    Comment from amazarashi’s Hiromu Akita

    “We will head on an Asia tour together with Aimer. Whatever feelings and experiences we may face – whether its new encounters or reencounters, going to new places or revisiting them, succeeding or failing, having fun or feeling regret – I am excited for what’s to come. I hope to understand through this experience how our music resonates with those outside Japan, or if it doesn’t.”
