Japan Pop Culture Festival is here now!! This is the continuation from last post about an event at Jakarta. We have a festival rundown and info regarding AKB48xJKT48.
The event is held on 25th, which was yesterday, for a concert of AKB48xJKT48 and for the festival event on 26th February which is today at Balai Kartini, Jakarta. The concert tickets are free and given in form of lottery, quiz, fans appreciation photo submissions and using iButterfly media app which only cover Jakarta region. There are around 600 tickets offered and it’s sold out in a nick of time. I was actually joined on the lottery but didn’t win any. Congrats to the winner, you deserve the seat!
The AKB48 Team will be consisting of,
Team A: Shizuka Oya, Haruka Katayama, Rino Sashihara, Minami Takahashi, Haruka Nakagawa, Ami Maeda
Team K: Moeno Nito, Reina Fujie, Sae Miyazawa
Team B: Amina Sato, Sumire Satou, Yuka Masuda
Team 4: Maria Abe, Suzuran Yamauchi
Kenkyuusei: Rina Kawae, Natsuki Kojima
Do you find your oshi-s there? 🙂 I do want to see Haruka and Sae but can’t do, Sasshi is pretty cute also. This is the latest info I got but the result may be changed. For JKT48, I think everyone will come up.

Also, AKB48xJKT48 was performed at an Indonesian TV program named Dahsyat yesterday morning. They sang Aitakatta! and performed really good even though the stage is too small for all of them. I saw 3 member of AKB48 consisting Minami Takahashi, Rina Kawae, Rino Sashihara if I’m right which you can see below here.
