You know, I’ve been a fan of Sasaki Rikako since a bit before her days as a Hello! Project trainee. Her story as a refugee of the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and floods is staggering. The story becomes more insane when you find out Rikako became an idol (in the local group SCK Girls) because her parents wanted singing and dancing to cheer her up from the lose of her family’s house and fishery.
Well, none of her rise to fame wouldn’t be possible if she wasn’t so darn cute.

All of these previews are from my copy of her debut photobook, “Rikako”. I know better scans exist out there, but I wanted to share my personal things.
Please consider buying Sasaki Rikako’s photobook “Rikako”. You can buy a copy at CD JAPAN
