Is it just me or are a ton of Japanese acts heading state-side these days? X Japan rocked Madison Square Garden. Shonen Knife played their 1,000th show in Minnesota. Hatsune Miku was on David Letterman!

We’ll hear from a couple of those bands in this episode along with new music from Avengers In Sci-Fi, and Emi Meyer. Want some additional reading? Check out what The Japan Times has to say about Avengers In Sci-Fi’s latest album, Unknown Tokyo Blues and Emi Meyer’s team-up with guitarist Seiichi Nagai.

    I'm Back! After an absence of nearly two years, I am catching up with Nihongaku Radio!!! My internet at home is the bunk, so I can't afford the bandwidth to listen, but I'm staying at a hotel with Bomb Ass WiFi, AND I'M IN NIHONGAKU HEAVEN!!! YAY!!!

    Hey, I just wanted to say your show is awesome! I only found out about it a couple months ago, but I've been working my way through the back episodes.

    • Hey Cameron! Thanks for listening to the show. Glad you've discovered it and enjoy it! If you have a request, let me know. Probably seems unlikely given the amount of time that's passed since Episode 54, but I'm working on posting some new shows. Hang tight! Thanks for listening!

        Sometimes you've gotta take a break! I recently discovered Buck-Tick, not sure if they're up your alley or not.
