In January 2006 the Left Coast Brass toured Japan. Our first stop was the beautiful city of Himi in the Toyama prefecture. It just so happened there was an unusual amount of snow that year and consequently some of our luggage was delayed from being shipped from the airport to Himi. Our hosts were so gracious that they insisted on taking us shopping and bought us clothes to wear for our performance (which was a difficult task in itself trying to find clothes that fit us) until our baggage arrived. We were honored to then perform at the Coming of Age Ceremony in Himi, at which most of the city seemed to attend. All the young men and women in the audience were dressed in a traditional kimono. It was an amazing sight to look out at as we ended our performance singing, “All You Need Is Love” all together. www.leftcoastbrass.org
