December 9, 2019, 12:30pm: Ise-ji north-south, day 7. Final day. Flat leading out of Kumano City. Coastal walking. Leaden winter skies all heavy with moisture — thankfully none of it falling down. A bench by the ocean, rotten boards, falling apart. Fifteen minutes of listening to the oc... Read More
December 8, 2019, 18:30pm: Ise-ji north-south, day 6. Hello from inside fast food. Today was a day with too many peaks (7), not enough daylight. A day of racing the sun. I stopped for no more than five minutes an hour. Finally, when I stopped for long enough to record, we were in Mos Bu... Read More
December 7, 2019, 12:00pm: Ise-ji north-south, day 5. Hello from the steps of the recently rebuilt Buddhist temple, Kojindo, near the peak of Yakiyama.

December 5, 2019, 09:30: Ise-ji north-south, day 4. Ohayou. Perched above Furusato Onsen in a beautiful little hut looking out over the small islands running the coast of the Ise-Ji. Crashing waves.

December 4, 2019, 14:10: Ise-ji north-south, day 3. Oh, hello again. We recorded once again at Jurin in Kii-Nagashima. Think of it less as a repeat than a rhyme; new music, new customers, same countryside intonation from the owner.
December 3, 2019, 13:37: Ise-ji north-south, day 2. Why, hello. A perfect weather day — chilly when still in the shade, but just right when moving fast through the forest and villages of the Kii Penninsula. Emerged from the Misesaka Pass only to arrive at the Takihara Shrine.
Come, wa... Read More
December 2, 2019, 12:15pm: Ise-ji north-south, day 1. Hi there. Season three begins with pouring rain in the morning breaking way to patches of blue sky around noon. The birds missed their wakeup song so they came alive just after lunch. Sitting next to Higashi Tokida Shrine. Children's... Read More
May 28, 2019, 9:45am: Standing beside Takanomiya shrine inside of the Geku of Ise Jingu as pilgrims come and clap the gods awake. Devoured by morning mosquitos.
