Everyone’s busy. It’s the end of the year. Come listen to me talk about how we spend December in Japan while you listen to a mochi-pounding event in the background on binaural mics. There is cleaning, haircuts, paying debts and staying up all night to avoid gray hair.
The intro/outro music of Uncanny Japan is a song by Christiaan Virant (“Yi Gui” from Ting Shuo). The whole album is just gorgeous as it everything else by FM3.
The topic for this podcast just seemed right. There are so many things that coincide with Japan, such as seasonal cleaning and festivals. The moji hammering always sort of made me nervous though.
