Hinatazaka46's official website announced on the 9th that Kishi Honoka, a member of the 4th generation, will be temporarily stepping back from her activities with the group due to health issues.
The statement reads, "Kishi Honoka, one of our valued members, is currently facing health challenges. As a result, we have decided to grant her a temporary hiatus from her responsibilities with Hinatazaka46 to facilitate her recovery."
The announcement concludes with an expression of gratitude and understanding: "We extend our apologies to our fans and all stakeholders for any inconvenience caused. Your understanding during this time is greatly appreciated."
Kishi Honoka, who joined Hinatazaka46 as part of the 4th generation last fall, was unable to participate in some of the performances of this year's nationwide tour, 'Happy Train Tour 2023,' due to her health.
For ongoing projects that have already completed filming or recording, their broadcast or publication may proceed as planned. Stay tuned for updates!
