Team 8 of AKB48 recently arrived in Manila for the Cool Japan Festival 2015 where they wowed the Filipino crowd with an amazing performance. But before they performed at the event, the members of Japan’s most popular mega-idol group payed a visit to the noontime variety show, It’s Showtime, which is aired in ABS-CBN.

After their Showtime appearance, Team 8 headed to Trinoma Mall’s Activity Center where they performed for the local Filipino crowd. Here are some images from their performance taken by taken by Rappler’s Alecs Ongcal.
