Japanese kimono-cosplay duo YANAKIKU will return to San Francisco’s J-Pop Summit at the Fort mason Center on July 23 and 24, 2016.
YANAKIKU made their American performance debut at the Japanese cultural festival in 2014, and they returned last year to host J-Pop Summit’s Ryokan Pavilion. This year, singers YANA and KIKU will appear at the Iichiko USA booth to introduce attendees to Japan’s best-selling shochu.
YANAKIKU will serve as judges for the event’s cosplay masquerade and perform a live concert, giving USA fans the first chance to hear new songs “Kira Kira Tokio” and “VIVA! Jinsei chindouchuu” (“VIVA! Crazy Life”) along with fan-favorites “FUJIYAMA DISCO” and “NINJA IROHA” from their 2015 album YANAKIKU NO ENBAN.
