Bob James recently visited Fukushima for the “Music for Tomorrow” benefit concert series. While there James had the opportunity to chat with singer, song writer, composer, and former lead singer for ‘Off Course’, Kazumasa Oda.
It was another step in the continuing effort of the area to recover from the 2011 disaster, which left the area virtually uninhabitable. But with each day, the future continues to grow brighter.
