A humanitarian concert for Japan in Dubrovnik
Izumi Yamaguchi is one of the most popular Japanese celebrities and her performances on the Japanese market contributed to the promotion of Croatia in that Far Eastern country. She was very impressed by the concerns and endeavours of the Croatian people to help repair damage from the earthquake.
- I live in Tokyo and I haven’t felt the horrors of the disastrous shaking of the earth in Japan, but we are all aware of the severity of the event. I was very surprised by messages from children I saw at the Japanese Embassy in Zagreb. I recorded them all and when I return to Japan, I will publish them in my blog - says Izumi Yamaguchi.
Jelka Tepšić, the Director of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, announced that Izumi Yamaguch was to hold a concert as part of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival on 4 August and all the earnings will go to earthquake victims in Japan.

Japanska estradna zvijezda, glumica i pjevačica Izumi Yamaguchi nastupila je u dubrovačkim Lazaretima i otpjevala Četiri stađuna, skladbu velikog Zdenka Runjića. Rekla je kako će kad se vrati u Tokio naučiti još hrvatskih pjesama. U to nema sumnje, budući da je Yamaguchi kupila CD Tereze Kesovije.

This very nice photo taken in front of The Kwansei Gakuin University in Kobe tells us more than words can express. Musical interpretations of the famous Croatian tune U boj, u boj by Japanese choirs are indeed of amazing quality. The song is known in this country since 1919. For more details see U BOJ web page where you can also listen to it.
