…and bought a ticket for our extra show… not supposed to have any shows today, but we couldn’t resist… I know I HAVE to see “Mugen no Hane” as many times as possible! And “Sha La La” too! And that VTR! And the drums beating! And the make up scene, Tottsu singing Sha La La, the shadow scene, the adlibs, etc etc etc…. But I know each time I see a show, I have to endure a few minutes of sniffing towards the end… Watching close up with binocs, the expressions of Tono and Tottsu, one is sure to be moved ne. If you’re going for Enbujo’09, please do not forget to bring your binocs!
We wanted to check out if the 1st Floor 3rd row seats were still available at the Harajuku shop, but when we got there at about 12pm, we found that it’s already sold out. Of coz, who wouldn’t grab it when the price was reduced to only 49,000 yen for 2 tix! The boss at the shop told us they are left with only 1 tix at 2nd Floor 4th row, but there are 2 of us, so he kindly helped us to call their Shibuya branch. And hora~ there’re 2 tix for 2nd Floor 5th row (2nd last row) center, selling for only 5,000 yen each! The price was drastically reduced since it’s the last
day hour!! Mind you, the show starts at 1pm!
Quickly, we paid for our tix, and ran/walked really fast to Harajuku station – through that crowd! It was the usual Takeshitadori crowd, so you can imagine how hard it is to get through the entire mountain of people!! By the time we reached the train pavement, we were panting… Then we took a stop down to Shibuya – again it’s “mountain people mountain sea” – and walked through that famous X-junction, found the shop with the help of a small map the boss gave us. Hurriedly grabbed our tix, back to the station, and then realised we didn’t know how to get to Higashiginza from there LOL. So we had to ask the train station guy, and after another chicken-and-duck talk, and changing trains twice, we finally got to Higashiginza. Up the stairs, through the streets and 2 traffic lights, around the building, into the theatre, to the toilet, and straight to our seats (which were right in the middle and had a superb view of the whole stage!). It was only a couple of minutes before Hiromi walked in with his violin… *Phew* We made it! XDDD
We didn’t even have time to eat before the show, so we ate our rice rolls (my nattou roll) during the intermission. And it was only after that that we noticed there were new stage photos!! We had run past them at the beginning lol… There are 20 stage photos in this first batch – 12 Takki and 8 Jrs (one per Jr). Number 2 is chou kakkoii ne!!! No. 2 (hitting drum), 3 (holding camera), 6 (chuushingura) & 12 (happy days segment) are new costumes, the rest were worn last year. But I also love the one of Ushiwaka – Tono looked like he was on the verge of tears u_u; Apart from that, the photo album (1,000yen each) is added to the goods list.
This is Mich who has been Mugen no Hane-ing the entire night… Kat’s asleep now by the way, so she’ll have no chance to abuse my blog fufufufu~~
