After the Country Festival in Kita-Karuizawa on the Sunday, we had a long drive back down to Kawasaki in Kanagawa Prefecture to open our stall on the Monday at the Keihin Rock Festival. It was the first time in over a year for us to setup stall amoungst familiar stallholder faces within the Japanese festival scene. The weather was considerably warmer than that of the previous day's event up in the mountains and not a single line dancer was in site.

The usual japanese style food stalls were there to give us a taste of what we had been missing. The music lineup was made up of former members of famous Japanese bands from the 70's and 80's who are either solo or have since formed new bands. This drew in crowds of a slightly more mature age.
