Nogizaka46 first generation member Kawago Hina has announced her graduation from the group.
On her official blog, Kawago reflected on her activities in Nogizaka46 since she was 13 years old. She explained, "There is a part of me that feels that I shouldn't rush because I'm still 20 years old. However, rather than spending my time at ease here, I wanted to work hastily work with no time to spare. I want to start over and work frantically. That's why I decided to graduate from Nogizaka46."
Kawago's activities in Nogizaka46 will end on December 20 after the group's concert at Musashino no Mori Sogo Sports Plaza in Tokyo.
