Out in the country in Sashiki, the buzzes and drones from nocturnal critters was enthralling. So on our last night there, I convinced Jojo to sneak out of the house with me around 1 a.m. We sat in the middle of a dark sugarcane field and recorded some new songs with atmospheric accompaniment.

“International Cutie Pies”

“Moe Meguro”

Teruya Music in Koza is the first music store I have been to in Okinawa. It’s not an enormous store, but there’s a pretty neat record selection and lots of guitars, basses, and random music toys. I walked out fairly proud that I had been fiscally responsible, but I only caught a glimpse of the J-pop cassette section on my way out, so I will probably be heading back in the near future to spend lots of money.

My first non-food purchase in Okinawa: The Legend (produced by Aria) pink half-size guitar. The best part is that it’s a $70 guitar that actually sounds good.

Allan and I also bought Otamatones. It’s sort of like a Stylophone with a face.
