In Japan, the state of emergency was finally lifted in October. Everyone seems to be going out somewhere, and my neighbor seems to have gone on a trip. As for me, I’m writing this blog. Today, I’m only going to listen to classical music at a coffee shop for about an hour.
It’s a beautiful day again, and I’m sure the city will be crowded with people. I just hope that the coronavirus won’t spread again.
On days like this, Japanese people love to eat cold soba noodles. Let’s talk about soba this time. Soba is a type of noodle unique to Japan that is not found in Europe or the United States. Soba is made from buckwheat flour, flour(tsunagi), and water, and is served in a soy sauce-based soup that Japanese people love. The most important thing to remember is to suck up the soba with a lot of noise.
and eat it.
This is Tokyo style. (laughs)
The most recommended topping for this soba is tempura. Tempura and soba are the perfect combination, and the taste is out of this world. It is as good as French or Chinese food.
That’s why I’m a soba musician. (laughs) I’m a tempura singer. (laughs) Why don’t you listen to my original Japanese songs while eating soba? It has a depth that you won’t find in English songs. (laughs)
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?
Hello everyone. I am a Japanese singer-songwriter.
I sing a song in Japanese. It is a song in Japanese, but everyone speaking English should surely understand. I am playing piano or guitar, but this time I would like to introduce piano videos. It is a video of youtube. Not singing famous songs in Japan, I sing the original songs I composed for myself. Japan is in the Asian region, the sense of rhythm is different from whites and blacks. However, I liked English songs more than Japanese songs.
I felt that English songs are more advanced than Japanese songs. I thought about expressing Japanese expression in Western harmony. There are songs like this in Japan. Please listen.
I wonder if I can explain it somewhat better in English?I am not good at playing the piano, but I think the song is nice.
