“Davy Jones Memorial Bench” has been set up in Shiba Park!!!
It has taken a long time since we sent the application in July. The application was accepted and we were granted permission to dedicate the bench from Tokyo Metropolitan on September and on December 21st we dedicated Davy Jones Memorial Bench to Shiba Park. The bench was set up at the best location because behind the bench there are Tokyo Tower and the TV TOKYO studio where the program “Ohayoh Studio” in which Davy Jones appeared in several times was filmed.
There will be a fan meeting for the bench dedication on January 25th.
Davy have visited Japan 18 times from 1968 to 2010 and always brought us happiness and laughter. It’s our turn to give him our everlasting love back. We are longing to have a place to celebrate and remembering Davy in Japan. Davy used to appear on TV program “Ohayoh studio” of TV TOKYO (name of TV station) near Shiba Park. So we are planning to dedicate The Davy Jones Memorial Bench with small message plate on it there. We held the meeting to achieve this project in Sep. 7th in Tokyo. We’ve got a permission to donate the bench to Shiba Park from Tokyo Metropolitan. The bench is expected to put there within 2 months.
