Onsen, hot springs, are an important part of Japanese culture, and it is one of my favorite things about Japan.
Today I want to share with you a special onsen called Sabako-yu in Iizaka, Fukushima, where my family is from.
Check out my new article, “Onsen Myths of Fukushima” on All About Japan!
My blog article, “I Cannot Forgive Myself for What I Did” was published on The Huffington Post USA, UK, Italy, Spain, German, Korea, and Japan：
“I cannot believe that war is the best solution. No one won the last war, and no one will win the next war.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt
I’m happy to announce that a compilation CD based on my book, “Last Song,” will be released from Universal Music. It is a collection of songs mentioned in the book, such as “What a Wonderful Word” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
The CD contains songs by various artists, including Japanese and American traditional tunes and classical pieces. I’m singing one song for the CD.
It will be available on iTunes and Amazon Japan on July 29!
