  • TEMPURA KIDZ Members Announce Departure From Group After Their Concert in March

    22.February.2021 | MUSIC

    Four-member dance and vocal unit TEMPURA KIDZ announced on their official website on Thursday (February 18) that YU-KA, AO, and P→★ will depart from the group following their concert at Shibuya Veats on March 28, 2021.

     

    TEMPURA KIDZ began their career as backup dancers for Japan’s queen of pop Kyary Pamyu Pamyu where they were known as the “Kyary Kids.” The original five-member line-up of YU-KA, AO, P→★, KARIN, and NaNaHo made their major debut in 2013. At the young ages of just 15, the group took their unmatched, high-energy dance performances across Japan and overseas. The big stage was ahead of them as they embarked on a world tour to perform in 17 cities throughout 13 countries, beginning with a performance at the Thai music festival TOFU MUSIC FES 2014 where they performed alongside the acclaimed K-pop artists 2NE1 and GOT7.

     

    TEMPURA KIDZ at TOFU MUSIC FES 2014

    TEMPURA KIDZ also performed at the world’s largest indoor arena, Philippine Arena, in Manila, Philippines for the 2015 New Year’s countdown event. In the performer line-up, TEMPURA KIDZ were just one act behind Chris Brown.

     

    TEMPURA KIDZ at Philippine Arena in 2015

    TEMPURA KIDZ have taken their exceptional dance skills around the world where they have hosted dance workshops to children at schools. One was hosted in Payatas in the Philippines as part of an Official Development Assistance (ODA) effort and was filmed to be shown on TV.

     

    Over the course of their career, TEMPURA KIDZ have also lent their creative choreography to countless artists as well as for commercials and TV shows. In 2019, they performed their iconic “Puputto Fumutto Kaiketsu Dance” on Kōhaku Uta Gassen, an annual New Year’s Eve television special in Japan. The dance was created by the group for the animation series Butt Detective.

     

    In 2018, group member NaNaHo graduated for the group, leaving TEMPURA KIDZ with just four members: YU-KA , AO, P→★, and KARIN. However, YU-KA , AO, and P→★ will now be graduating from the group at their solo concert together at Shibuya Veats on March 28, 2021 to focus on their own individual careers.

     

    YU-KA aims to become a performer on many different levels and so wants to focus on enhancing her current skill. AO wants to become an actress, and P→★ wants to challenge himself to many new things such as being a DJ, model, and performer to arm himself with a talented skill set. The remaining member KARIN will announce her plans in the near future.

    This March will be the final time that the four members stand on stage together as TEMPURA KIDZ. Tickets went on sale on Thursday (February 18), including special tickets that include signings from the members and an invitation to their rehearsal.

     

    Comment From TEMPURA KIDZ

    “We want to convey our utmost gratitude to you all for supporting us for so long. On March 28, at our solo concert, YU-KA, AO, and P→★ will graduate from TEMPURA KIDZ. Each member has decided to pursue their own paths. This of course means a big change for TEMPURA KIDZ, but all four of us will go all out to put on a hugely successful final show for you that captures out past 8 years together. Truly, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you. And remember, this isn’t the end—we’re working super hard to get off to a new start, so we ask you kindly for your continued support.”

  • Stay Home With TEMPURA KIDZ: Polish Your Skills And Look to the Future During the Lockdown

    16.April.2020 | FEATURES

    Here at MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON, we post news and information about Japan in six languages. Our aim is to deliver a variety of content related to Japan for those who love and enjoy Japanese culture.

     

    Right now, people across the globe are in self-isolation as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The same goes for Japan too, so we’ve taken this opportunity to create a new series on the website to show how we’re spending time at home here in Japan. The future is yet uncertain, and we hope for normality to return for all of us soon. We created a new articles series called Stay Home with which we hope to take your mind off the situation, even for just a little bit, to help you feel calmer. It might give you some tips on what you can do while spending time at home.

     

    Today, we are joined by all four members of Japanese dance and vocal group TEMPURA KIDZ who have shared with us what they have been doing at home recently.

     

    Stay Home With AO

    1: Watching movies

    I’ve been sipping on nice hot drinks while cosied up watching movies. One that I want to recommend that makes me cry is The Green Mile. For comedy is would be A Story of Yonosuke!

     

    2: Reading

    Reading at home! I don’t make a lot of progress with reading, but I can concentrate better setting time aside to read at home alone rather than when I usually would on trains or in my spare time. So I’ve developed the ability to read a lot quicker now! I want to use this time to read lots and lots!

     

    What’s your secret to spending time at home?

    It’s all about putting the time in right now! I usually don’t get this kind of time to enjoy chilling at home, so I’m consuming lots of media like movies, dramas, anime, and books. I think it’s great time spent to power up my power as a human, by laughing and crying while increasing my knowledge and sensibility!

    With more time spent at home because of the lockdown period, you might feel a sense of loneliness or anxiety, but it’s important to increase your immunity, even a little, and make your mind and body strong! I hear that tears and laughter are a way of de-stressing and upping your immunity. Let’s immerse ourselves in some kind of media and laugh and cry so we can eliminate stress, increase our immunity, and level ourselves up.

    1: Feeling better with candied fruit!

    I’m lifting my mood at home by making candied fruit! It’s super simple, you just need fruit, sugar, and water.

    Though I’m at home indoors, it makes me feel like I’m at a stall at a Japanese festival, so it makes me happy!

     

    It’s really easy to do, so why not give it a go yourself?

     

    What’s your secret to spending time at home?

    If you use your time at home wisely to try out things you normally don’t have time for you’re bound to discover something new. I think that’s important.

    Stay Home With YU-KA

    1: Dancing on TikTok at home!

    I started using TikTok just recently. Since the lockdown means being at home everyday, I’m posting dance videos everyday as part of my daily routine!

     

    They’re super easy to make and post, I think it’s the best kind of content to enjoy with everyone. Plus, you feel refreshed after moving your body about, and it lifts your mood!

     

    2: I can’t meet with the other members, but…

    I’m also doing duet dances in my videos too! When the lockdown finally ends and I get to meet with everyone again, my happiness won’t feel incomplete anymore.

     

    Doing this means you can stay connected with people even if you’re at home. It made me realise again what a convenient time we live in. I’m posting everyday, so I hope it kills a bit of time for everyone at home!

    What’s your secret to spending time at home?

    This period we’re in now might actually be a great opportunity to do those things you’ve been neglecting everyday, or to challenge yourself to something new! You might also realise something you didn’t before because of this very situation. It’s made me reconsider the peaceful life I took for granted, so let’s think of it as a plus because of the good time we’ve been granted!

    1: Making music and editing YouTube videos

    I’m set on making music and editing YouTube videos, and other things too. I’m using my time at home to do the things I normally wouldn’t be able to because it takes time. I’m also absorbing myself in a lot of research and making things. Keeping myself busy by looking up the things I love relieves my stress and makes me feel great.

     

    What’s your secret to spending time at home?

    Feeling positive trying out things you normally can’t!
