We also perform overseas once every three years as part of the TOHO WORLD MARCHING PROJECT.

In addition to participating as the “Asia/Oceania region representative”, this time they were selected as one of the top three bands (Pre-parade Honor Band), the first band from Japan to participate, and are the most respected band in America. I had the great honor of following in the parade following the Marine Band.
The parade, which lasted about two and a half hours, was met with cheers and applause from beginning to end, and reached its goal in no time.
