Cal arranges today’s shows and the venue placed at just few Steps from his flat in Shinokubo, Shinjuku. Middle of Tokyo with atmosphere of South East Asia, as there are many original restaurants from those countries. Cal once told me he likes Thai food..so this is right place for him to live. This time Im staying at Takazous place.
Takazou is friendly dentist, I came by train (Cyuou line!). I arrived the venue quite early with hangover (also trouble with stomach) as last night I had appointment with my brothers daughter Shiori we drunk until last train. So, when I arrived at this venue, I was not really good condition even I cannot remember how I get back to Takazous from Shinjyuku last night… feel dizzy. Promised myself not to drink any alcohol today..just have water. I done 3 sets..but all 3 were so different. Yuko was also here as she promised. She knows my music since we met on airplane. She seems to be enjoying my music. Shiori brought two friends, they’re out from their evening school for art curator almost end of shows.
After the show we went to Korean restaurant near by in midnight with some sound carriers, there are many place like here, very comfortable and normal price..even cheaper. Tokyo is mammoth city, but not comfortable late night. No possibility to get back home after last train gone. You can imagine if you’re living in London..its same. But this kind of restaurant doesn’t close until last guest go home. It was yummy Korean foods, we share…I kept just drink water and tea.
So, we, few sound carriers, who cannot get back home right now stayed here until first train start, eat and drink….Japan is he best land to do this. These Korean people were so friendly. After WW2 lived around 2 million Korean, now something like 600,000. Generally they speak good Japanese. But, have to say we Japanese so much ugly thing to them in our history.
