___ Yamashita Shizuki _ (2023.09.20)









I’m 18 years old Yamashita Shizuki
from Kyoto









The other day, the formation for 7th single “Shonin Yokkyu” was announced




I have been selected to be a senbatsu member for this single







First of all,

To all of you who always support me

Truly, thank you very much
It is undoubtedly thanks to you I can be where I am now

I am truly grateful






I felt many different emotions when my name was called


Neither myself then nor myself now know which is the correct and true emotion.


Anxiety and worry were really a big part of what I felt.




There were many things going through my mind, such as whether or not this is the right place for me to be in…

I’m sorry if I might have seemed a little down





While this is my first title song participation, for the seniors, it’s the very important 7th single


I felt that there was no choice but to give it my all to face what was in front of me


And I want to make this a period where I can contribute to the group
I want to make this a period where I can grow as an individual








Ever since I joined Sakurazaka46, I kept saying “I want to be stronger” in various places



The reason I want to become stronger is because of a certain person’s words. But that time, rather than thinking “I want to be stronger”, I thought that “I must become stronger”.

“I must become stronger, I can’t just stay here”
That’s how I felt





The words that my mother said to be that time have always remained in my head.




“Each person has their own strength, Shizuki has her own strength so there is no need to force yourself to become stronger. Each person has their own strength.”



It saved my heart.





And then, as I do my activities, I compare myself to my surroundings

When I feel like I have nothing,



all of you were always there with your warm smiles and love for me, which made it possible for me to enjoy my activities


Up until now, I have always been one of the fans, but now that I am an idol, I feel, “I really can’t do it without all of your words…”

You always said, “You cheered me up!”, but the same goes for me, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for all of you.



Truly, thank you very much as always







There may be times in the future when I will show my weak sides, but I will absorb many things from my seniors, genmates, and surroundings during this single period and do my best to grow and contribute to the group that is Sakurazaka46… I hope you will warmly watch over me…






Please continue to support me from now on












Sorry that it has become a long one…



Well then, there is a lot of news to announce, please do give it a look ‪(っ ॑꒳ ॑c)

And on B.L.T November edition that is on sale 28th September

I will be featured together with 3rd generation members 🌸



We received a big feature on the cover and main article with 30 pages~
We had a very fun photoshoot and a ton of interviews again this time, so please look forward to it! ♪






And then, 3rd generation members finally appeared in UniAir~


How is it? Have you gotten my card?


I was able to see Airi filming her signing video~ 🪄 Ain’t that nice~
Please allow me to talk about it again in the future






To be honest, there are still a lot of things that I want to talk about, but since this blog has becoming a long one I’ll talk about it on my next blog~


In the next blog, I will talk about Shinsekai– which I was finally able to visit– and answering questions from letters that I received~






Thank you very much for reading until the end






Next is Rika~
Rika may look squishy, but actually, she is one of the members who has a lot of physical strength

I’m sure it must be because she did 🏀 before~
What a gap, isn’t it~ 👶🏻





Bye by~e













BeSHItie with the bear (A little pun)
