Nice to meet you. I’m Murai Yu (2023.03.15)

Hello, everyone

Thank you very much for opening this blog. Continuing from Itoha (Mukai Itoha), it’s my turn today.

I’m Sakurazaka46’s 3rd generation member from Tokyo,
18 years old Murai Yu.


Please treat me kindly from now on!


First, allow me to give a simple introduction of myself !☺︎


Murai Yu


・ Birthday
18th August 2004


・ Personality
Going at my own pace, calm, indecisive

I usually act and think slowly at my own pace.
I am also indecisive, so when I go shopping for clothes and such, I can’t decide what to get, and I always wander around the place…!


・Animal I’m similar with

I was thinking I look like a rabbit because I’m good at jumping and have round eyes.

I’ll jump to where you all are 🐇➰♡



I’d be happy if you could come to know me better from now on! ☺︎


I gave it my best to draw the rabbit ears~ ✍🏻🐰
I don’t have a good sense when it comes to drawing so I had difficulty with it… lol




⚪️About the Omotenashikai ⚪️


Thank you very much to everyone who came to Omotenashikai, who watched it through the online stream!

Did you have fun~? 👀💭

The time I spent together with everyone in Omotenashikai made me truly so happy, like I’ve never felt before 😌🤍 It was dream-like.


We did the Sakurazaka group cheer together on the first day of Omotenashikai, before the start of the show.
I heard the cheers of the Buddies for the first time there, and it made me tremble with goosebumps and my tears suddenly started to fall.
It was the first time I was able to directly feel the people who are supporting us, and I was filled with both happy and hard-to-believe feelings.


And since Omotenashikai was held right after my reveal, I was filled with anxiousness, but there were people with my towel, penlight colors, or my picture cards.
Even now, when I remember it, it makes me happy and full of smiles from savoring it. Truly, thank you very much. ♡

I already talked about it when we were expressing our determination, but I hope to become someone who can be beside those who are supporting me at any times and kindly comfort them.
And from now on, I’d like to keep running forward with you all that I love!



In the mini live, I was selected to be the center of the first song, “Nobody’s fault”.

Just as seen in the documentary, I am not that good at expressing my emotions in my performance. I worried a lot about how can I convey the world-view of the song and my emotions through my expressions or eyes.

I performed this “Nobody’s fault” with my strong resolutions and determination towards joining Sakurazaka46.


although “the difference between a dancer and an idol”

is something that is very difficult and has no clear answer, I thought about it a lot in my own way.

Did I manage to convey my feelings to you as an idol in the “Nobody’s fault” performance…?


Before “Nobody’s fault”, I was so nervous while waiting under the stage as the Overture was being played that I thought my heart was going to beat right out of my chest. Nagi (Kojima Nagisa) who saw this gave me a hard hit on my back.
And in that moment, my nervousness flew away, and I was all fired up with the feeling of “Let’s do this!”.
I think I’m going to continue asking the members to hit me on my back before a performance from now on! ( •̀ •́ )୨



And then…


Soon, I will be having my first meet & greet!!
I truly, truly look forward to it, recently meet & greet is all I can think about 🙊🫶🏻
I can’t wait to chat with you 🤍


And then…


I just heard from the manager that the letters that you sent have arrived.

Truly, thank you very much.
I’m very, very happy 😭🫶🏻

I will read each one of your letters slowly and carefully ☺︎





This is a selfie I took when I went out with Rika (Ishimori Rika) and Riko (Endo Riko) the other day!
The three of us went to a karaoke place and sang “Natsu no Chikamichi” together~

On this day I tried tying my hair up and putting on fake glasses. I looked a bit different from usual and more mature 👩🏻🥂


Thank you very much for reading until this far!
I will be ending it here today…!

I hope that you can read my next blog as well!
₍ᐢ‥ᐢ₎ ♡


Tomorrow will be Miu (Murayama Miu)’s turn!

She has a big-sisterly side of her where she often does make-up and curls the hair of 3rd gen members 🙊♡

I look forward to reading Miu’s blog tomorrow! ᕷ
