Exactly one month ago, I was in Tokyo and happily attending Fudanjuku events. Had my first group handshake with them during the PON! event on the 27 March and that was my first time seeing them all so up close…Before I could think of what to say to them, I realised that Kojiro was the first in the queue and my mind went blank. My very first handshake with my boys and the first one is my oshi?! Thanks, but this isn’t very good for my kokoro. Still, managed to tell everyone I was from Singapore and that I’d be seeing them again at Hyogo and Nakano. Was pretty much at a loss for words after that because WOW I FINALLY MET FUDANJUKU!
Took the shinkansen to Hyogo on the 29 March for their event at Nishinomiya Gardens. Took a bunch of polaroids and managed another round of handshakes with all of them. When I was walking up to the stage to take the group photo with them, they all recognized me from the PON! event handshake and asked for my name. So 感動 T_T The one english phrase that they’re really good at is “I love you” and they used it a lot, especially since they knew I was from Singapore. I’m not complaining though, they’re all super awesome and just soooo darnnn nice ;a; Such good boys…
30 March, Nakano Sunplaza concert. As I was queuing outside, waiting to enter to buy the merchandise, the rain and wind came so fast and furious it was crazy. Sasuga “Power of the Wind”. The concert was almost 3 hours long and packed with mucho goodness. Their live at Shibuya Public Hall that I attended last year wasn’t even this long if I remember correctly.
All in all, my 2014 trip to Japan was jam packed with a whole lot of fun and memories. Met up with awesome twitter friends and made a few new friends too. Also, CHERRY BLOSSOMS! GORGEOUS, I tell ya…G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S. I love spring. I really do.
