Prefectural Cultural International Citizen’s Assembly Center (big hall)

Pop-rock group Remioromen may have a difficult-to-pronounce name (GACKT himself claims that he first read their name as “Remiomeron [remio-melon]”, and I have undergone training so as not to call them “Remiorem” anymore.), but these guys can rock. And rock they will, come May…and it looks like they won’t stop rocking until the end of the year. Now that is what I call an anniversary tour worthy of the ten years its celebrating.

Seriously. That’s the longest tour schedule I’ve ever seen. And I never want to hear the words “prefectural cultural citizen’s assembly super plaza center plus (big hall)” ever again. I did, however, greatly improve my ability to read Japanese city names (and if you ever need help finding the sign for an ‘assembly hall’ in Japan, I’m your sherpa.).
