Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

sakura in orange kimono

I know what you are thinking: Finally, someone looks good in an orange outfit!

Sakura Miyawaki (宮脇 咲良 Miyawaki Sakurais a rising star in the AKB48 Family. The lovable young idol is a member of HKT48, and is a fan favorite. She ranked SEVENTH in the last AKB Senbatsu Election, surpassing many of AKB’s longtime stars. This former child actress is a natural showman (girl).  Of course she is super cute in all of her idol outfits, but I especially love this photo card set of her wearing my favorite color!

Fans often comment on her “big ears” — although unfortunately, only one can be seen in this series. She lists her “special skills” as drawing, and being able to sleep anywhere. That is good because I see this teen idol working a lot more for the group. She will be in-demand for more and bigger roles.  See Stage48 website linked here for more Sakura-tan trivia!

Sakura may also be the hope for all humanity, but that is getting a little off topic …

Sakura-tan, Could you please “orange” another great kimono shoot?

I am a BIG FAN … get it?

For more Sakura photo cards see my Sakura Miyawaki board on Pinterest linked here.

Starlight: We can now see the light from Star GJ 3379  on the month Sakura was born in Kagoshima Prefecture. GJ 3379 is a red dwarf star in the Orion constellation.  GJ 3379 is the closest star to Earth of all those stars located within Orion. It is a “flare star” which is appropriate for this young idol!

  1. She is cute, although after reading your post I cannot help but focus on her ears.

  2. Her uchiwa is so adorable here and what a gorgeous photo set!! Sakura wears orange wonderfully I so agree, love her blossomed yukata! It’s astonishing how much some of the girls photo sets can fetch on auction sites =O. For now I pretty much settle for whichever randomly inserted member photos I receive with their single and album releases but there was a time when I would have bidding battles on auctions and during the height of Ongaku Gatas I spent a tiny fortune on quite a few Manoeri sets =P.
