August 26, 2019 - Update on Asakura Kiki's health condition
On August 26, it was reported that Tsubaki Factory member Asakura Kiki, who has been out from work since May to treat a lumbar disc herniation, has been showing signs of recovery. However, she has not yet reached the point of being able to resume activities.
She is unable to participate in the Tsubaki Factory Live Tour 2019 Aki: Gekkou, which starts on September 7, until further notice.
Asakura apologized on her blog for the concern she has caused those who have been looking forward to seeing her again including the members, staff, and all of her fans. Her recovery is taking longer than she expected, and each day has felt like a battle to her. She is currently focused on body building with the goal of a flexible body that can move painlessly, and she looks forward to the day she can meet everyone again.
