Lake BIWA is the largest lake in Japan, located in Kansai area.
Initially those area was developed as ski resort area, then in the summer time, we could enjoy jazz festival there !!
At that time, several jazz festivals run all night !! NEMU JAZZ INN as well. Very good days.
Frankly speaking, it is better to go such place in a long time together with friends. I went BIWAKO VALLEY JAZZ FESTIVAL in 1984 together with friends.
It was on July 28th, 1984, started at 20:00, closed at 5:00, the next day.
The year 1984 is still in the peak of FUSION. NANIWA EXPRESS is the representative for such boom especially in Kansai area. Incredible power and energy !!
I don’t remember what time they performed, maybe in midnight.
Even though some sleepiness came to us at midnight, once NANIWA EXPRESS appeared then blew such one off immediately and completely.
YEAR !! We were so young !!!
No, no. Still we can enjoy all night festival as far as arranged !! They gave us consistent energy and power !!
