【japan jikkan Issue 001】
In addition to the feature articles, each issue of japan jikkan will feature a theme color and sound. The theme color for the first issue is 'sky blue.' A traditional Japanese color filled with hope, like a clear-blue sky. The theme sound is the water-cave lyre. Allow the echoes of dripping water to cleanse your soul.
