There's a large part of the world that has already taken in parts of Japanese culture. However, music has always been 2 or 3 steps behind. If dispatching Japanese music to circle the globe leads to success, not only could it open paths for opportunity to expand Japan’s current declining music business, but in addition can lead to the over-all improvement of the image of Japan. I’m looking forward to the future endeavors of SYNC NETWORK JAPAN.”
