Morning Musume: Sayu, Mitsui, Riho Visit PON!

Sayu, Mitsui, Riho Visit PON!
Morning Musume members Michishige Sayumi, Mitsui Aika, and Sayashi Riho made a visit to the popular television show PON! To promote their new single “Maji desu ka Ska“which is on sale as I write this.

As part of the visit, the members talked about their childhood and pre-Morning Musume day's .During this segment Riho informed viewers that her last name is one of the rarest names in Japan, with only 12 registered families of which she is related to half of them. Riho is also related to professional baseball player Sayashi Tomoya. Riho also mentioned her goal was to meet all the registered Sayashi families.

The Sayashi family name for those who are wondering comes from a family of katana scabbard makers who lived near Himeji Castle.

Sayu talked about her athletic skills at age nine , her being on the “Most Hated" idol ranking, and Mitsui shares a dog story.

It sure feels strange to have members in Morning Musume like Riho who were not yet born, when their first single was released.
