※ album previews and reviews

※ artist spotlights and interviews
※ denpa watchlist renewal
※ a new theme would be nice!

Japan Firsthand: Himeji (姫路市) Photojournal


With the recent earthquake/tsunami tragedy still very fresh in everyone's mind, not to mention thousands of refugees and grieving families, it feels a little insensitive to focus on denpa music these days. Sooner or later, we'll get back on topic (Reitaisai 8 was recently rescheduled), but until then we do have some great pictures to share from a recent trip. No matter what happens, Japan is still a beautiful country and deserves to be visited by anyone. Don't forget to donate to the Red Cross if you haven't already done so.

First up, Himeji! It is a charming mid-sized city that's mostly known for its impressive castle, but we did hear some KOTOKO being blared out of a game shop in the main shopping arcade. Since it was early January 2011, New Year celebrations were still ongoing, so the streets were filled with festive people and food stands. All pictures by CRIMExTHINK (click for larger resolution)

I think, is that teachers need to research EXHAUSTIVLY so that they understand the ins and outs of teaching ESL students abroad
