    I don't know if this goes here or not, but I passed by a shop in Akihabara while I was there this past week called Liberty Akihabara and the third floor specialized in idol photos, mostly AKB and Sakamichi. I decided to go on a whim, and while browsing through the store, I happened to find the Nogizaka46 Artworks book in a case. I believe this is the book that was being pre-sold while the museum was up and running.

    I had no idea what the contents of the book were, but I didn't want to pass up on buying it, so I did. It's pretty much the museum in book form. Everything you saw in the museum is pretty much featured in this book. I don't remember what the asking price was when orders were being taken, but this is definitely worth the ¥3500 that I paid.

    Nice find! The contents are pretty good, right? Can't really remember how much it was, 2000 price range I think, so that was a good price you got there!

    Yeah, I think the best parts of the book were the things you weren't allowed to take pictures of in the museum, such as the preliminary logo designs and the MV storyboards and such. I didn't do a page count, but it looks like it's at least 150-200 pages.

    I'm really glad I stopped by that shop. Even with all the other 48/46 merch I bought on my trip, this is probably the best thing I got.

    Anyone plan on going to the handshake event in Nagoya on Dec. 15th?
    I happen to be in Japan at that time so I'm going to make the trip to Nagoya for my first (and possibly only) handshake event.
    It would be cool to meet up with other people so I'm not alone.

    The national handshake event is on the 14th, the individual handshake is on the 15th.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to make the national as I won't be arriving in Japan until the evening of the 14th. Thank you for the invite, though. :blush:

    You can check their websites.

    The handshake event was amazing. Also a bit awkward but still great.

    Amazing being able to see them up close and meet. Awkward because I don't speak Japanese and can't communicate with them.

    When you first turn the corner and see them, it's really crazy. It's really amazing seeing them, especially as a foreign fan when you really only see them on video. The awkwardness comes because when I first meet them my mind goes blank and I just want to take in the fact that they're right in front of me. Then when I've come back to reality and remembered the Japanese thing I memorized, the usher is already pushing me out. I really underestimated how short it is.

    The three girls I wanted to meet most were Kakki, Zukki, and Ayamen. With Kakki and Zukki it really felt like the blink of an eye. I swear the time on those two were shorter than the other ones. But Kakki really acted like she was happy to see me and was sad to see me leave which was nice. Of these three, Ayamen was the only one I had two tickets for and the second time around I was actually able to say "I came to Japan to meet you" in Japanese and replied with a "Hontou ni" and it was really cute. I actually had two Zukki tickets, one in the first time slot and one in the third time slot, but we had trouble getting to the Shinkansen in time so I missed the entire first time slot. I also had Kiichan tickets at that time who I also really wanted to meet which was disappointing.

    Since I had Zukki and Kiichan tickets in the first time slot, Zukki and Ayamen tickets in the third time slot, and a Kakki ticket in the last time slot, and seeing Zukki, Kakki and Ayamen is a must I figured since I was going to be there all day, I wanted to bid on some other girls too to fill in the time so I wasn't just waiting around al l day. Of all the girls, Hazuki seemed to be the most prepared to meet a non-Japanese speaking foreigner. She asked me (in English) where I was from. When I told her I was from America. She asked if I was from New York (I replied with where I was actually from). I had three Renacchi tickets and decided to use them all at once which was probably a mistake. Edit: By mistake, I mean using more than one ticket to the first time you meet a member, not that meeting Renacchi was a mistake. Since if you get nervous and your mind goes blank then a slightly awkward 5 seconds becomes a very awkward 15 or so seconds. I also met Seira which was nice. I did use two tickets and was able to get a few words in. The last member I met was Sakura. Like Kakki, Ayamen, and Zukki my mind went blank when I first met her. But this time instead of a blink an eye, it felt longer, like an awkward silence. But it was the end of the day and I was pretty tired. And jet lagged.

    One thing that annoyed me, when I got my tickets in the mail I noticed I didn't get any of the Yuri or Rei tickets I won. When I checked I saw I had made the mistake of forgetting to pay for them (I think I forgot to click the last confirmation button) and then when I tried to bid again it said they were both sold out for that day. And that's what annoyed me as Yuri's lane seemed mostly empty and I would have gladly bought several tickets for her. My fault though I guess

    In any case I said this might be my only handshake event but I don't think it will be. I feel the burning need to redeem myself and leave a better impression. I just need to get back to Japan again next year somehow...

    Guys, if I want to handshake with Kotoko before she graduates, what'll be my best way to meet her? Buy how many CDs? Go for the national or individual one?

    I think she will not be participating in the 25th IHS/NHS anymore, if I'm not mistaken her Nogi activities is only until end of March 2020?
    No NHS schedule yet, for IHS here http://www.nogizaka46.com/event/20200127.php
