August 1971, press conference before the Hakone Open Air Festival in Japan, by Koh Hasebe.
Nick Mason, from his book Inside Out: “Of all the overseas tours, our first visit to Japan in August 1971 was a particular success. The record company organised a press conference (something which we generally hate) and presented us with our first gold records. Although these were completely bogus, as they had not been earned through sales, we nonetheless appreciated the gesture.
“The real reason for the success of this tour was an outdoor show at Hakone. Not only was this a beautiful venue set in countryside a couple of hours outside Tokyo, but a festival audience in Japan was a lot less inhibited than one at an indoor show.”
