Pomagajmo Japonski

Posredujemo iniciativo gospoda Shujija Kogija, direktorja EU – Japan Festa.

From Kogi: Help Japan with Photographs

“Ganbare Tohoku!!”
(The message urges Tohoku “to hang in there, to hold tough”.)

Dear friends,

It’s now going on three weeks since the great earthquake. Our dead number more than 11,000, and another 16,000 remain unaccounted for. Evacuation shelters are temporary home to 200,000. The Tohoku region that is bearing the brunt of this round of devastation is home to a great many EU-Japan Fest colleagues, but fortunately most have been confirmed safe and sound.

In the immediate aftermath of the quake we worked with our colleagues in the Tohoku area to provide daily shipments of materials, food, medicine, clothing and other urgent necessities. Shipments from Tokyo were relayed by these colleagues and reached disaster victims in need within 24 hours. Many, many friends in Europe responded immediately to the earthquake with kind words of sympathy and encouragement by email and telephone. Our gratitude for their thoughts for us knows no bounds.

Japan is in distress, but we are confronting this grim reality with level-headed mutual assistance and have started on the road to recovery.

And so there is a request I would like to make of our friends in Europe. My request is that you email me photographs of yourselves holding a sign reading “Ganbare Tohoku!!!” (The message urges Tohoku “to hang in there, to hold tough”.) The plan is to pass these photographs on to our colleagues fighting the good fight on the ground and to victims of the earthquake and tsunami. What they need most of all just now is courage, determination, grit. I am confident that the photographs you send will go a long way to sparking this courage in all of us throughout Japan.

Attached is an example of the sort of photograph I would like you to send. (Pictured is my mother, aged 97, who also experienced the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 that claimed 140,000 lives in and around Tokyo. She met the latest disaster with composure.) The other is of myself and my son Jiro on March 15. He’s the one who gives me courage.

Shuji Kogi
Please send to:
*Special notice:
1. Please send your e-mail to above address with your photograph one by one.
2. Please also write your name (please explain what you are), city, and country.
3. If neccesary, please enlarge the attached pdf file of sign reading “Ganbare Tohoku!!!”.
4. We sincerely hope you can also ask your friends, colleague, as many as possible.

Many thanks!

Orochi plakati!

Tukaj so lepi natiskani plakati, ki so jih prispevali naši prijatelji iz Društva Kapa (Gala Hala) in ki bodo krasili kar nekaj mest v naši Sloveniji:

Orochi plakati

P.S. Vemo, da bi radi imeli te plakate, vendar prosimo, da ko jih vidite po mestu, da jih ne trgate dol iz njihovih mest. Plakate boste lahko dobili tudi na samemu koncertu :)! Če bo kakšen ostal, nas brez skrbi pocukajte za rokav in vam ga bomo z veseljem dali, tako, da si boste lahko za vedno zapomnili prvi J-Rock koncert v Sloveniji!

Koncert skupine Orochi, bo ali ne?!

No, zadnje nekaj dni dobivam vprašanja glede samega Orochi koncerta, ali bo ali ne bo, zato tudi ta objava na blogu. Moram reči, in govorim v imenu vseh Touhoujevcev, da smo bili še kak teden nazaj razočarani nad odzivi na prvi J-Rock bend v Sloveniji. Vendar, ko se je nekako začelo logično razmišljanje med nekaterimi, so ugotovili, da koncerta za 12 ljudi ne bo. Pričeli so delati reklamo, prosit prijatelje, da se koncerta udeležijo in v roku nekaj dni smo imeli nenadoma prijavljenih 60 udeležencev in številke še rastejo, vendar ne tako eksponentno kot bi bilo to potrebno. Vsem, ki ste se tako potrudili za ta koncert se zelo zahvaljujemo, saj ste to naredili na lastne roke brez, da bi vas rabili sploh kaj prositi, res ponovno hvala!

Tukaj pa je sedaj del v kateremu vam moramo žal iz Društa Touhou sporočiti slabe novice. Kot nekateri že veste smo se med pripravo koncerta Orochi v Gali Hali 15.04.2011, dogovarjali z Kohaku Music, da si Slovenija lahko že v prihajajočemu poletju obeta še marsikatero znano ime iz J-rock scene, če se koncerta skupine Orochi udeleži vsaj 100 ljudi. Na žalost, kolikor izgleda do tega ne bo prišlo in trenutna odločitev samega Kohakuja je, da bodo Orochiji prvi in zadnji koncert, vsaj za nekaj časa, ker Slovenija še ni pripravljena na J-rock.

Priznamo, da smo bili tudi v Društvu Touhou skeptični na začetku, ob prvih posnetkih skupine Orochi, ki so krožili po Youtubeu, vendar pa se je ob začetku Evropske turneje izkazalo, da so fantje resnično zavihali rokave in se pripravili na turnejo, kar je razvidno tudi iz spodnjega posnetka.

Komentarji nekaterih youtube uporabnikov, ki so jih videli v živo:

Orochiji so bili očitno prava izbira za prvi japonski koncert in ustvarjanje J-rock zgodovine v Sloveniji.
Zato vse, ki bi vas zanimalo, še enkrat pozivamo, da si čim prej rezervirate vstopnico na naši spletni strani.
