KonNagi~! Kojima Nagisa from Sakurazaka46 3rd-gen here.
📸~ With a peace sign from Mio (Matono Mio) ~
This was taken when we were fooling around before the concert starts.
🌷We returned to Pia Arena MM
It has been 3 days already,,,
I’m happy that somewhat I could see your faces more clearly this time~
There are so many people bringing my oshimen towel as well, it made me excited!
Thank you so much😭
Since you all took the trouble to bring the towels, I kind of hoping that we’ll have a song in which we can put them into action,,,
The towels are different from the fans (Uchiwa). It’s kind of there is no way to tell that I saw them, but I always wanted to do something about it,,,
Are there any good ideas~💭💭
I’ve always been thinking about what to do about it, so on the tour this time maybe I should try to gave a heart sign when I found one🎶
I’m always looking for the Pastel Blue x Orange colored penlights as well. No matter where you are waving them at, I will found them~😏
For sketchbooks and fans, it will be easier to see them should you raise them up close to the height of your chest and give a bit of tilt!
I guess there are instances when the venue is too dark or when the people in front of you is tall, such that it is hard to show them to us. That must be quite a bitter experience,,,
If you hold them upfront, it’s hard to read the letters at the bottom, so I think it’ll be easier to read if you hold them slightly tilted toward yourself!
Maybe you could try those tips.
Oh! We also announced this at the end of the first concert in Kanagawa,,,
The 6th Single “Start over!” will be released on June 28th, 2023!
There will be more information coming out from now on, so look forward to it!

I do look forward to meeting those who came last time, but I wonder if there are others who take a liking to me recently?
Let’s have a chat, even if it’s just for a brief moment!
The Meet & Greet last time was really fun.
Many people conveyed their love, many people wanted to get to know me better, and there are also people who did funny things and make me laugh,,,
I guess those who have talked a lot with me kind of knowing my personality already~
Maybe it’s kind of surprising, but I often make retorts like “Oi!” lol (I’m not angry though)
This time, I’m also looking forward to talk with you all~
For those who couldn’t make it for the schedules this time, it is OK. We will meet some other time!
🌷I appeared in the Up-To-Boy magazine👀
Several days ago the pictures have been released. Did you see them?
There was a photoshoot at a park that day. Coincidentally, I met with kids around the age of nursery / kindergarten who went out for a picnic with their mothers,,
So the photoshoot went on while being watched by the children who were running around innocently. They were so cute~
After the photoshoot was over, the mothers were saying “Good luck!”, and it made me so happy. The children were saying bye-bye and waving their hands too. It was such a nice photoshoot.
By the way, picnic or flower-viewing…? I don’t have much recollection about it, but I want to do it some day!
📸Me in my roomwear.
My usual roomwear is the school’s jersey, so this was quite a fresh experience.
If only my roomwear can be these kind of cute clothings lol
I was surprised to seeing myself with a brown hair in the picture where I was laying down in a red one-piece dress (I hope you noticed!)
Once again, I feel like brown hair doesn’t suit me🥲
Oh, I look cute in the uniform, don’t I?😎
Back in middle-school and high-school, I had bow-tie for the uniform, so it felt fresh to wear the string-like ribbon this time~
For those who haven’t seen them, please check it out~
Q : It snows a lot in Nagano, but can Nagi-chan do skiing or snowboarding?
Back in the elementary school, there was a skiing class, so I had practice~
I think everyone in Nagano can do it?
In general, there are classes for newbies in the ski resorts, but back then I was really shy to skiing around with people I don’t know, so I had a lot of practice with my father.
In the beginning, it was hard for me to stop in the middle of a slope, that I would crash to my father a lot of times,, sorry Papa,,
I’ve never tried snowboarding~
I kind of want to try it, but the fear holds me back💦
I’m all for the sleighs.
Q : I wanna see your puffy face (taking picture with puffing the cheeks on purpose)!
I don’t have any pictures,, sorry, I’ll take it some other time
Q : I wanna see you in braids
I’m bad with arranging my hair😭
I’ve never done it in my life…
Even doing ponytail is hard for me
Aa, back then Miu (Murayama Miu) braided my hair but I forgot to take a picture, uuuhhh
Q : Can you think of an emoji (that describes you)?
What about “🐥”?
Many people, the 3rd gens, the make-up artists, or the people during Meet & Greet said that I look like a baby chick, lol!
Apart from baby chick, some also said that I look like Torchic or Piplup (from Pokemon)
Maybe the shape of my lips do resemble those~? lol
What emoji do you think is good~?
Q : Tell me a secret info about Rika!
Recently, Rika was crying from watching the first episode of an anime.
She often reads a book during the break time, but it seems like she’s not so good with Japanese literature lol
People who read books seem to be good with the modern Japanese language (referring to language after the Meiji period), but I think Rika, and also probably Shii (Yamashita Shizuki) (Shii also reads a lot) are not that good with it lol
I was surprised when I asked Shii about her scores for the Japanese literature subject lol
If you are interested, please ask her next time.
Maybe she will tell you about it?
By the way, around my 2nd year in the middle school (?) somewhere in the winter, I took the spot for worst 3 students in the mock exam for Japanese literature! That’s how bad my reading and comprehension were😭
Sometimes there are talks about what subjects we were good at back in the school. Reina and Yuzu said they were good with Japanese literature. Isn’t that amazing?
By the way, I like mathematics and chemistry.
That said, I didn’t get good scores lol
I kind of gave up midway at the Math-3.
I still like it until the Math-2 and Math-B level though.
[T/N: In Japanese high schools, the math class are split into levels 1, A, 2, B, 3]
I didn’t like chemistry at first, but during my1st year in the high school, I met a teacher who had such a genius way of teaching that I became to like it very much!
Some times things like that just happen, right?
I have nothing but gratitude for that teacher,,,
Summer is coming soon~ so with that
I’m preparing my song playlist for the summer!!
But sometimes you can’t help but to listen to the winter songs even though it’s hot, right!?
I wonder what are you listening to~
Let me know
I’m trying to answer the questions that I got from Meet & Greet and fan letters. Let me know if you want to know about other things~👍🏻
I’m always having fun reading them
Thank you for the questions!
Bye-bye!!! Let’s meet again soon in Osaka👍🏻
Next up is Airi
Airi likes to cling on many people.
When she comes to me her reaction is so funny, but there are times when I’m also giving her a cold shoulder (sorry Airi). But she also clings to many other people~
It’s always comforting to see her like that.
She often forgets about her belongings👍🏻
