Business Networking Reception @ Crowne Plaza Hotel in Englewood, NJ


Wafoo was invited by Japanese-American Society of New Jersey and played a concert in Englewood, New Jersey. We were missing Yutaka the drummer because he was on tour to Canada. We did this concert with four of us and our calligrapher Sanae came back on stage after a long time.

Sending Yutaka off to Canada


Our drummer Yutaka is much in demand among all kinds of bands in everywhere in the world. I took him to Newark airport and he flew over to Canada. By the way, it was about 6am at the airport and I left home about 5am. I never get up before 12pm.

Taking Yutaka to Newark


I took Yutaka the drummer to the Newark Airport very early in the morning. He is leaving for a extremely-fun European tour ---- leaving his bandmates of WaFoo in here.
