Five-member girl group Kara became the first Korean all-female group to hold a concert at the Tokyo Dome with their “Karaisa 2013 Happy New Year in Tokyo Dome” performance on Sunday.
The concert, which attracted 45,000 fans, was part of Kara’s Japan tour which had the girls performing 12 shows in front of more than 100,000 fans across the country including in Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka. Previous to the girls’ concert, the only other girl groups that had performed at the Tokyo Dome recently were the Japanese acts AKB48 and Perfume.
Kara made its Japan debut in 2010 by signing with Universal Sigma. That same year, the group was named the Japan’s top rookie artist by Oricon and received the “New Artist of the Year Award (International)” at the Japan Gold Disc Awards.
