When I was planning my trip to California, I’m going to be honest – I wasn’t even thinking of going to Coachella at all.

Zushi Fes ’15

Zushi Fes is a music festival held every summer at Zushi beach, and this year I decided to check it out with my friend Mika. From Kamakura station, we took a free shuttle to the venue.
