The most humid and hottest month of year is August in Japan (or is it so in most places in the northern hemisphere?) Anyway, Since I moved to here, a small village in the mountain side of Japan. I’ve been enjoying hearing the sound of Higurashi cicada at the evenings of hot summer days. Their sounds are nicer than other kinds of cicadas, which are loud in hot day time.
I wanted to give a hint of what I am talking about to those who think Japan is still in the mystery part, so I am posting the sound here. (finally!)[audio:http://quinn.higurashi.dyndns.org/uploads/higurashi.20070804.mp3]
