Kana Nishino: Love Collection Tour ~pink & mint~

16 Aug

lctpam14Two days ago Kana updated her website with the details of her annual Spring tour. My 2014 Japan trip will be based on her tour, so her schedule will determine how I plan my trip. This years tour is called Love Collection Tour ~pink & mint~, named after the greatest hits albums she is releasing on 9.4.

Tour Dates
◆ 2014/03/08 (Sat) Nagoya
◇ 2014/03/09 (Sun) Nagoya
◆ 2014/03/15 (Sat) Fukuoka
◇ 2014/03/16 (Sun) Fukuoka
◆ 2014/03/21 (Fri.) Miyagi
◇ 2014/03/22 (Sat) Miyagi
◆ 2014/03/29 (Sat) Hokkaido
◇ 2014/03/30 (Sun) Hokkaido
◆ 2014/04/05 (Sat) Osaka
◇ 2014/04/06 (Sun) Osaka
◆ 2014/04/12 (Sat) Yokohama
◇ 2014/04/13 (Sun) Yokohama

With only 12 dates this is going to be tricky. For comparison her Spring 2013 tour had 26 dates.

My Spring Break is 3.22-3.31, so it’s either Miyagi or Hokkaido. I’m pretty sure Hokkaido is impossible.  I like traveling, but Kana + Hokkaido is kind of a weird combination. Miyagi is much closer to Tokyo, but the dates could be a problem depending upon my class schedule. If I have a class on Thursday, I wouldn’t arrive in Japan until Saturday afternoon. If that is the case I would have to fly to Tokyo and then take a domestic flight to Sendai. When I flew from Tokyo to Fukuoka last year it was somewhat confusing, but the only other option would be to fly to Tokyo and then take a train or bus to Miyagi, which probably wouldn’t get me there fast enough. All of her concerts are on Sat + Sun, except for the Miyagi dates which are Fri + Sat, so that is also a little unlucky, since that automatically cuts the Friday concert. The tour dates aren’t ideal, but at least I have a few options.

Update 11.14: I’ve decided to go to the Yokohama concerts in April. I’m only taking one class that quarter, so I can take random vacations whenever I want muhahaha. In fact I can skip a class during a random week and take a two week vacation right in the middle of the school year! Not like I condone ditching class. One time when I was in high school I ditched the last period of the day and drove to the beach with three of my friends. I ended up crashing my brother’s car. Anyway, now that I’ll be going to the concerts in Tokyo I don’t have to stress about going to Sapporo, which is what I was going to have to do if I went during Spring Break (Sendai wasn’t going to work because I have a Thursday class next quarter).
