About AKB48 Team 8 

AKB48 Team 8 is a team formed under a project by AKB48 and Toyota on April 3, 2014, and is unique in several ways. First of all, the concept of Team 8 is "Idols who will go to meet you", which is different from the concept of AKB48 (Idols who you can meet). Secondly, Team 8 consists of 47 members (*45 members as of April 2020, one graduated, and one is currently in Korean group IZONE), which is substantially different from the other AKB48 teams consisting of 16 to 21 members. Each member of Team 8 is selected individually from each of the 47 prefectures of Japan. This allows them to participate at local events and programs in various locations of Japan, because there is always a member who is familiar with the specific region. With the support of Toyota, the main goal of Team 8 is to travel to every prefectures of Japan, and bring happiness to all the fans at their hometown. As part of the goal, Team 8 has begun their concert tour since 2014. As of April 2020, they have visited and performed in 44 prefectures of Japan. The concert tour was originally scheduled to complete on April 2020, but has now been postponed until further notice due to the global pandemic.
