When did you first come to Japan?:
I arrived in Japan in 2007.
Reason for coming to Japan:
When I first came to Japan, I was curious about the culture, and deeply interested in the Japanese alternative music scene -- I still am! There's still a lot of new, upcoming acts on the rise and it's exciting to do some digging to discover them.
