Nogizaka46's Ikuta Erika will release her first photo book "Tenchou" on January 21st.
The photos were shot in Düsseldorf, Germany, where Ikuta was born. This marked her first time returning to Germany since she moved to Japan at the age of 5. It turned out to be a memorable photo session as she got to visit her home and places she used to play when she was a child. In addition, Ikuta poses in a swimsuit for the first time in this photo book.
"I visited Germany for the first time in 13 years and fell in love with it. It made me proud to think that I was born and raised there. I hope you will take a look at it as if you went back home with me," she said.
