Alpha999 // at Aki no Matsuri 2022

Especially for Aki no Matsuri, a yearly convention based in Winterthur, Alpha999 (existing out of solo vocalist TAKA and the 999’z member band) came all the way from Tokyo to play a live show on the first evening of the event.

We traveled all the way to Switzerland to catch their performance, and of course we took some photos while we were there.

You can find these photos on our photography portfolio “Arlequin Photography”, here:


Alpha999 // Aki no Matsuri 2022


Misaki is the owner of Angry Juice Official, a small company that creates handmade plushies in a kawaii style.
Her style has been influenced by ヴィジュアル系 (Visual Kei), cosplay, anime and other elements of Japanese popculture.

For Arlequin she is mainly active as a photographer during live shows, but she also occasionally helps out as a translator for the Dutch version of the project and certain aspects of Arlequin Creations.

She speaks Dutch on a native level, but also understands English.

雪 (Yuki) is the owner and driving force behind Arlequin.
She originally started the project in 2009 as a photographer under the name of Arlequin Photography, but developed an interest in journalism and translation ever since. Because of these interests interviews and reviews were added to the project, until it eventually hit the limits as a "photographer" in 2021, and Arlequin Magazine was added to the mix.

雪 (Yuki) is a native Dutch speaker with a graphic design degree, which means she is also the main person behind Arlequin Creations.
After all these years she is still the main person who does interviews the interviews and live photos that you see on Arlequin, but also a large chunk of the reviews and behind-the-scenes work and communication goes through her.

She speaks Dutch and English on a native level, but also understands Japanese and German.
