The choir and the orchestra of the Bach Collegium Japan perform the St John's Passion with a small ensemble – as was customary in the composer’s life time – under Masaaki Suzuki, former student of one of the nestors of authentic interpretation, Ton Koopman. One of the greatest musical treatments of the suffering and death of Jesus Christ receives a performance that is musically precise and stylistically close to what we now know of Bach's ideal. The Bach Collegium Japan has been regarded for some years now as a real discovery among baroque ensembles specializing in the performance of sacred music from the Baroque.

Gaultier Hits Tokyo to Launch Japan Apparel Collection

Jean Paul Gaultier held court at the French embassy in Tokyo on Wednesday to launch his collection for Japanese retail giant Seven & i Holdings. The project is Gaultier’s first fashion foray outside couture since he discontinued his own pret-a-porter line last year.
The designer said he was overwhelmed by the work involved in producing luxury ready-to-wear and the need to churn out several collections a year.
“I wanted to concentrate on what I like. What do I like? To make couture. To make pret-a-porter also, but not like the way it is now, because now you have to make pre-collection, cruise, all that, you know, which is a lot a lot of demand. And it doesn’t really stop…which is not good, because we have no time to think,” Gaultier told a press conference. “So I prefer to be free of that, and to make some capsules and some experiences and some new adventures that give me more freedom. And in that way I feel more free and more energetic and a little more excited.”
The line, called Jean Paul Gaultier for Sept Premieres, goes on sale Wednesday online and at Seibu and Sogo department stores and Ito Yokado general stores across Japan.

Jean Paul Gaultier Line Set to Debut in Japan

TOKYO—Jean Paul Gaultier is about to bring some Parisian flair to Japan.
The French designer’s affordably-priced collection for Japanese retail giant Seven & i Holdings will hit the company’s Ito Yokado, Sogo and Seibu stores on Oct. 1. The lineup, which includes striped boatneck jersey tops and a trench coat in a coated fabric, will also be available through a new online portal that will allow customers to pick up their purchases from their local 7-Eleven convenience store.
The Gaultier launch is part of Seven & i Holdings’ broader push into private label clothing and collaborations with big-name designers. The company is launching a new fashion brand called Sept Premières and Gaultier’s designs will comprise a capsule collection within the range called Jean Paul Gaultier for Sept Premières for two seasons. The retailer plans to hire other designers to do future collections for the brand.
Sept. Premières is a French take on the “Seven Premium” brand. Seven & i uses the Seven Premium brand on a whole range of private label goods from rice balls and white bread to underwear and stockings.
“It’s a little more expensive than regular [convenience store] things, but very good,” said Mari Tsutsumi, director and executive officer of original

Things are looking bleak for the members of rock band Tennis Pro. They've been struggling to connect to an audience in the Seattle music scene, with a recent run of shows drawing sparse crowds and uninspiring day jobs that are quickly eclipsing their dreams. So when an opportunity arises to take their act on the road to Japan – where the allure of a second chance at recognition awaits them – they can t refuse. Embarking on their Tokyo musical odyssey, the guys experience all the thrills and setbacks of taking their music into unknown territory (at least to them) and in the process learn a thing or two about themselves. It s just possible they won't fade away.BIG IN JAPAN is a comedic rock 'n roll road movie based loosely on actual events and told with rollicking humor and catchy tunes. Director John Jeffcoat (OUTSOURCED) utilizes a fresh narrative approach and guerrilla production style, with music and film intersecting with two cultures to reveal simple, oftentimes hilarious, universal truths.
