I believe they were just comparing audiences to show that Japanese audiences are generally more well-behaved. I don't think Masa was making any remarks in particular about U.S. audiences; rather, it was the interviewer who was expressing his doubts. Perhaps the Live 8 DVD appearance will spark new i...

DCT Garden Ikeda has a display of Miwa's stage costumes, a small library of her favorite books, a viewing area with a couch that belonged to her that viewers may sit on while they watch DVD's, and a store where special DCT items only available there may be purchased. I don't know if this was the sam...

POWER PLANT EXPRESS interview with Masato Nakamura

(From July 2005 issue) Interviewer: This is your solo interview. How is Miwa doing after the tour? Is she doing well? Masa: Yes, she is doing well. I talked with her this morning. Since 'What Mee Mee Wants' has started, the response has been so much more than we expected, or as we expected, it is ge...

showtime.jp is making the live 8 japan broadcast available by performer. Unfortunately, it's pay-per-view, and DCT's set will not be available until October. Where's that Fuji TV broadcast?

You can actually see some photos of DCT (2!) in Live 8 Japan at
phillyBurbs.com. Looks like Masa got a haircut...

Still no word on the concert broadcast, though.

POWER PLANT

With the help of my wife and her Mother I have been able to join POWER PLANT. It appears that a Japanese mailing address is necessary in order to fill out the application form. I have received a special Diamond 15 magazine, a July newsletter, and a membership card with protector and a very nice Dori...

Live 8 Japan

It appears that Fuji TV will finally broadcast the Live 8 Japan concert today (August 13) at 11:00 pm Tokyo time. I hope someone will be able to record the concert and make it available for download (I hope Fuji will actually air it this time).

When my wife and I are arriving in/leaving Tokyo, my Mother-in-law uses Kan-Pachi-dori to take us to/from Ogikubo Station. She uses Kan-Nana-dori when we need her to take us to church in Koenji (and if she can drive in Tokyo, she could probably take us anywhere!).

SNOW DANCE- a brief walking tour of Daikanyama

Hello all: As per Tachikaze's recommendation, during our trip to Japan a few weeks ago, my wife and I visited Daikanyama to retrace, if possible, Miwa's footsteps in the video. If you have the video, you should be able to follow along by going to: http://groups.msn.com/SnowDanceDaikanyama The pictur...

I have just returned from Japan, and despite what Fuji TV stated about showing a Live 8 broadcast, I was unable to find to find a listing for it in the TV grids, nor did they show it at 10:00 pm on July 2d as stated on their website. The newspapers did not mention the concert the following day; howe...

Damn! My flight arrives at Narita at 3:15 pm that day! But it looks like Fuji TV will have a Live 8 broadcast at 10:00 pm- at least I might get to see DCT that way... Oh well...

Dreams Come True Winter Fantasia in IKSPIARI photos

Hello All: I was finally able to post a few photos my wife and I took last December at DCT Winter Fantasia in IKSPIARI at Tokyo Disneyland. Unfortunately, because of a combination of the lighting and my little digital camera, most of them did not come out. Rather than a disappointment, though, I hop...

Thanks for the map- it will make our trip that much more interesting. In America we are so used to having so much space and spreading everything out. In Japan, available space is maximized, making for some very attractive (as well as functional) homes and buildings. As for travel in cities, my wife ...

Daikanyama

According to the newly opened 'What Mee Mee Wants' site, there is a store in Daikanyama called 'Cor Blimey' (help me, British DCT fans) that will have some of the items featured to try on. One of the members of wmmw owns this store. It looks like most sales, though, will be through the site. Guess I...

I can't say I've been to any boring places in Tokyo- possibly because my visits are usually limited to ten days or so- but when I'm there, I can't pass up an opportunity to talk to the General. Just seeing that subway sign gives me a little chill. Aoyama cemetary is definitely a good walk, Harajuku ...
