---Profile of Azumi Inoue---

She made her debut as a singer in 1983. 3 years later, she was selected as the theme song singer in one of the Hayao Miyazaki  films, "Laputa: Castle in the sky" - which gave her the first national recognition. Over the following years, she sang numbers of anime theme songs including "My Neighbour Totoro (Tonari no Totoro)", "Stroll (Sanpo)", "A Lost Child (Maigo)" etc. 

---Profile of Yuyu---

Yuyu, a daughter of Azumi Inoue made her debut as a singer in 2012. Since she overcame childhood cancer that she developed when she was three, she's been having concerts for those children suffering from cancer. Her dream is to give those children all over the world courage and power to thrive and make everyone including their families smile via her singing, jusr like her mother. 

She has performed in many countries with her mother such as China, Taiwan, Russia, France, and America and her annual family concerts with her mother all around Japan became popular and now they have become everyone's favourite of all ages as family fun concerts.

    Hi this is Japan Day Crowdfunding Team! Unfortunately, the first project of inviting Azumi Inoue and Yuyu has failed through... BUT a failure isn't just a failure, it is a step to succeed... We Japan Day Committee have considered a lot and reopened the new PledgeMe project to receive donations in order to invite Azumi Inoue and Yuyu!!
