30th of April 2013, We held the full moon party “Suzunari night” which was a joint hosting between bar half moon OK and bar Getto. A great number of people came to those 2 tiny bars, the people overflowed into the street, drank a large quantity of alcohol and had such a crazy night, better than in Thailand.
After the guitarist and I toasted with the cocktail XYZ, we planed that we would buy bar Getto. I told this to all the customers of the half moon OK bar and I had 3 persons who told me that if I want to have a bar, they could fund me all the money for starting the bar, for 2 weeks.
The great place, the great partner and the fund, all the things I needed to open the bar ware completed, then when I had no memory because I drank too much at that party, I seemed to have declared that we will start the bar involuntary.
From that day, we borrowed money from one person, we paid money to the owner and landlord, we made a contract with them and got the key of the bar. We cleaned inside of the bar and set the DJ booth, sound system and a Washlet (a toilet that washes the user automatically) in the toilet.
After only 1 month and a few days since we toasted with the cocktail XYZ, we really opened our own bar. We didn’t change the pronunciation of the name 月灯 in Japanese but we changed from the Japanese Kanji to the alphabet and put “h” between G and e. The bar was now called Ghetto. The meaning is the moon light in Japanese but it means “as you know” in English.
