Kashiwagi Yuki to Visit Taiwan & Hong Kong
Kashiwagi Yuki will be visiting Taiwan and Hong Kong at the end of February. She is traveling to both locations to take photos for an upcoming Photobook, and will host handshake events at the AKB48 Official Shops in both locations. This is her first time visiting Hong Kong.
The event in Taipei, Taiwan will take place on February 25th, on the 6th floor of Eslite Bookstore's Xin-Yi branch, while the event in Hong Kong will take place the day after on February 26th, in the event hall of Dragon Center, located in West Kowloon. Each event will host 1,500 fans.
Both AKB48 Official Shops will roll out a series of merchandise limited to this event. Goods are available in the Taiwan store on February 25th and 26th; and Hong Kong store from 26th to 27th.
Limited quantities were sold at an event in Taiwan over the past weekend. Fans who registered on the Official AKB48 Taiwan Facebook for the "Secret Sale", where limited edition merchandises were sold, were also able to purchase tickets to the handshake event. General sales will start on February 20th.
Handshake tickets for Hong Kong were sold on February 18th, but fans started lining up as early as 4PM the day before. Here is a photo of the Hong Kong handshake ticket:
