AKB48 member Matsui Sakiko (24) attended the opening ceremony of “La Folle Journee au Japon” Music Festival at Marunouchi, Tokyo.

When asked why she declined participating for this year’s AKB48 General Election, Matsui explained that for this seventh year since entering AKB48, she wanted to look at things from the outside.  Also, she wants to be serious about her piano work and so she returned back to music college after taking a brief leave of absence.
