This coming weekend (September 14-16) will see e-zuka and Takita playing together Friday night, and Takita on Saturday night.
Friday night, e-zuka and Takita will be joining Kyosokarma — vocalist Taka, shamisen player KIJI — in Shinjuku. Unfortunately, tickets for this apparently went on sale in July, and it’s sold out.
Tickets might still be available for Takita’s Saturday live at the Osaka Jack Lion, where he’ll be joining guitarist Yonekawa Hideyuki, drummer Kawaguchi Chisato and keyboardist Yabuki Taku.
You can submit a request for tickets here. Be sure to include your name, your mobile phone number and number of tickets needed. Tickets are 4,000 yen in advance.
e-zuka will be joining Takita Isamu for the last two dates of his Rising Moon Crescent tour which will be at The Live Station in Tokyo.
Tickets are still available for both shows via eplus. For more details and the ticket links, check out Takita’s blog.
Takita has teamed up with BLUE ROSE to produce four pendants and five rings featuring a cross designed by Takita himself. Here’s an example of one pendant and one ring:
The pendants range in price from 12,960~22,680 yen, while the rings run from 12,960~17,280 yen. The pendants are silver while the rings are silver or silver with gold plating. All feature cubic zirconia stones. Ring sizes range from 5~23.

Takita posted in his blog today that he will be going into the studio to record for himself in April, and will have another Rising Moon tour in early June. He did not specify that there would be a new CD, but we can hope! Plus, this implies there will be no Granrodeo tour before mid-June at the earliest.
He did add that the tour will get no further west than Osaka, so those of us in western Japan will have to go east to see the Rising Moon shows.
