Masa Solo Acoustic Live in Yokohama Japan

Wednesday, Oct 17, 2012

It’s been 2 months since I came back to Japan. My mum’s recovery is amazing. She is nearly fully functional. She can do most of the house work like she used to do.
My dad is mentally more stabilised lately so I have a little more time for myself. The other day I walked around my town Yokohama and went to Koganecho district. It’s an area that used to be a red light district.
Now it’s all been cleaned up and artists moved in to create their studios. There are many small galleries and you can experience up-and-coming artists work.
I found a cafe called Shichoshitsu 2 where you can see live music regularly in the evening. So I dropped a O-ARC cd and got the gig on the same day. How lucky I am!!. I really wish Neil is with me but I have to do the solo this time.

If you are in Japan or travel to Japan around that time please pop in.

Hope see you there!

It’s time for me to be with my parents

Monday, Sep 17, 2012

We are really sorry for not keeping in touch for quite a long time.

I have been back to Japan for nearly a month now as my mom has been in a hospital with a broken leg and meanwhile I have to take care of my dad who has got Alzheimer’s. I will stay here at least until mid November to sort out possible issues that my parents will face in the near future.

We have started to rehearse new songs for our next album and I really want to carry on but now it’s time for me to be with my parents. Once I get back to London we will start gigging again.

I will update as often as I can.

Speak soon!
