Hi! How’s it going? I hope you’re enjoying your summer vacation.

Speaking of vacation, I’m going to be in Japan next month! I’m really pumped to be back in the land of the rising sun! I can’t believe it’s already been two years.

Anyway, I was wondering if you wanted to go with me to the Crimson Rock Festival next month. I already bought two tickets, one for me and one for Kenji, but Kenji just found out that he has to work that weekend. I don’t really want to go alone, so I hope you can come with me!  Rock Jepsen and The Blues are going to perform. I heard they’re amazing live, so I’m dying to see them! What do you say?
