Miki Nishino Regret Exit AKB48 and Now Working As A Restaurant Officer


Idol graduation is very common in the entertainment industry, and many of them graduate because of their own decisions. There are some members who graduate and live happily, and there are also members who regret such decisions as Miki Nishino. Nishino originally joined AKB48 in July 2012 as a member of the 14th generation. He joined the group for about 5 years until graduating in March 2017.

After graduation, he tried to continue his idol career and affiliated with the company "Twin Planet Entertainment." Unfortunately, he did not earn enough money to sustain the living expenses, so he worked part-time at a BBQ restaurant.

Nishino works about 3 days a week and earns 1,000 yen per hour. He complained that he always performed at Budokan and Tokyo Dome, now he's doing handshakes with customers for free.



Miki Nishino may not be in the top rank in the AKB senbatsu, but the money she earns is high enough. In the election of the 8th senbatsu he was in 61st position.

As a member of AKB48, he lives in a nice apartment located in Shinagawa area and has no problem to pay the rent fee of 210,000 yen per month. But after graduating, Nishino must lower his standards, and currently, he lives in a room that has a rent of 80,000 yen a month.

"The bathtub in my place right now can not heat the water automatically, it sucks!"

Although he may not be satisfied with his current state of life, he at least says that he is having a good time working in a BBQ restaurant.
