Sakurazaka46 member Endo Hikari will be taking a break from her activities for the time being.
According to the group's official website, Endo plans to take this time to fully rest. She wrote on the group's blog, "I reached this point thinking 'I want to do this!' 'I need to do this!' 'I can still do it!' unable to take the step to take a break." She added, "It's not a negative break, but I want to rest and rejuvenate in order to shine even more in front of everyone."
Consequently, Endo will be absent from the group's special event, which will be held on September 10 in Tokyo to commemorate the release of their first album "As you know?"
