Shonan no Kaze (湘南乃風, Shonannokaze) is a four-member reggae group from Japan, mostly known for their 2006 hit single Junrenka. The name of the band means "A Breeze from Shonan" (a resort destination in Japan). RED RICE and HAN-KUN both started to form a band together while they were in Shonan. RED RICE had had a fascination with reggae and hip-hop, while HAN-KUN was originally a dancer from Shounan. HAN-KUN first heard reggae when, by chance, he heard Buju Banton's Untold Stories while driving. They met SHOCK EYE, a hip-hop DJ, and Wakadanna (who was managing a reggae bar).
