09.08.14Back from Japan!

I would like to thank all of you who came to my shows in Japan -- Tokyo, Shin-Yokohama, Kobe, and Osaka!

It was BIG fun playing with amazing Yoshiki Yamada (bass) and Ryo Noritake (drums) as always! I appreciate their musicality and musicianship. Looking forward to playing with this trio next year again.

Also, big thank you to Jin Mitsuda (drums) and Yusaku Ichio (guitar) for making music together.

Smiles:)
