In our previous issue, some of our staff shared stories about their personal experiences with failure while living in and outside Japan. This time, our staff, both old and new, have recommended some of their favorite Japanese music – what better way to immerse yourself in a culture than to explore its music? They’ve also shared some short stories as to why each song is so special to them. What are some of your favorites? We hope you give these a listen and share your thoughts with us!
“Basing their name on the English word “Dandy”, this 2012 group from Shimane has become quite a hit in Japan. Their newest song Apoptosis became one of my favorite songs because of the amazing beat and vocals. I love their use of unique English words to make such catchy tunes!”
