Put some fire into your Fuji Rock
Fuji Rock has been going on for a long time, and one man has been bringing the fire, and the circus, to the festival for 21 years running. That man is Genin Makoto, the affable fire-show maestro and all around entertainer who leads the Fuji Rock Daidogei team.
As quick with a joke as he is with an unexpected magic trick, Makoto is a master of the busker’s art: grabbing someone’s attention, holding that person’s attention, and convincing that person that in the end what they saw was worth a bit of their cold, hard-earned cash. And Makoto’s breezy banter and remarkable flaming torch juggling skills would have even Ebenezer Scrooge loosening his purse strings.
He will be performing around the festival for the whole weekend, don’t miss your chance to see what he can do. And since Yesterday was his birthday don’t forget to pay your busker double.
