  • That was back in late November 1996, and I suddenly have a thought of going. I contacted another Anchi fan in Seattle, Teruyuki Mihashi and we have the same ideas too, simply because the name "Anzen Chitai" appears on the ads. and this means the band is once again performing one "One Night Theatre" in Japan!! I and Terry just felt that this is the one and last chance that the 5 band members will join again and play some good stuffs, and so we contacted Masao Hayama, the original maintainer of Anzen chitai Homepage. Masao will return back to Japan in mid-December from Seattle, and he will purchase the tickets for us. Another fan Patrick Leung from Hong Kong will join us too. So 4 die-hard Anchi fans going to Budokan!

  • Around early-January, Terry received the concert tickets from Masao and he sent the tickets to me and Patrick. We are all really excited about the ticket but unfortunately it seems that Terry couldn't make it to the concert because he just couldn't get away from his work. So I promised to get him souvenirs since he has got me a ticket!! In the mean time I was planning for my trip and everything is ready! I will go to Kyoto first for 2 days and then for the remain 3 days and of course watching the concert on February 21!!
