Our favorite Japanese idol group AKB48 is all over the place recently. With their newest single, Kaze wa Fuiteiru (風は吹いている) coming out October 26th, marketing of the group has been fast and furious.
Most recently AKB48 has opened up an official shop in Akihabara, “AKB48 CAFÉ & SHOP AKIHABARA.” The café will feature a limited-time-only menu planned by the members of AKB48. One item of interest on the menu is the takeout-only pie daifuku. “It is an original type of sweet, Akihabara’s newest specialty product,” according to member Mayu Watanabe.
AKB48 are also now on the small-screen promoting Nintendo’s Just Dance Wii. A seemingly fun commercial for a seemingly fun game.
