Morioka! Sendai!

Translated by Hatsumichan

??????
Good afternoon.

YUI???
It’s YUI.

????????????????
Is everyone doing well?

??23?24????????????????
I went to Morioka and Sendai on the 23rd and the 24th!

?????????????????????
“As I expected, the feeling of the air is different here,” I thought.

??????????????????
It felt very crisp (like…cool and crisp air), and the temperature was low as well.

??????????????????????????
And as I was having those thoughts, we went off to Iwate Prefectural Meeting Hall.

????????????????????????????????????
The meeting hall itself is pretty old, but because the base of the building is all rock, it seems that the hall got away with only a little damage (from the earthquake – If you didn’t know, Morioka is in the Tohoku Region where the earthquake hit).

????????????????????????????????????
A Sendai native, Martin-san, who took care of me during my debut period, told me this.

???????????????????????
In Iwate Prefectural Meeting Hall, the pearls of sound feel like they’re more detailed.

????????????????
The shape of the venue also changes the sound quite a bit.

???????????????
But it was very easy to perform there~.

????????????????????????????????????
On this day, I was really indebted to Iwate Menkoi TV’s Chiba Ayako-san.

?????????????????????????????????????
She taught me many things, and I heard the calls that they yell out for the Sansa Odori (traditional dance in Morioka) for the first time!

???????????????????????
When everyone in the venue joined their voices together, the intensity of it was amazing.

????????????????
There was a lot of information that I was curious about so it was fun!

????????????
I had a very wonderful time.

??????????????????????
At night, I ended up eating my favorite reimen? (cold noodles dipped in soup)

?????????
Thank you Morioka!!

????24??????????????
And then on the 24th was Sendai Sun Plaza Hall!!

????????????????????????
This is a place that I was also indebted to during my last tour.

??????????????????????????????????
I love Rahmen’s (comedian pair) “Gyuu tan tatatan ta tan ta~n” joke (gyuutan is “beef tongue,” a specialty dish in Sendai)

???????????????????
so I remember it every time I come to Sendai.

????????????????????????????
It comes out on Rahmen’s “Fushigi no Kuni no Nipon no Miyagi-ken” (“Miyagi Prefecture in the Wonderland of Japan” – play on “Alice in Wonderland” (?????????))

??????????????????????????????????????
I’ve gone off topic, but anyway, in Sendai, I was also indebted to someone called Honma Akihiko!

?????????????????????????????????????????
He also took care of me on the previous tour, and I was once again able to hear a lot of fun stories from him.

?????????????????????????
The seats for the audience were also close to the stage so I was really happy to feel this sense of unity with everyone.

?????????????????
Thank you for all your warm voices!!

?????????
Thank you Sendai!!

????????????????
I ended up eating beef tongue too?

???????
Morioka ? Sendai!!

?????????????????????
Thank you for the extremely wonderful times we had.

??????????????????????????????????
I was really able to relax in the very warm and gentle atmosphere.

?????????????????????????????
To everyone who rushed over for me, really, thank you very much!!

?????????????
Today is Kanagawa Prefectural Hall!!

?????????????????
I hope that you will all enjoy it.

????????????
Please favor me!!

????????????????????????????????????
The next day, we went to the elementary schools and junior high schools in the town of Minamisanriku, which we have visited before.

??????????????????????????????????
Since we had already met once before, I was very happy that it felt like I was going to meet a friend.

????????????????????????????
As an expression of gratitude, everyone sang their school song for me in loud voices with beautiful smiles on their faces.

????????????????
I was moved by all the spirit that came out of them.

????????????????????????????????????
Everyone in Isatomae Elementary School, Natari Elementary School, and Utatsu Junior High School, thank you very much!!

?????????????????????????????
To Principle Abe, who, regardless of being under medical care, came to see me at Utatsu Junior High,

???????????????
I truly thank you very much.

??????????????????????????????
It’s getting cold very quickly, so let’s all be careful of our health.

???????????
Well then, well then, Adieu Tohoku! (Northern region of Japan where Morioka and Sendai are located)

YUI

?????????????
I’m so thankful for these wonderful meetings!!

?????
Well then, well then.
