The three members chatted with the hosts about their childhoods, and showed rare pictures of the members before they joined Morning Musume, including a picture of Sayashi performing in second grade, and Michishige’s aerobics performance at age 9. Sayashi, who is just beginning middle school this month, talked about how she looked up to Morning Musume since she was in kindergarten, and pointed out that she wasn’t born yet when their first single, “Morning Coffee” was released.
The hosts also mentioned that Sayashi’s last name is quite rare. The name comes from a family of katana scabbard makers who lived near Himeji Castle, and Sayashi’s uncle Sayashi Tomoya is a former outfielder for the Hiroshima Toyo Carp. Sayashi stated that there are only about 12 Sayashi families in all of Japan, and she already knows that 5 or 6 are related to her, so she’d like to meet the remaining few.
With Mitsui talking about her beloved dog, and Michishige talking about her “Most Hated” ranking, it’s a must-watch!
