Well, the Year of the Rabbit is coming, so the best way to celebrate is a Miffy solid gold calendar from Ginza Tanaka (expert jewelry maker who also provides ridiculously expensive goods like the World's Most Expensive Christmas Tree, 24 Karat Gold Swimwear, Platinum Gundam to name a few)

The calendar is made of 6 kilograms of gold and sells for an incredible 55 million yen!!!!- (about $660,000 USD)  let's hope the Year of the Rabbit means financial success!

Introducing Japanese Band Volume 6- "Kobayashi Taro"!

Today's Volume is a solo artist- Kobayashi Taro

Born in 1990, Hamamatsu city, Providence of Shizuoka.
He was on a TV show "Street Fighters" in 2008 with his band called "Kobayashi Taro & Masakari KatsuiDers", and got the 1st award of the contest "Street Fighter High School Generation Fes. '08" of the show

He released his first album "Orkonpood" on Jan 13th, 2010, starting his solo career.
He is very popular in Japan and plays many of the large festivals.  One of his songs from Orkonpod is the theme song for a popular TV drama series.

The sound is strongly influenced by grunge music, and I was impressed by the power of his voice and the songs can touch one's heart, whether it be hard rock or a slow vocal.

My best from 1st album "Orkonpood" 

It is the "Dragusuta"
Hard rock. 

Here is a slow song- "Misako Chan".
Used for the TV Drama series. Good song. I love this.

I cannot wait for more albums and hope to see him live one day!

Created in 1999 and did their major debut in 2006.
A rock band of jamming play style from Yokohama, the tunes are mostly instrumental.
Some tunes have a few lyrics, but they are just replies of the chorus, and they use the chorus as instruments.
The groove is happy & fun! Whenever they play, it creates a very happy vibe- they are an awesome band to see live. 

Here are tunes of that Special Others that I want to introduce.
"AIMS" from their 1st album "Good Morning".


I love this tune, and it makes me move my body!

"Laurentech" from 2nd album"Quest"


A live shoot, mood is warm.

"Potato" from 3ed album "PB"


This tune is inspired by a hamburger restaurant chain.
The chorus in the tune is the sound of a fryer when potato is fried.
Makes me want french fries, yumm!
