March 7, Ringebu, Norway 🇳🇴 Arnemoen Gard (Atsuko)

おはようございます。ヨーテボリの朝、ホテルの外は吹雪いてる。 泊まったホテルは簡易宿泊施設で、部屋の中にトイレ、シャワーは無く共同。そして皆が使えるキッチンが有る、というスタイル。朝9時半キッチンでサンドイッチとジュースを食べた。

Good morning. Morning in Goteborg and it was snowing outside our hotel. The hotel we stayed at was a simple accommodation facility, and there are no toilets or showers in the rooms. And there is a kitchen that everyone can use. I ate sandwiches and juice in the kitchen at 9:30 a.m.


There was a racket shop next to the hotel, so I took a look. I found a nice shirt from FILA’s tennis heritage series, but I’ll put up with it.


Left at 10:00. We had to be careful about trouble with the snow ~. Tires were spinning. Watch out for whiteouts. We took a detour and ran.

私のお気に入りパン。My favorite pastry.


The snow is getting lighter and drove more and more. We drove through Oslo and Lillehammer where was held Winter Olympics.  Arrived at the venue at 6pm. 


We used the venue’s equipments.


At the owner’s house, we had home made chicken curry for dinner. Thank you very much for the delicious food.


A young group was coming to the live and when I asked what group they were, they said “adult kindergarten”. It looks like everyone will have fun going skiing and watching Shonen Knife live performance.


March 6, Goteborg, Sweden 🇸🇪 Fangelset(Atsuko)


I don’t know because last night’s show  started early, I felt my tiredness gone. I woke up at 7 o’clock and was able to start blogging ~.


Breakfast was included, so I went to eat. Gorgeous! I ate yogurt and made a salmon sandwich for lunch on the way.


We left the hotel at 10 am and drove to Goteborg.


Risa was in front of the hotel with wooden fish.


I got a waffle at a gas station.


Salmon sandwich which I made. Delicious!


It’s very cold today. I wonder if the skin temperature sensor was dull until yesterday.


After 1pm, we were asked a few questions at the border, showed our passport, and safely entered Sweden.


It took about 6 hours to get to the venue, but the location was confusing and there seemed to be no one there, so we decided to go to the hotel and check in.


We went back to the venue. Checking lines and setting merch.


They served vegan lasagna and salad.


Outside of the venue.


We were ready for the show.



Many people came to see it even though it was a Monday. 

Thank you Goteborg!!


March 5, Austvatn, Norway🇳🇴 Odal Rock Club(Atsuko)

We left the hotel at 10 a.m. McDonald’s cheeseburger for my breakfast. The car ran and ran ~ I got sweet bread at the gas station. It was the second time to buy this pastry.  It is sweet and delicious! It’s dangerous.



Snow scenery along the way. Ken, the tour manager, ran really hard and arrived at the venue at 5pm.
Everyone says it’s cold, but for some reason I’m not that cold… Maybe it’s because I’m wearing heat tech?

会場。The venue. Odal Rock Club

見よ、このOMOTENASHI! オモテナシ!ありがとうございます。お腹が空いていたので到着後すぐサンドイッチを頂きました。

Look at this OMOTENASHI!  Thank you so much. I was hungry, so I got a sandwich as soon as I arrived.


Sound check 


Dinner was moose hamburger with mushroom gravy and vegetables. I ate it for the first time, but it was delicious without any smell.


After the show we signed on the wall of the venue.


It was the perfect hospitality.

We checked in the hotel. Everyone had  single room tonight! Good night!

March 4 Kristiansand, Norway 🇳🇴Vaktbua (Atsuko)


Naoko and I stayed at the venue. Wanted for Risa and Ken to come in the morning and loaded the equipments. Drove about an hour and arrived at the ferry terminal.


A boat trip of about three and a half hours.  Everyone was hungry, so it’s a buffet lunch on the ferry. It was very luxurious, and there’s also wine in beer. I went out deck.  Super cold and windy but feel good!


Arrived at Christian Sand. The venue was close to the port. It was small venue but punk and cool place! Off course the show was sold out. We used support band’s equipments.


I could see ferry which we took from stage.



We did quick sound check. And went to dinner. 
I ate veal steak with mashed potatoes at a nice restaurant. Sometimes when I eat beef it gives me a power.

ホテルに一旦戻ってステージの準備。会場に戻ってサポートバンドのLongfield & Super Skeletonを外から見た。中は暑そうだけど外は寒いよ。我々の出番!準備OK!

We went to the hotel for ready to the show. Back to the venue, today’s support band,  Longfield & Super Skeleton was playing. Outside was cold but inside the venue was so hot. It’s our turn.


With support band.


“Shonen Knife is coming to Kristiansand, so it was very exciting for this day.” A fan said to me.  I’m happy~Thank you!
