Okada Yukiko, 30 years already

Okada Yukiko (岡田有希子)On this April 8, J-Pop Idols pays tribute to a popular idol of the 1980s, the lovely Okada Yukiko (岡田有希子).

Indeed, this is 30 years since Okada Yukiko passed away prematurely at the age of 18, after jumping from the top of the Sun Music Building in Tokyo in the morning of April 8, 1986, a highly publicized suicide that caused a wave of suicides throughout the Japanese archipelago in the same year.
