What is "Miwazow Festival" ?

On March 11, 2011, Japan was hit by the unprecedented big earthquake.
Even now the radioactive contamination by the nuclear accident has spread not only in Japan but also all over the world.

There are many people in the world who are threatened with the danger of life and deprived of their rights to live in peace.

A lot of people feel much distress at the sadness in the world, stand up, and do their best in different ways to make this world peaceful and better.

In such circumstances, I decided to start this festival in 2012 after thinking about what I should do as a musician for peace on earth.
A festival to heal and revitalize your body and mind that got tired by social difficulties.

Since then, with the support of great musicians, many nice staff and many beautiful customers, Miwazow Festival could have been held successfully every year.

And in fact, it's my birthday.
But this is not a festival for my birthday, a festival to celebrate all the births on earth and lives of all the people not only at the venue and also in the world.

It is not me whom is celebrated on this day, but all of YOU who are born in this world and who could live together now in the same age.

Come and join us, and let me say "L'khaym(Cheers) to Life " !
