sub specie aeternitatis

Kamakura Station

June 9, 2004

I finally have access to an MD player so I can now start putting up some audio of the trip I just made to Japan. More will follow so check back later. I have also created a new catagory for audio from the trip, simply labeled Japan.

This first sound byte is from a busy train station at Kamakura. I had just visited different temples around the area and was waiting to head back home on the JR train. School children, in their brightly colored hats worn for field trips, were there en masse and when a train comes in tooting its whistle, one starts in crying. Towards the end of this snipit, you can hear the train station’s melody play briefly. (train stations in Japan often have a quick melody that is played over the loud speakers for some reason or another)
