Japan is a pretty amazing place. We made so many new friends, saw so many incredible bands, and ate all the delicious treats. And there was an owl.
Why was this owl hanging out? We may never know, but you could take a photo with him for free.
On the way to the first gig.
Yay cherry blossoms!
We have many people to thank, most of all Hajime – for making this whole thing possible. Look at this cool guy:
He introduced us to the magical world of shaved ice.
Thanks also to Baby Bowser, Daisuke, Tak, Mari, Hideki, Ryotaro, Sebata, so so many more! Really everyone involved with these shows and this tour was really kind, warm, and accommodating to our complete inability to speak any Japanese whatsoever. Also all the bands were so tight. Here’s just a few photos:
Akutagawa…did you call me?
And here’s us! Thanks Ryotaro
Bonus: an interview of us that played in the club before the show on our first night! surreal and awkward
Guess this thing was right after all.
