On the way to the bank after taking some blossom snaps at the shrine, I passed through the recently built shopping center 'Asunal' (not to be confused with football teams or piles ointments). The center has a stage, and each week local performers do their thing for the local crowd. This week was the turn of two girl groups "Banana" and "Cara't".
Banana have aquired a certain faim after their first single "Over the rainbow" was chosen for a T.V commercial. They are the senior group, with members in their mid twenties and an established (mostly male) following.
Accompanying them were their (younger) sister group "Cara't". This is a group of four girls, 2 High School and 2 Junior High School. The group is promoted as an 'Idol unit'. The girl pictured is the youngest member at 13/14 years old. Their performance costume is so similar to a school uniform as to make you think that the promoters are hoping to sell the school girl image. ... which of course they are.
