(English follows.)
またまたコンニチハ! 7月7日は七夕の日。織姫と彦星が大空でデートする日。でも、今年の七夕は違うのよ。私達が『オデュッセイア』をリリースした林拓と東京で出会う日なの。そう、彼がライヴをするのよ! すごく楽しみ! 待ちきれないわ! あなたもぜひ来てね! 会場は落合SOUP。ライヴの詳細はこちらをどうぞ。

でも、林拓が好きな人たちは私達だけじゃないわ。友達から聞いたんだけど、先日は松山晋也さんが『CDジャーナル』で彼のことをとても良く書いてくれたそうなのよ。すごいわね! 松山さんはなんて素晴しい人! そういえば、彼も『ユリシーズ』ではステキな原稿を書いていたわ。

7月7日はぜひビューティフルなイヴニングを過ごしましょう。林拓の音楽とともに! ありがとう! またね!

Hello again!  The 7th July is the day of the Festival of the Weaver.  It's when Vega and Altair have a date in the big sky.  But the day of this year is different.  It's the day when we meet with Taku Hayashi, the artist of "Odyssey", in Tokyo.  Yes, he'll play live then at SOUP, Ochiai!  How exciting!  Can't wait!  Come and join us!  For further details, please visit
Incidentally, this event is presented by ULYSSES and Reconquista (ULYSSES' friend record shop).  We all love Taku Hayashi and his magical album "Odyssey" very much, as you have known well.

However, we are not the only ones who love Taku Hayashi.  According to a friend of mine, Shinya Matsuyama, a famous music critic, wrote a good review on Taku the other day for the magazine called "CD Journal".  Great!  What a wonderful guy Mr. Matsuyama is!  I remember, he always wrote nice things for "ULYSSES" too.

Guys, let's spend a beautiful evening together on the 7th July.  In enjoying the music of Taku Hayashi!  Thank You!  See you very soon!

Here's the article on the exhibition, appeared in Asahi Shimbun (One of the most famous daily newspapers in Japan).  I believe it's useful for you.  Thank you very much, Asahi Shimbun!

仙台のギャラリーチフリグリで、金曜日に始まったばかりの「ユリシーズ・エクスポーズド」展。ラジオ局はこの展覧会のことをニュースにしたの。朝日新聞は展覧会を取材したの。ありがとう、仙台! ユリシーズは仙台のことを愛しているわ!



"ULYSSES EXPOSED", which has just started last Friday at Gallery Chifuriguri, Sendai.  The news on the exhibition was put on the air.  A reporter from Asahi Shimbun (One of the most famous newspapers in Japan.) came to the gallery to gather news materials.  Thank you, Sendai!  ULYSSES love Sendai so much!

Last Saturday, Tsuyoshi Kawasoe did the gallery talk.  Then, Taku Hayashi played live.  Taku, who also played his 2 new songs, binded the all audience with a spell immediately.  Amazing, they say Sendai people were struck deeply by his singing and playing (I do wish I were there...).

"ULYSSES EXPOSED" is till the 24th June.  Guys, go to Gallery Chifuriguri!  Thank youuuuuuuuuu!
