A couple of months ago, I posted a recording where you could hear a short melody playing in distance. This very short recording is just the same kind played in the morning. The ‘morning chime’, or ‘shichiji no chime’, playing here was recorded in the island of Mikurajima. If you ever come to Japan you are most likely to hear the ‘goji no chime’ or ‘evening chime’, which I will share on the next audio post. Keep in mind that the melody may change according to the area or city.
You can find a very good English explanation and videos about the meaning of these melodies on this guy’s blog.
