When in Rome, do as the Romans do.

Hello everyone, it’s been half a year. How have you been? I’ve been so busy practicing the piano that I haven’t had time to write this blog. Practicing the piano at my age won’t really lead to anything, but my body and mind crave it. As a result of following this feeling, I hardly had any time to write this blog. Haha.

Today is Sunday, and perhaps because I practiced in the community center’s piano room yesterday, I unusually felt like writing this blog from the morning. It’s currently the rainy season in Japan, but it’s already as hot as summer. The unique humidity in Japan makes it incredibly hot during this time of year. Despite this heat, today was the voting day for the Tokyo gubernatorial election, and I went to the polling station. Haha.

With the pandemic now over, the streets of Tokyo are overflowing with foreigners. There are Chinese, Koreans, people from Southeast Asia, white people, black people—travelers from all over the world. Sometimes, with all the different languages mixed together, I find myself wondering if this is really Japan. Recently, I’ve seen many people who seem to be living in Japan rather than just visiting as tourists.

In the park, there was a noisy parent and child playing with a remote-controlled car. When I listened closely, they were speaking Chinese, and I was surprised to realize they were Chinese. Japanese people don’t usually play with remote-controlled cars in the park, I thought. But why would a Chinese parent and child be playing in a Japanese park? People who are just visiting Japan wouldn’t leisurely play in a park, so I speculated that they might be staying in Japan for a longer period.

One night, when I went to a convenience store to buy alcohol, I saw a white man at the register paying for electricity and gas. A tourist wouldn’t be paying utility bills at a convenience store! So, I concluded that this white man probably lives nearby. During the pandemic, I hardly saw any foreigners, but in the past year or so, the number of foreigners living in Japan, or at least in Tokyo, has significantly increased.

I don’t agree with the recent news and online information calling for the expulsion of foreigners. However, for those who are going to live in a place for an extended period rather than just travel, I think they should live according to the local customs and rules. There’s a Japanese proverb that says, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” I would like to advise foreigners who have started living in Japan to follow Japanese living rules. If they do, I’m sure they’ll find Japan to be a wonderful country.

Hi, how is everyone? The Tokyo Olympics have just started. I’m sure there will be a lot of heated competition in various events every day from now on. I live in Tokyo, and yesterday the sound of airplanes was loud until midnight. Be quiet! I couldn’t help shouting to the sky.

As you all know, this Olympics will be held without spectators. I was expecting a quieter start, but it turned out to be a noisy one.

It seems that the number of people who were planning to come to Tokyo has been narrowed down a lot, and all those people should stay at home and listen to Japanese songs while watching the Olympics! You don’t have to listen to those famous Japanese songs. It’s pretty boring.

Instead of those songs, let’s listen to my original song! It’s pretty cool. It has a unique fun factor that English songs don’t have.

You can’t come to Japan for the Olympics this time, but if you like my music, please come and see my live performance in the future. I’ll be waiting for you. I’ll buy you a drink or two!

Happy New Year from JAPAN

Happy New Year to you all. How is everyone in the world doing? I’m sure you’re sitting at home under the call of “Stay Home” at the beginning of this year. When is the new Corona going to end? In Japan, where I live, it seems that the government has not given up on the plan to hold the Tokyo Olympics despite the current situation.
It looks like Japan will dominate the gold medals with most of the countries unable to participate. Just kidding.
At times like this, I think it is best to listen to music in my room. You can experience an unfamiliar world in the comfort of your own room. Why don’t you listen to an original song in Japanese? There are all kinds of people living in the world!
Not all songs are in English!
Let’s try listening to some Japanese songs!
Try listening to Japanese songs and you will discover something new.
It is said that even after the end of Corona, the world will not return to the way it was before. Let’s change the way we think! Change the way you live! Change the way you look at things! Would you like to listen to my music?

Music is available now. If you like it, please purchase it.

Japan is Monday.

Hello, world everyone. Japan is Monday. It’s raining. I do not want to work on such a day. I do not really want to write a blog. I want to take a relaxing bath. (Lol)

I was editing YouTube video yesterday on Sunday. I did not do anything for a while, so I made about 5 videos. I am already tired and I do not want to do anything today. (Lol)

No one will read this blog even if I try my best. What should I do? But the song I composed is cool! Sometimes it is good to listen to Japanese songs. I will teach you if you do not understand Japanese. Please do not hesitate to listen. (Lol) Music delivery
