|I, Yanagawa Nanami|
in March of next year,
On 11/5 it will have been 3 years since I joined Hello! Project as a member of Country Girls.
These 3 years
During that, this past year
Being an idol has been a dream of mine since I was little.
Although it’s a miracle just that my dream came to be,
Especially because of that, I’ve thought lots and lots
First of all
I’m sorry for surprising you
Though my time as an idol is limited,
And more than anything,
For that sake as well
From now on
Country Girls / Juice=Juice Yanagawa Nanami
