It has been reported that Rina Matsuno has passed away suddenly.

Her cause of death has not been revealed yet. However, she did not participate in the group’s concert on the 7th of February in Osaka as she was feeling unwell. She stayed at home, but her condition was getting worse so she was admitted to the hospital. She was pronounced dead on arrival. Fans consider this to be a shock as she never showed patterns of  being so ill and was even posting on social media the day before.

Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku will not be holding their concert on February 8th to mourn for the loss of their member.

The staff at Japako are sending our condolences to her family as well as her group. May she rest in peace.
