Kim Hyun Joong took a successful first step in his nationwide Japan tour, his Japan Tour 2013 Unlimited.
Key East stated on January 10 that "Kim Hyun Joong successfully wrapped up his concerts in Kobe and Saitama with 20,000 fans."
The singer appeared onstage for the concerts in a time capsule following a video intro, making fans scream at his arrival. He then performed his new singles, including the promotional single Your Story from his first studio album in Japan. The album had been released in December, and at the time took over the Oricon Daily Chart.
Kim Hyun Joong then jumped into the audience, and even visited the fans sitting in the back rows. He also talked in Japanese whenever he could to communicate with his local fans.
The concert showcased a variety of performances with creative stage effects, as well as music from a live band.
Kim Hyun Joong will next tour 10 cities in Japan, including Nagoya, Fukuoka and Osaka.
