A new event “Showa Idol Archives” will be launching on September 26th!  This is an event to sharing memories of old-good idols’ by reading magazines, listening music, and talking about goods. The participants are welcomed to bring goods and talk about it!

For the first event, one of the legendary Showa idols “Candies” will be featured. (The members are not coming!) Bring your Candies’ items such as magazines, books, tour leaflets, records, and talk about their attractions listening to their music!


Information about Showa idols cannot be found on internet, and the fans now have only a vague memory of it…
So, it’s time to discuss about it and complete our memories so that we won’t forget! We mainly feature 70s and 80s (sometimes 90s) idols.
