Singer Yui Ibuki 伊吹唯 performing in front of Shinjuku Station exits

On the 6th of May, before I caught sight of Denis the tap dancing painter, I saw Yui Ibuki 伊吹唯 performing at the West exit of Shinjuku station (I was on my way to Yodobashi Camera to check out some camera lenses).

I thought she had a good voice.

It's been a while since I've filmed a music performance in Tokyo anyway. And this was the first time I did it with my Canon 7D.

She was also handselling her single and album.

After she was done with the song, she started packing.

I took note of her website info.

You won't see it too clearly here. But this is her official website, her blog and her twitter. And a loyal fan site who even started an English wiki entry for her (haven't been updated much though).

Yui was born on the 14th of June, 1985. If you run a search on Youtube, you'll find numerous videos of her performances.

I then headed off to Yodobashi Camera to check out the camera lenses, since I was going to Cannes in less than a month, I thought I needed some preparation to take some nice photos.

I think almost an hour and a half had passed, and I decided to make my way home.

As I walked past the South Exit of Shinjuku Station, I saw Yui again. Another ballad performed before a medium-sized crowd. The wind was strong when she sang.
