Yune Sakurai singing in a white dressUPDATES: Appearance times, plus Yune has an additional event on April 21st.

The April schedule for Yune Sakurai has been decided and she will appear every Saturday in the Girls Stargate Next idol event. Each event has many idols, groups and singers. Each plays a short set on stage then has a goods sales event outside, where you can usually get photographs (called a cheki チェキ) with the idols as well as other goods.

Girls Stargate Next Vol. 122 – April 7th 2018

This event in Yokohama features 15 idols/groups and runs from 10:00 until 13:50, with goods sales extending until 14:40.

When: Yune’s turn on stage is at 12:35 – 12:50, with goods sales straight afterwards (full schedule).

Where: O-site, Yokohama
Yokohama is easily reachable from Tokyo. The O-site venue is in a cinema building quite close to the main station. The entrance and stage is on the third floor (which might mean the second floor to you because in Japan the ground floor is called the first floor). Goods sales are held in the area outside the stage door.

Don’t confuse the venue entrance with the various cinema and bar entrances in the same building. Ask for “O-Site”.
