Tribute to Japan

Like most onlookers I am heartbroken about what is happening in Japan right now. There is personal resonance for me because I lived in Japan from 1999-2001 and have always had a huge affection for this country and its people. Since learning of Japan’s recent troubles I find myself thinking repeatedly of this piece of music. I am posting this blog as my tribute to the Japanese.

 If you want to listen to this music I issue this challenge to you. Click on the link below and then IMMEDIATELY shut your eyes. Listen to the music and see if you can guess which movie it’s from. I bet you can’t pick it:

 I will post a follow up blog to this one soon.

  1. I didn’t pick it, not in the sense of knowing which movie it came from, but I had a small hunch where it might be from. Quite a moving piece of music.

  2. To be honest, I’m not sure. I have seen a number of films made subsequent to the original, but I think I may have only seen certain scenes rather than the film in its entirety.
