Do you like jazz? Come to Japan.
In most places where we sit down to eat or drink something you hear this kind of music. It's everywhere. Even in traditional places, those where you have to squat on a floor of tatami mats at a low table. Initially I was surprised, later I remembered that many modern jazz artists from the Netherlands do well and are even popular in this country. So I should have known. Even David, a saxophone player that grew up in our street, has played here.
It's the kind of jazz that you will hear on all these radio stations under the category 'Smooth jazz'. Surprising, not annoying at all.
