For the next 7 days, I will be following the Minneapolis band Quietdrive, across Japan. With shows in Osaka, Nagoya, and Tokyo. The drive from Tokyo to Osaka is about 7 hours long. The landscape is incredible, with factories, neighborhoods, rolling hills and lush mountains. This is nothing what I expected for some reason. It's funny how you can have an image of a country in your mind, and it's completely shattered once you arrive. Here are a few images from our first day of travel.
