!!News!!*Currently [HIHOKAN] has been reactivated after changing its band name [HITOKAN] with the same members (except base) from May 2019 after six years of inactivity.

(background: While performing the role of a ghost in a play in Shinjuku in spring 2009, the leader of Hihokan, the band providing music for the play, Ryo Saito, liked her style and invited her to a gig the next day. There she performed as a ghost and ended up joining the band. After talking it over with her fellow members, she settled on the name Takarako Atami.
