Hinatazaka46 (日向坂46) is a Japanese idol group and the 4th group of the Sakamichi Series. They were formerly known as Hiragana Keyakizaka46, a sub-group within Keyakizaka46, until they announced their independence and became a new group on February 11, 2019.


  • The group name comes from Hyugazaka Street in Mita, Minato-ku, Tokyo. Hinatazaka is an alternate reading of the kanji in Hyugazaka (日向坂).
  • Fans of the group are called Ohisama. The meaning behind this name is that a sunny place (日向 Hinata) cannot exist without sunshine (おひさま Ohisama), just as Hinatazaka46 cannot exist without its fans.
  • Since June 5, 2018 their current group captain is Sasaki Kumi.
  • The member's huddle call said before live performances is as follows:

Combi Names
Combi Name Members Name Explanation
Daikanyama Sisters (代官山姉妹 Daikanyama Shimai) Ushio Sarina and Kanemura Miku Daikanyama is an upscale area of Shibuya. Their concept is "sisters having afternoon tea at a fashionable Daikanyama cafe". The two are known for having somewhat serious but kind personalities, as well as an air of elegance.
Can Friends (キャン友 Kyan Tomo) Ushio Sarina and Iguchi Mao (Graduated) From English "can", as in "we can do it!". The two were friends since the early days of Hiragana Keyakizaka46, and said that together they can do anything.
French Bread (フランスパン Furansu Pan) Kakizaki Memi (Graduated) and Sasaki Mirei "French" was used to represent Memi, who aspired to be "like a French doll". "Bread" was taken from Mirei's nickname, Miipan (pan meaning "bread" in Japanese). The duo performed the song Sanrinsha ni Noritai on Hiragana Keyakizaka46's 1st Album.
Memifii (めみふぃ Memifii) Kakizaki Memi (Graduated) and Takase Mana Combination of members' individual nicknames.
Kagepan (かげぱん Kagepan) Kageyama Yuka (Graduated) and Sasaki Mirei Combination of members' individual nicknames.
Bijiness (びじねす Bijiness) Kageyama Yuka (Graduated) and Miyata Manamo (Graduated) A pun on bijin, meaning beautiful person", and "business". This comes from a joke that the two are only friends for "business reasons", as they are both Hinatazaka members with similar traits of loving books and being academically gifted.
Kizunas (きずなーず Kizunaazu) Kato Shiho, Sasaki Mirei, and Saito Kyoko (Graduated) From kizuna, meaning "bonds". All three are close friends and have expressed a strong sense of duty to Hinatazaka46 as 1st Generation members. The name was created by Mirei in March 2019.

Respect Three (リスペクトスリー Risupecuto Surii') Kato Shiho, Watanabe Miho (Graduated), Kamimura Hinano Both Miho and Hinano have stated they respect Shiho as their senior, and eventually, the three created a combi with this concept.

Durian Milk (ドリアンミルク Dorian Miruku) Sasaki Kumi and Tomita Suzuka Inspired by Strawberry Milk above. Suzuka wanted to create a similar duo name, so she thought of "Suzudurian" for herself to combine with "Kumilk".
