Fall crickets in Tokyo

Tokyo city view from 10th floor in Nakano

Last month, I posted a video with the sound of summer cicadas, of which there are four types. Several weeks later, the cicadas have been replaced by crickets, called suzu mushi (鈴虫), or little bell.

In a city that appears from up high to be covered in concrete for as far as the eye can see, it is amazing to be able to hear so many insects and experience the passing of the seasons. Click below to hear the sound of cicadas reaching a 10th floor apartment near central Tokyo.
