Japan By Ear

Japan By Ear

The Story

In 2009 we visited Japan as tourists.  We travelled on a shoestring budget, avoiding expensive tourist locations where possible and spent our time on our feet, paying attention to the sights and sounds.

The Sounds

From Buddhist chanting at the Chion-in temple, to the sounds of modern transport on the Shinkansen.  We heard rural and urban Japan, across Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara, often within surprising proximity of each other.
