How do you know so much about Japan?Thanks! The band just says aakibu hamasa, which is an abbreviation for "Archive Cigar." (Japanese uses a lot of abbreviations.)
Interestingly, the Japanese for cigar (葉巻きタバコ) is a combination of the Kanji characters for "leaf" and "roll-up" plus the English loan word of "tobacco" written in Kana.
