On 12th April, Yuri’s Night held in Tokyo by Team HAKUTO. We celebrated the night with “trio Mu*” ( a classical music trio which privides instruments, dreams and hapiness to the children in Cambodia.) and Mr. Kazuma Yamane ( non-fiction writer, and the author of the movie “Hayabusa: Harukanaru Kikan”).
The theme of the night was “DREAM”.
Fans of HAKUTO and the members of the team gathered together talking about “dreams” was what we hoped recently.
The begining of this month, we held a lesson with a public elementary school in Saitama.
Their science teacher found out the article of Hakuto on the newspaper and this visit came true.
