When I found out that Stylesightâ€™s Tokyo correspondent Mariko was covering the three-day Fuji Rock Festival in Naeba, Japan for Stylesightâ€™s new Streets and Events category, I was understandably jealous. Then I saw the lineup and my jealousy became as big as Mt. Fuji itself: Justice, Peter Bjorn & John, The Shins, Yo La Tengo, Electrelane, Feist, Blonde Redhead, Deerhoof and not one but THREE performances by Jonathan Richman! Câ€™mon! Then I saw the pictures and now my jealousy is just out of control. From the looks of it, the festival was superior to anything the U.S. or U.K has to offer, with a laid-back hippie feel, a ridiculous amount of performers and an idyllic setting nestled in the mountains (one stage was only accessible by cable car!).
