Coolbiz is a government campaign to get people to wear lighter clothing during the summer and thus conserve energy by having their air conditioners on temperatures that aren’t too low.
The two members of NMB48 are often wearing mini-skirts on stage, but at the event, they participated in a fashion show showing off some very breathable pants that were made to be easy to move around in. Yamamoto commented, “We don’t normally wear clothes like this.”
Before the fashion show, there was a talk event where they introduced a scarf soaked in water. Watanabe showed her surprise, “It’s really cool and refreshing.”
