That is the symbolic movement of the energetic momentum of the project currentlyhaving five groups,namely,AKB48(based in Akihabara Tokyo),SKE48(based in Sakae Aichi),NMB48(based in Namba Osaka),SDN48(Akihabara Tokyo),and HKT48(based in Hakata Fukuoka).  Now the project’s members have become the top female young idols of Japan, and the project has made up its mind to spread the activities to the international market beyond the borders.

  The  dead line of the first stage (documentary exam)of the first audition of JKT48 is this Sep.16th, and the final stage is going to be done on this October 9- 10th to select the first members out of  the candidates who will have passed the first and the second stage.  An applicant must be a female 13-18 years of age and a resident in Indonesia.

The management says,  it expects JKT to be a unique group making much of  Indonesian culture and society to start its career from Jakarta to Indonesia nationwide, and to the world.
