Live Shows at Japanese Bound!

Never had the chance to catch a live kinbaku show in Tokyo? Wish you’d been in the audience at historic performances “back in the day?” (Here, for example, is an ad for a 1996 show in which Randa Mai (left) and Akechi Denki (right) appeared together.) Well, we at Japanese Bound are scouring Japan for performance footage so we can bring shows to you as digital downloads (and for less than the cost of a seat in Japan; tickets for the Akechi/Randa show started at 3,500 yen, or $32 at today’s exchange rate.) Check out our new “live show” category:  We’ve got live-performance DVDs by Miura Takumi and Randa Mai now and we’ll be adding more!
