Keyakizaka46 member Yurina Hirate has injured her arm, forcing her to go on a one month hiatus in order to recover.
Hirate began experiencing pain in her right arm during the group's tour. Doctors determined that she had injured her triceps.
The idol had attempted to work through her injury, seeking treatment that would allow her to continue her activities at the same time. However, doctors determined that she will need to take an entire month off while she gets treatment and recovers.
Keyakizaka46 is set to hold its first Nippon Budokan concerts from January 30 - February 1. Hirate will be unable to perform at these concerts. She will also be absent from upcoming handshake events.
Hirate is the center member of Keyakizak46 and has been with the group as a 1st generation member.
