When I visited the Kitano-Sho Castle Ruins near JR Fukui Station the other day, I spotted a small, cozy gallery on the other side of the alley from the ruins. I was intrigued, but didn't have time to explore. Last night, I went to a Jazz live concert that happened to be held at the very same gallery I had spotted the other day. This gallery is called, 'Fukui Kitano Show Classics', a sister gallery to one located in Shibuya, Tokyo, 'KOEN DORI CLASSICS'. It opened in June, 2013, as a gallery & live space, and various events such as live performances of Jazz, classical music, dance, and even Rakugo (Japanese storytelling) are held. Although it's small, listening to soothing jazz music in a cozy atmosphere was really nice. For upcoming events' schedule, please refer to the gallery's homepage.

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
