Konichiwa from Japan - September 2011

John's tour of Japan covered venues from the mountains to the ocean and everywhere in between. He visited the sacred city of Kamakura, did a slack key guitar workshop and performance in Izu, played a few surf festivals and some fantastic clubs, met some wonderful new friends and ate lots of great food. He also accepted invitations from numerous radio stations to perform and talk story (translated to Japanese, of course), on their airwaves. He brought a message of aloha from Hawaii to those affected by the March earthquake and tsunami and left the country very much looking forward to coming back.  Arigato gozaimasu Japan!
