Actually, there were a lot of things I tried for the first time in this shoot. For example, I wore a Lolita costume for a wedding-like theme. It's not often that I get a chance to wear Lolita clothes, but I really liked it, so I was happy. I wore my hair in twin-tails and was photographed looking very cute (laughs). Also, I've always wanted to be in a bathtub filled with flowers! And this time, they prepared a lot of beautiful fresh flowers... It was a moment when one of my dreams came true. --How do you relax during your voluntary stay at home? Recently, I've been looking at a lot of pictures and videos of animals! I've been doing a lot of research on rare animals, and I've found videos that are about an hour-long, and I've been watching them all by myself (laughs). There's nothing special about these videos, they're just showing the animal in its daily life, but I really like them, so I just stare at them.
