Former idol, Rino Sashihara is done with Valentine’s chocolate



Former member of popular idol group AKB48, Rino Sashihara, is done with the expectation of giving chocolates (Giri choco 義理チョコ) out of social obligation.

She tweeted that said expectation is very high, finding the custom to be annoying and that no one questions it and just follows tradition, adding she dislikes the judgment you get for not complying with tradition.

Giri choco ("obligation chocolate") is given by women to men on Valentine's Day in Japan. It is given to male co-workers, casual acquaintances, and others to whom they have no romantic attachment. Men reciprocate by giving women cookies and other gifts on White Day, celebrated on March 14.
