Joe Hisaishi recently announced its schedule for its 2009 tour in Japan!! OMG!!! I so want to go!! hahaha I can’t read Japanese so I’m just using an online translator. Forgive me if there are mistakes! He will be doing two different programs:

  • Program A – 1st Symphony, Departures, Kiki’s Delivery Service and others
  • Program B – The End of the World, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and others

I would LOVE to see both performances! I’m sure it would be amazing…hmm…*thinking* Who’s interested?? =)

Btw, if you want to have a taste of its music then try here – quite a few of his recent albums!! My recent favourite? Departures’ OST (also known as Okuribito)!!
