My Candidacy
(3 plays) | (0 fans)

The phrase "pom poko" - from the animated Studio Ghibli movie of the same name - refers to the sound Japanese raccoon dogs make drumming their own bellies as a form of Tanuki-bayashi. This is a strange phenomenon of sound in the night, musical sounds like flutes or drums heard out of nowhere - told about in legends across Japan.
