K-pop rookie group GOT7 wrapped up its first Japan tour with a stop in Tokyo, star label JYP Entertainment said Friday.

About 25,000 fans flocked to nine concerts in five cities on GOT7’s Japan tour, “GOT7 FIRST JAPAN TOUR 2014 AROUND THE WORLD,” which kicked off in Osaka on Oct. 7 and ended Thursday.

“On the tour, the seven members -- JB, Mark, Jr., Jackson, Youngjae, Bambam and Yugyeom -- showed off their powerful dance moves in songs including the Japanese version of ‘Girls Girls Girls’ and ‘Around the World.’ The performance of ‘Girls Girls Girls’ featured a fusion of breakdancing and martial arts,” JYP said.

“Also, each GOT7 member showcased individual stages, in addition to the second EP album’s tracks ‘A’ and ‘So Lucky,’” the agency added.

“GOT7 means ‘seven boys got luck.’ And the luck is you, our fans. I hope you will support us with your unchanging love -- thank you,” the members of the boy group said.

Separately, GOT7 ranked second on Japan’s Oricon Daily chart and third on the Oricon Weekly chart, following the release of its debut single in Japan in October.
