I've been in Japan last year
for a trip around traditions and video games, organized by a french retro games book and magazine editor : Pix'n Love
. I've been to Kyōto, Osaka and Tōkyō. It was a defining trip for me. I loved everything there : the weather, the mood, the people, the streets, the temples...
My only regret is that I haven't met too much locals and I definitely want to go back there one day.
10 years ago, Phish was coming back from a 7 shows tour in Japan. It was the last time they played outside of the American continent. Several trip reports and journals give us a glimpse of what is to see Phish in Japan, and after reading them I guess I'd prefer Phish to announce a tour over there than in Europe. Those articles remind me of the feelings I got in april 2009 when I was wandering the streets of Ikebukuro and Shinjuku by myself.
If a new tour in Japan would happen, nothing in the world could prevent me to make the trip. Yes, I know it's almost what I said for the US summer tour this year...
