Hi, I'm Haruo, I was born and raised in this Kyoto house, and my partner, Kazuko was born and raised in Osaka. I've been running a music store for more than 30 years, and now started 'FREEK' at the store in this house. Kazuko just has finished the second university for studying applied linguistics at Kobe City University of Foreign Studies. We both love music and meeting people from different countries and cultures. We also love cats and dogs. We have two grown up children, one is living in Osaka and the other is living in LA.
