I’ve seen young Japanese behavior change everywhere. They don’t like being dirty. It’s not appealing to them to watch concerts in the rain soaking wet and getting muddy in the open air.

A dream I wish to have in the night most isn’t about dating a Hollywood star, or making a great hit with my song. It’s not about my parents saying to me with tears “We were wrong. We’re sorry.” either. It’s about numbers. I once saw a woman on TV who won 4 million dollars by the lottery with the numbers she had seen in her dream.
