Tokyo Calling

13 11 2016


In between Macaronesian (look it up) architecture and Southeast Asian food, I also spent the weekend getting into some Japanese film and music. Makoto Shinkai’s anime smash hit “Your Name” opened in the city to packed theatres. Although we arrived to the cinema late (my fault) I still enjoyed the incredible beauty and very Japanese sensibility of the film, about two teenagers who swap bodies in their dreams while a comet makes its way in the skies above…

Also, I discovered the band Wednesday Campanella and in particular, its intriguing frontwoman and recent J-celebrity KOM_I. Intriguing to see a Japanese group with an affinity for dance beats and a very offbeat aesthetic topping the charts.
