So I was watching Japan’s international channel NHK World.

The song was produced by NHK to show support for the recovery efforts in the disaster struck areas […]


I had the opportunity to catch Japanese pop punk rockers Uzuhi live late last month. Before the show I was not very familiar with the band other than the fact that they were Japanese and, well, pop punk rockers. It was an amazing show and just like that they gained a new fan. The band’s […]
