HKT48のおでかけ！ Air Date: 1/5/2017
First episode of new year is always fine. Nothing has changed but the show is quite good for what it is.
Sashihara, Goto, and 4 HKT48 Kenkyuusei members: Matsumoto Hinata, Toyonaga Aki, Oda Ayaka and Unjo Hirona went to one of many shrines in Dazaifu city.
As expected from trips like this, there are informational bits about the place, history behind the shrine, and a lot of the girls eating local treats in front of the camera.
At first the young kenkyuusei girls act kind of timid, but with support from Sasshi and after trying a hand full of goodies on a market street, they start to act more uninhibited and noisy.
Almost the whole second half of the show is about the six of them and Goto visiting the fortune teller, Morita Kyoko, to get to know what lies ahead this year. It’s a ranking, so some were very happy about these predictions, while some ended up in tears.
