I also waited 2 hours! at check in counter where Tiesto might come; finally,
he showed up with Annika and Jordan.
There were time to conversation with Tijs and Annika. I asked them come to Japan for sightseeing.
They said they loved to come to Japan for their sightseeing someday. They did come to Japan for heir Honeymoon!!! in November 2019.
They stayed Japan for almost 2 weeks!! and they visited in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka. I was so glad they come to Japan for their honeymoon !!!
