A Tour Concludes

Our tour has now both officially and unofficially closed.  After a post-tour tour to Yokohama for a filming of Sado-san's TV show, "Daime no Nai Ongakki," we are now home (well, most of us).  I experienced a commuter flight to Tokyo yesterday morning, an afternoon of tech rehearsals and a live filming in the evening, a walk through the park by the water in Yokohama, a post concert toast with the orchestra and crew and cello get-together (it was great to play with them for all 15 performances of Russian music) and my first Japanese overnight bus experience, complete with blankets, free wifi, and curtains to block out the light.  We arrived in Osaka at 7am and I had 6 hours to enjoy before my cello arrived at HPAC at 1pm.  So I enjoyed Osaka and Osaka Castle in the morning light.
