Why I Go To A Johnny’s Concert More Than One Time

The actual concert itself was all-new, with many mistakes, as Nagoya was the fist stop on a 3 month long tour. Fast-forward to the weekend after and my best friend Meghan and I are on our way to Sapporo, a … Continue reading Why I Go To A Johnny’s Concert More Than One Time
