The Japanese have a tradition of sending postcards and a word for these friendly little holiday snapshots: Nengajō. Each greeting is a celebration of culture and of life, bridging the old ways and modern times.
This BackPax journey delivers a bounty of Nengajō, audio "postcards” of colorful scenes and greetings from the land of the Rising Sun: “The Toothpick Warriors” from the days of the Samurai, Kabuki (traditional Japanese theater), Seijin no hi (coming-of-age day), the dolls festivals for girls and for boys, a message about ecology, and more.
Recorded on location in Japan and at the Asia Society in New York City.
