20 years ago when Hanshin Awaji Great Earthquake occurred, there was a lot of support offered from all over the world. We never forget how grateful we felt at that time. This tour was partly made to express our gratitude and also to let people in Tohoku know that we won't forget them either. At the same time, however, we could not convince ourselves whether we would be able to do anything good. Now we know there was no need to worry. People open heartedly accepted our music at every place we visited. Audience sang to the music, sometimes with tears or laughs. Communication from heart to heart was made. It was so encouraging to see the audience so full of smiles.
