30th there was so much rain that some trains stopped. This day I played a duo with Mr.Shindo which was fun as usual. Except that I forgot the shoes I wear on the way and back so I had to go back the next day to collect them. I was lucky because when I checked the schedule it said Dana Hanchard and Kazu Michishita and I am a great fan of the two of them. It was the birthday of one of the staff so the place was packed but I was also lucky enough to be able to sit in and play some songs. Today something very sad happened to me so it was a treat to be able to feel the pure energy of the two musicians.
