Aloha kakahiaka!  It’s early morning here in Japan and I’ve been up since 3:30am due to jet lag!  I’m slowly adjusting, however, because I’m going to bed later … now if I can only sleep longer!  Had a great interview yesterday with John Kabira, J-Waves’ top morning DJ in Tokyo, and we did a series of 4 short interviews which included a contest to select a song for us to play live on the show.  The two songs selected for voting were I’M YOURS by Jason Mraz and TAKE IT EASY by the Eagles.  Over 6,500 listeners logged in to vote and the winner was I’M YOURS, which we then performed live during the final interview.  It was so cool and John’s an awesome DJ!  After that, we headed on over to Ikspiari at Tokyo Disneyland to perform again for the Lea Lea Hawai’i Festival and it wasn’t as cold this time – thank god!

By the time we returned to the hotel, we were pretty tired so we went to grab some ramen and beer and crashed early.  Today is the official start of Golden Week so we will be at Venus Fort in Odaiba through the weekend, and then leave for Osaka late Monday night.  And away we go … !!

Aloha, “D”
