Through their recent TV appearance and during their talk segments in their concerts at Niigata (181102-04), Tohoshinki have shared with their fans some of their favourite food products from Niigata. Naturally, this caused a huge interest amongst Japanese fans who wanted to get their hands on them and try them out. It also resulted in long lines in front of stores and even sold out products, which is great for the locals ^^* (just like the Fukui’s Raputo-kun and Sapporo’s Classic beer, etc~)
For Niigata, the products are: Niigata rice (Shinnosuke brand introduced via NTV’s “Gyoretsuno Dekiru Horitsu Sodanjo”), Niigata mascot Lerch-san dolls (premium seat video). In addition to those introduced via the talks in the concerts (1, 2): Onigiri (rice ball) at Niigata station, Yasuda yougurt (store in Niigata station), the curry (バスセンターのカレー) from Bandai City Bus Center’s Curry store, and Niigata rice wine!
Below is a compilation from different days on this phenomenon!
