Taking place every year in July is the biggest European gathering celebrating Japanese culture: the world-famous Japan Expo Paris. On this occasion, many musical groups, including idols, made the trip. BANZAI JAPAN’s members were all present for the 2018 edition! We were able to follow them inside the festival throughout their concerts but also during their visit of Paris on Sunday, July 8th! Here is a small summary of our day trip with the members in our capital city!
There are many places in Paris that fascinate tourists, and it is very difficult to check everything out in one day. We had the opportunity to chaperon the members of idol group BANZAI JAPAN in several famous spots after a short interview in the lobby of their hotel near Charles De Gaulle airport.
Our first stop in the City of Lights was none other than the cathedral of Notre-Dame. From there, we stopped at the Pont Neuf, the Louvre Pyramid, the Champs-Elysées along with the Arc de Triomphe nearby, and finally ended the day at the Trocadero for the Eiffel Tower. The girls were able to make tons a memories along with many photos and selfies despite the heat that struck the capital that day.
Our team really enjoyed this trip day and we are ready to reiterate the experience with other groups in the years to come!
