Beloved J-Pop kimocos duo Yanakiku was back for their 4th J-Pop Summit Festival appearance in San Francisco, and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to interview them again before watching their mini-concert. Yana and Kiku looked and sounded better than ever, and we cannot wait to see them back next year!
