いよいよ Hyper Japan Winter 2012 in one week!

Hyper Japan is only one week away! 嬉しくて楽しみにしています 😉 In the mean time, here’s a preview of some of the performances that will be appearing on stage.

Ninjaman Japan will be on stage Saturday 24th. They are what you would call a visual kei (ヴィジュアル系) band. Visual kei is a particular type of fashion where they use heavy make-up, have very showy hair, and their clothes definitely make a statement. Some also describe visual kei as being slightly androgynous. To me, it looks like men dressed like anime characters. As you can tell, I don’t know much about this subculture as of yet, but there will be a talk on Friday 23rd about this fashion movement which I am also looking forward to.

Tomoca will be on stage Sunday 25th. Her music is a fusion of western pop and Japanese music, which the artist has described as “wa-pop” (literally “Japanese Pop”). I can’t wait to see what kimono she will be wearing 😉

And finally, a special guest appearance from guitar legend Hotei Tomoyasu on Friday 23rd!

Recognize this…?
