Japan’s all-girl idol group AKB 48 is launching yet another sister group, this time to be based in the Seto Inland Sea area.

STU48 stands for Setouchi, the Japanese name of the coastal areas surrounding the waterway in western Japan. It will have its theater on a boat that will tour around the body of water, according to the official website of the planned group.
