It was revealed on Shinoda Mariko’s blog that she and other AKB48 members recently held a fireworks party. According to the entry, Maeda Atsuko and Oshima Yuko organized the event so that Maeda could fulfill her wish of “wanting to watch the fireworks with everybody for the last time” before her graduation from AKB48. Shinoda also posted many photos of the AKB48 members in yukatas, against the beautiful backdrop of Tokyo Bay.
Oshima seemed to be having fun as she shared a kiss with Minegishi Minami, appeared in her swimsuit and tried to forcibly kiss Kojima Haruna. Shinoda Mariko wrote “There are a lot of funny photos, but for Yuko’s sake, I will exercise some self-restraint. lol.”
Oshima also posted an entry about the fireworks party on her own blog that reads, “It was really fun taking a lot of photos with everyone and cheering at the fireworks. The fireworks viewed with everyone were really pretty.”
AKB48 will be holding 3-day concert at Tokyo Dome on August 24th to 26th, and Maeda is graduating from the group on the 27th. This is a precious moment for the girls who are sending off Maeda to her new start.
