Well, that Japanese article did not cover this really extensively. To be exact it is everybody of the "kaigai-gumi" EXCEPT Nakagawa Haruka (still JKT48 only), is now holding a dual post (back) at AKB48. (SNH48) Miyazawa Sae is now holding a dual post in AKB48 team K, (SNH48) Suzuki Mariya at AKB48 team A and (JKT48) Takajō Aki at team B.

And a lot more personnel shifts besides from what was mentioned Very Happy...

Wait, how many domes are there in Japan to begin with?

Reading the headline, I thought it was referring to something like having five consecutive concerts at Tokyo Dome.

According to wiki, 5 with at least 30 000 seats each : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_stadiums_in_Japan.

And they'll be doing them all several times :

And yet they have not done a world tour unlike Super Junior (they just finished up their South American tour) and Girls Generation not long ago have announced their world tour. If J-pop wants to start catching up to their Korean counterpart, do a world tour.

They don't need the world to make big money and that's the reason why the don't give a F-----, the Japanese market is big enough for them. L'Arc~en~Ciel did a World Tour last year and it was very successful, they skipped South America sadly.

I think the Japanese should know that the audience here in South America is the best in the world.
