-- Spring & Autumn Tours in Japan Every Year

Masuo gets back to Japan every spring and autumn in recent years and stays for about three months each time to perform quite a number of shows at various venus. He formed his own band in 2012 for the first time in more than three decades, named "Power Spot". Then a new band "MAGATAMA" in 2016, and then "YOSHIAKI MASUO GROUP" early in 2023, which is still active (as of autumn 2023 ). Masuo also plays in various different coonfigurations with various musicians.
Japan tour dates information is basically available on the Japanese-language Schedule&News page of this site. But if you have any question about it, please contact website administrator Kaco.
