ABOUT ME

Hello, I'm a UK-based (Canterbury) Japanese musician/PhD researcher.
I'm doing music by myself and I would like to have my small record (and also publishing) label in future.
I love having friends all over the world.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

When I was in Dublin, my cashing card didn't work in last days.
I had to earn money for the taxi to the airport.
I earned 40$ by performing 1 song on the street, so I'm back in Japan now. The song was Wonderwall written by Oasis.
