AKIKHABAR – SOME MORE THAN JUST TOKYO TOURISM QUARTER (part 2)

SEE THE FAMOUS J-POP GROUP SPEECH
AKB48 is the name and location of a pop group of more than 140 girls. Their performance is a real attraction in the popular Tokyo area.

Initially, the group consisted of 48 girls (hence the name of the group), but later it increased to one and a half hundred. A feature of this team is that they tour, splitting into several groups. But the most interesting performances take place here.

Not only the group is interesting, but also the building, which is the headquarters of AKV48. It is divided into three parts: a theater in which performances are held, a shop and a bar.

You can buy tickets for the performance directly at the counter located on the street. You can also just drop by the bar without attending a performance. But be prepared for some strange feature of the bar – as a rule, there are a lot of women and elderly men who stare at the big screen with a group performance. This usually happens in sports cafes during football matches.
