Shoko Nakagawa's first live performance after changing her name, with “apple hair” in honor of Aomori
Talent Shoko Nakagawa held a release event for her new song ``65535'' at the commercial complex ``Hiroro'' (Ekimae-cho, Hirosaki City) on November 26th.
Nakagawa's new song released on November 1st. The release event was held in five locations across the country, with Hirosaki being the final location. Mr. Nakagawa called the new song a ``surume song'' and said, ``I hope you enjoy it with the electronic sound of Pico Pico.''
Mr. Nakagawa visited Hirosaki for the first time. I reported live that I ate apple pie, squid mince, and sujiko natto in the dressing room. Squid mince is a local dish made from leftover squid, and Nakagawa highly praised it, saying, ``The person who made it is a genius.''
Ms. Nakagawa, who said she had an ``apple hair'' hairstyle inspired by the shape of an apple, said, ``I thought it would be cold in Aomori and wore warm clothes, but there was a heat at the venue, so I might remember that ``Aomori was hot.'' I can't do it," he said, drawing laughter from the audience.
In addition to the new song, they performed their representative song ``Sorairo Days'' and the new song's coupling song ``Shoko Nakagawa.'' Nakagawa attracted public attention on the 23rd of this month when she announced that she had been approved by the family court to change her name from ``Shouko'' to ``Shoko.'' The live performance in Hirosaki was the first event since announcing the name change, and Nakagawa said with a smile, ``I'm happy to be called Shoko,'' which I've grown up with with everyone.''
After the concert, Nakagawa spent nearly two hours talking with fans and signing autographs. "I was able to fulfill my dream of performing live in Aomori," he concluded.
