This is where …
NIrasaki, Yamanashi Prefecture, is pretty much straight west of Tokyo.
You can locate Mt. Fuji Southeast of Nirasaki (Like at 5 o’clock) on the map.
So, Why did I decide to go and see TMR here in NIrasaki of all places?
Good question, and I really cannot say it was a conscious decision,

And I just knew, intuitively, that doing this would be good.
Also I kind of sensed that his intention with going out to smaller venues,
like this one, was probably because he wanted to reach out!
And this kind of reaching out would probably mean a more intimate meeting with the audience than let’s say a huge concert at one of the bigger Tokyo venues for example, Zepp Tokyo or Shibuya AX,
