In 2002, Tara Jane O'Neil toured Japan for the first time with Daniel Littleton of Ida. Five more tours to Japan ensued over the next decade, which captivated each audience member across the country with her impassioned performances. Although she has shared the bill with numerous Japanese singers and performers, Kazumi Nikaido has shared the stage more than any other musician in Japan. On O'Neil’s fourth Japanese tour in 2008, she requested to make a record with Nikaido, and a collaborative was later materialized in Kyoto and Lake Biwa with recording engineer Takeshi Azuma. The self-titled release includes impressive free-form sessions at Azuma's Tonraum Studios and Lake Biwa. Also included in the album are live sessions from O'Neil's fifth Japanese tour of 2010 which were recorded at the Guggenheim House in Kobe.
