Recently, I went to my strategy professor’s gig in Shibuya. According to my Japanese classmates, this guy, Ken Kusunoki, is famous is his field. He’s written a best-selling book on strategy, gives talks and interviews (we’ve since his face on posters at Roppongi) and he’s also advisor to Uniqlo CEO. From his resume, one would imagine he’s super serious, a guy in a suit, but he’s the chillest professor ever, tall and buff (goes to gym often I reckon), wears jeans to class and a bassist and singer for his band, BLUEDOGS.
When he performs, he’d invite his students., so I went to his gig again over the weekend, located at Take Off7, a venue on the basement floor at the building just behind the H&M Shibuya. The kind of venues I saw on Japanese movies like Nana. Underground, dim lights, loud music. Only the crowd is so proper 😆 Anyway, proud to know a professor who’s so serious about work yet has passion on things like this.
You should have seen the band. They play the kind of rock songs the baby boomers appreciate and they’ve spent decades playing, so naturally, they were sick! Things I’ll cherish Tokyo by 🙂
