Just after the convention Sakura-Con opened its door, it was the opening party to introduce all the events and artists of the convention. At the end, Berryz Kobo came on stage to introduce themselves and answer to some questions.

Then some fans rushed directly to the booth of HelloStoreUSA to buy the CD and have the precious ticket for a sign. There also was the Berryz Kobo booth (of which you saw some pictures on this blog the day before the opening) with the charity box, the costume of Maasa Sudo and some live videos of Berryz.

Following this Later it was the Q&A session with the fans. And it has been possible for all the fans to take pictures during one minute, it was flashing from everywhere ;)
So the members answered many questions, Saki Shimizu made beatbox with Chinami Tokunaga for example, they really exchanged a lot with the fans during this special moment. The members were happy to see also some families (parents and children, all fans). One of the mother made cosplay costumes of Berryz for her children !!

The final event for the group was the first signing session. Of course all the special tickets were sold out for the first day, they signed many CDs but also photobooks, pictures, towels and some other things.
The first day of the convention ended for them just after this. Be sure to get ready for the day 2!!
