“Let’s rock out in style at Gassan Rock 2011 and make a difference!”

Over the past few months, we, living in Tohoku, have been in the kind thoughts and prayers of those from all over the world. So….we think, it’s about time we enjoyed ourselves, and what better way than through the sound of music.
ボクハ キミニ アイヲ カタルヨ。”
…Souzou-no-mori is set amid the beautiful hills of Haguro town over looking Tsuruoka city, Yamagata ken. This is a perfect opportunity to kick back and enjoy the music with new and old friends. Being the July long weekend, it gives people plenty of time to get there and to recover before heading back to work on Tuesday. So round up your possy
and make the most of it.
