On May 10, AKB48 performed in the event 'JAPAN DAY@CENTRAL PARK 2015' held at New York's Central Park. 

The Japanese cultural exchange event 'JAPAN DAY@CENTRAL PARK 2015' celebrated its 9th anniversary this year. This also marked AKB48's first performance in New York in about 6 years, since 2009. 

On this day, 6 members Kojima Haruna, Iwatate Saho, Oshima Ryoka, Nozawa Rena, Hirata Rina, and Muto Tomu took the stage. In front of about 5,000 New Yorkers, the girls performed 5 songs: "Heavy Rotation", "Aitakatta", "Oogoe Diamond", "Sakura no Hanabiratachi", and "Koisuru Fortune Cookie". 

After the event, Kojima commented, "I never imagined a day would come when I would be able to sing and dance in Central Park, so I was very honored to take part in this big event 'JAPAN DAY'." Hirata, who was born in the United States, said, "I am happy to return and hold a concert in my home country, the United States." This performance will be uploaded onto the group's official channel soon.
