Day one of Fuji Rock Festival 2016 is finished. The weather was great, and so were the two main acts on the Green Stage, Sigur Ros and James Blake. Beck and Wilco play tonight and it looks like clear skies again. Follow the Japan Times’ live blog at jtfuji.tumblr.com and on Instagram, and read about the history of Fuji Rock Festival.
