Watanabe Miho apologizes in public
Hinatazaka46 member Watanabe Miho apologized to fans and residents of Nagasaki and Kagoshima Prefectures in her blog of 22 February 2020 for her performance in the Japanese quiz show “Are you smarter than a fifth grader?” The two 20-year-old Hinatazaka46 members Sasaki Mirei and Watanabe Miho had been invited to the quiz show together and failed directly after a few minutes at the first question. They were supposed to recognize Nagasaki Prefecture from the silhouette, but confused it with Kagoshima. Watanabe Miho is very embarrassed about their performance and it depresses her a lot, as everyone was especially looking forward to the show. She and Sasaki Mirei promise to recapitulate the lessons of the 5th grade again.
