“Cool & Country” is our concept.
Ringo Musume, a dance and singing unit, originates from activities of Hirosaki Actors’ School Project, a volunteer group founded in Hirosaki, Aomori, Japan in July 2000.
The project sought two missions such as, 1) to transmit regional information by means of music and entertaining activities, 2) to revitalize our sweet home Aomori and primary industries of all over Japan and abroad through entertainments.
Now the project is incorporated as Ringo Music Corporation founded in 2005.
Every member of Ringo Musume is named after each different apple variety, which keeps reminding us of promoting Aomori, #1 apple production region in Japan. We are known as “active farming idols.” We are all interested in farming and actually challenging on the farms in both private and TV shows.
We have been drawing public attentions as a forefront regional entertainer by our frequent appearances on TV/radio shows and commercials, in addition to our energetic activities including event performances at 80+ annually, volunteer lives at local kindergartens/schools/senior citizens’ homes etc.
“Ringo” is a Japanese word that means “Apple” in English.
“Musume” means “Young Girls” in Japanese. Ringo Musume was named after our hope that the members who are young girls would represent every apple town in Aomori.
