Check out some pics from the event hall and of the program manual.

After purchasing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D for the Nintendo 3DS over the summer, I was really hoping that I would have a chance to go the concert that was to be held in the fall to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of this epic Nintendo series. After registering the title online, gamers were given a chance to win an opportunity to go to this symphony concert performed by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra.

Somehow, I was lucky enough to win a chance to go to this concert and enjoy this amazing event. In Japan, there were two shows on October 10, one being held from 2:00 PM to roughly 4:00 PM, and the other (which I attended) being held from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM. Not only was the amazing orchestra group in the house, Shigeru Miyamoto, Eiji Aonuma, Koji Kondo, and Shoko Nakagawa - the Japanese idol who is crazy about Zelda - all made appearances at the event. While taking pictures inside the venue was strictly prohibited, I managed to snap a few shots of the outside of the hall as well as the program from the concert.

Ah, so cool! I hope the concerts in Los Angeles and London look and sounds just as good.
