Japanese pop singer Ayumi Hamasaki was taken to hospital Saturday after performing at a concert in Nagoya, with her management later confirming she was suffering anaphylactic shock.
Although Hamasaki, 43, fell unconscious temporarily, her life is not in danger from the severe allergic reaction, Avex Management Inc said on her official website on Sunday.
She has canceled her concert scheduled on Sunday evening in the same city, it said.
Hamasaki, known for popular songs such as “Seasons” and “M” released in 2000, was on a tour that began last month. She will consult her doctor and others on whether to resume her performance schedule, the office said.
Japan is to partially ease coronavirus travel restrictions on new entry of foreign nationals starting on Monday. New arrivals will be allowed for the first time in 10 months, except for sightseeing purposes.
The Japanese government with the support of the ruling coalition plan to give 1,00,000 yen (USD 878) in cash to every citizen aged 18 and younger in a bid to mitigate the post-coronavirus effects, the Kyodo news agency reported on Friday, citing sources familiar with the matter.
