- Not to be confused with the Uemura Akari's solo image Blu-ray Akari.
AKARI is is the first solo photobook by Uemura Akari. It was released by Wani Books on October 29, 2015.
"Reaching Oricon #1 for the first time 2 years after the debut and also releasing their first album this year, Hello! Project's group Juice=Juice stands in a year full of momentum. Now their youngest member, Uemura Akari, releases her long awaited first photobook.
For the first time in Okinawa, for the first time in a swimsuit. This is a book of first-times. Despite her mature body of a 16 year old, her innocent gestures and smiles and childishness leave the watcher defenseless. Full of girlyness but peculiarly boldness and delicacy, the first time is the best time.
The Uemura Akari of the moment, please witness!"
