Two Surprises

One of the most memorable events in my life was a live concert of EXILE held in December, 2011. I was dying to go to the concert, but it was just before an important examination season, so my mother did not allow me to go. But she got me a ticket by surprise. Because I had not been to a live concert for two years, I cannot tell how excited I was during the event. The happy time passed so quickly, and the live concert was coming to an end. Then, the music suddenly stopped when a man dressed in the security guard appeared on the stage. It was Takashi Okamura, aka “OKAXILE” who came back to Tokyo Dome after an interval of four years. What a surprise! I still remember that I was excited very much and took me a long time to cook down after the concert. The event was full of happy surprises and its memory still makes me happy.
