The three posed for the press during a promotional event for a mobile phone carrier KDDI au.

KDDI in Tokyo launched its “Green Road Project.” au users can donate 1 yen for each 1 kilometer they walk or run AFTER downloading the company’s online service “au Smart Sports Run&Walk.”

The money raised will go towards buying seeds of bitter gourd and morning glory. Those seeds will be distributeed for free at au shops to promote KDDI’s greening project.

Ebi-chan gushed: “It is so cool and I like men who give it their all when they try something.”
