Japan is my spirit home. Though it was my first time to go there this year, I already felt such an affinity for the place and for the people. It’s beautiful and I can’t wait to go back! I’m so grateful that Nino brought Bella and I along with him last March (he had a few shows there while we were there). He has loved Japan ever since I knew him (and for much longer than that) and has traveled there repeatedly – once even living there for over 4 months. It was such a great experience for all of us to have him take us around and show us all his favorite places and to meet his Japanese friends.
