The 60th year of Philippines-Japan Friendship was indeed a milestone event for the two countries as both have had a close and remarkable cultural relationship.  Helping celebrate this landmark occasion were members of Japan’s premiere idol group, AKB 48, represented by their Team 8, with a program organized by the Embassy of Japan with co-organizer Hallohallo Entertainment Inc. The group had flown all the way from Japan to perform live in front of their eager Filipino fans for the second time since last year’s Cool Japan event (for our coverages, click here for Day 1 and click here for Day 2).  A press conference for them was held just before their scheduled performance at the Market!Market! Activity Center.  Our Photographer and Correspondent Ianah was there for arkadymac.com’s coverage as officialomedia partner for the event.

With her spectacular concert still fresh and alive in our minds, we happily share exclusive and official photos from last weekend’s LiSA – Another Great Day in Manila Concert from cosplay.ph.  It was an affair to remember as LiSA performed her best hits in front of an eager and enthusiastic Filipino audience.  She candidly admitted she was afraid that nobody knew about her in the Philippines, but when LiSA got to see firsthand the almost-full Samsung Hall at SM Aura, she knew she was pleasantly wrong as hundreds of fans and supporters turned up to watch her perform at her first-ever concert in Manila.
