Turning Japaneso?

Cube Kyoto

“What the?”, I hear you say, “A Cube in Kyoto J Pan?!” Read on and find out why:
Some of you may know that I’m The Cube’s overseas development officer and that I was an integral element in setting up The Kobe Orchestra, Japans’ first and only Improvised Orchestra.
Well that isn’t he only thing that The Cube pay me in excess of $100,000 a year for. And so off East I headed to see how The Cube’s outreach program had been going. Stop number one was with Yuikiko Jukaya


who is The Cube’s right hand person in Nihhon. We had a great power lunch

Sasutsiun power

where with the help of the Honshu regional Govt. we established a rather huge Cube in central Kyoto, see

Whilst in Japan I took the opportunity to catch up with Bass player par excellence Tomoko Takahashi who was back eastside with Boyfriend Charlie. Here we all are enjoying the fine hospitality of Kyoto’s Cube Volunteers


Later on I enjoyed some more hospitality too…………………..

But that’s not the only Cube that we have established amongst our Eastern friends. Further up the Coast in Tokyo I had managed to secure funding for a smaller Cube just south of the popular Shinjuku area

Cube Tokyo

It really was a fine building and I caught a rerun of Zatoichi before it was Santory time. One thing different about Cube Japan is things ran on time! Don’t worry I’m on it..

OK Honourable Blog readers, till next time sayonnara,
