YOU! GO! KYOTO!! is the 156th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the 4th episode of its "4th Season" (
Akari Ōzora's previous roommate, Yū Hattori has gained popularity through being a "Travelling Idol"! Now, Yū and Akari's unit Luminas are heading for Kyoto at the same time. The TV program in Kyoto that Yū was planning to attend turns out to have also invited Luminas. The reason behind the brilliance of Yū right now is thanks to a promise made between her and Akari.
As Akari and Sumire finish packing they watch the television announce the new arc of Aikatsu Sensei debuting that evening. Only to watch when it switches to the "A Hot Look at Today", and the announcer reveals they will be observing an Idol taking an "upswing". He comments that she has introduced a new genre of idol, known as "travel idol", and to Akari's surprise, it's Yuu. They continue to watch the program as Yuu shows some various spots she has been to; ranging from a foot bath in the Alkaline thermal hot spring, a temple while the announcer points out that she has appeared on several travel shows, she crosses a long bridge, and even had tea with a woman donning a kimono. He points out that she has recently been selected as the campaign girl for a travel agency and will be journeying all around the country. As the program comes to an end, Sumire recalls that they need to hurry up and get finished.
They run to the van to greet Hinaki and soon get going. As they sit in the van, Akari reveals they are traveling to Okinawa - but before they go, Yuu stops them to ask for a ride. She thanks them for agreeing to it after they get sityated and asks them to drop her off in Kyoto at the TV station. She will be making an appearance on a weekly live show for one of the local stations, and Hinaki points out that it isn't an inconvience since they have a lot more time open for this schedule. They reveal that they were watching the show she was on earlier and she tells them to hold out their hands. She gives each of them a candy and Akari thanks her for giving her the flavor she favors most.
Hinaki and Sumire comment that Yuu really knows Akari well, and Akari reveals she has known Yuu for over a year and a half by now. They used to be roommates, and they first met last April on the tenth, the day that Akari finally got into Starlight Academy. She recalls that she got a late start as she was accepted through the special Idol Caravan event, and Yuu was her only friend at first. They remember first meeting, with Yuu recalling that she felt lonely returning home to an empty room. But she remained hopeful, and used to spend the time wondering what her new roommate would be like. Then one day she found out she would be getting a roommate, the surprising Akari, and she was very excited. She recalled watching her audition, when Akari first accidentally introduced herself as Ichigo, then remembered when Akari first came to the dorm room. Hinaki then asks Yuu what her first impression of Akari, and she takes a moment to think it over before saying she was unable to let her out of her sight, and recalls the first thing Akari did when she was setting up her side of the dorm. She put a rice scoop and explained how much she wanted to be like Ichigo, stating that it was a charm. Yuu decided from that moment she and Akari would be friends, causing Sumire to claim that Yuu probably knows a lot of secrets about Akari that they might not. Hinaki asks her to tell them, but she claims that while she wouldn't have a problem with it, Akari might be bothered.
Eventually they arrive to a rest stop and Yuu holds up a flag, offering to give the girls a quick tour of the spot. She mentions that the staff from the show made it for her, so she's been carrying it around when she goes out. She brings them to a soft serve stand, then to try free range milk, and some meat from another stand. The girls sit down for their snack and compliment the various qualities of it while complimenting Yuu for knowing so much. This causes Hinaki to guess that Yuu became a travel idol because of the exchange student program she was a part of. She recalls that she got to visit Kyoto when she switched with Miyabi, and Kobe when she switched with Kokone. In this time, she go invited to local shows to represent Starlight Academy, and people just started to call her a travel idol.
She claims it is all thinks to Akari, surprising the girls. So Yuu explains that Akari becoming her roommate gave her a huge boost, and Akari agrees with it. They finish their snack and get back onto the Van, with Yuu commenting that they will be arriving to her destination very soon. Sumire asks about the show she will be on, and Yuu replies by showing them a pamphlet she was given. She explains that they will be holding a Halloween Special and she asks the girls if they have time to go on a very special Hattori Tour. The girls note they have way too much free time right now, and they agree to join her.
They soon reach the location, with the girls voicing surprise as they didn't expect Yuu to bring them to the studio she was to be dropped off at. She claims that because she had a big part in the planning, it wasn't hard to get permission. With that she runs off to change and the program begins with Yuu introducing herself and the program, as well as the fact that it is the Halloween Special. She also plans to wave her Hattori Tours flag due to the special occasion, then reveals her special guests: Luminas. This surprises everyone to see the girls dressed up for Halloween and they greet everyone. Yuu compliments their outfits before she reveals her other special guests: Kokone and Miyabi. Excitedly Akari greets her, with Kokone explaining that she hurried over with Miyabi when they found out they would be appearing. Miyabi appears, dressed as a cutesy fairy and greets them - quickly pointing out that she was the one to choose their costumes. She shows them that she isn't nearly as shy as she used to be, and introduces everyone to her brand new, cute-styled introduction. With that, she and Kokone introduce their plans to put on a performance and change to perform.
Afterwards Yuu thanks them before Akari admits that she didn't expect to see them at all. She goes on to thank Yuu for being so kind to them, showing them around, and even letting them join her on this show. Then they go onto the stage to perform and show Yuu their thanks.
That evening, the six girls walk through the area while discussing how much fun they had. Akari, Sumire, and Hinaki will be spending the night at a hotel, and Yuu comments on how nice the road is while recalling she walked down it while there on exchange at Miyabi's school. Akari happily comments that Yuu must have learned a lot while on her travels, and soon they arrive to the hotel. Kokone and Myabi make a promise with the girls to do something with them again at some point and leave for Miyabi's place as the girls say goodbye.
In the hotel room, the girls notice that Akari has fallen asleep. Sumire covers her with a blanket and she asks Yuu what inspired her to go through with the exchanges in the first place. Once again, Yuu claims it had to do with watching Akari, and says that she continues to watch her shine more brilliantly than before. She recalls waking to see her cut her hair, or when she attended Aikatsu Boot Camp. She never quit trying to work her hardest, and despite the bumps on the road she kept working at it anyway, as if she kept being reborn. After they were forced to each get a brand new dorm room, they made a promise and recalls that day when it occured. They said goodbye to the room and Yuu mentions her plan to continue shining more brightly than the last, even if they are apart. Akari agrees and they make a promise on it. After finishing her story, she comments that she left on her journey to follow Akari.
The next morning, Yuu sees Luminas off. They exchange some words, with Yuu explaining that she may have wanted Akari to see who she was now, and Akari promises to put more effort into things from now on, with Yuu agreeing the same thing. With that she watches them leave, then quietly thanks Akari after they disappear.
- In one scene, Kokone's neckpiece was colored green instead of white.
