Before the New Year arrives...

Hi everyone. I'm sorry I haven't updated my blog for a long time!

I had quite busy schedule from the beginning of October until middle December.
Well, I had so many wonderful experiences in each venue and would have loved to share them here, but I didn't have enough time and energy. (when it comes to write something, i'm quite slow...(-_-;))
After I came back home 10 days ago, I've been just lazy, and now I feel so guilty, so I will try to write my important experiences of the last three months one by one, maybe a month by an article. Please be patient!

Also I would like to apologize that there was a major problem with my official website early this month that some people couldn't access at all. My web master put the state back to the previous one, even before I updated many sections of the site. So it shows some old information and many things should be updated again. We will try to do it as soon as possible.

In Japan (maybe as many other countries), we have a tradition to clean the whole house before the end of the year in order to welcome the pleasant new year. Although I'm living in Germany, I try to follow the Japanese tradition as well.

In the meantime, I wish you all happy holidays and a wonderful new year 2012, may it be peaceful, successful and full of beautiful music and love! d(^_^d)

yours,
Kotaro
