TV Show follows International fans as they go on AKB48 pilgrimage in Japan

26 Aug

A show called “You wa Nani shi ni Nihon he?” (Why did you come to Japan?) recently documented some foreign friends’ trip in Japan as they traveled to different places to indulge in some idol-love.

Wayne(England) and Chris(Germany) arrived in Japan in May 2014 with aims to attend the AKB48 two-shot(photo) event and general elections. The production crew followed them to Akihabara were they bought photocards of AKB48 members and became distracted by anime goods. The guys also bought multiple copies of “Labrador Retriever” CDs so they could vote for their Oshimens. The guys were fanatic enough to camp outside the AKB48 official cafe & shop whilst the preliminary results was being announced.

The highlight of this show was probably the photo event where the guys got to meet their Oshimens in person. Check out their reactions in the video above!
