TV programs featuring Chihiro

Two television programs will feature Chihiro. If you have the chance to watch Japanese cable/satellite television, it will be nice to take a look.

  1. Viewsic: Sunday, February 22, 3:00 to 4:00 p.m., JST
  2. Space Shower TV: Friday, February 27, 10:15 to 11:00 p.m., JST

Chances are that either program will be a compilation of her promotional videos.


4th album pre-order

Amazon Japan is now accepting pre-orders for the fourth album due on March 17. The title is not decided yet.


No news is good news?

It has been a while since Chihiro disappeared from in front of us. But I'm taking an optimistic view. Since her motto is "Give tit for tat", let's hope that the new album will be a breathtaking one. All we need is patience.


4th album and video clip collection DVD

... will be released on March 17 (not February 25).
