As a country that is rich in history and culture, it is expected for Japan to also be a country rich in music. As usual, the Land of the Rising Sun does not disappoint. Japan is a country rich in as much musical variety as it is in seafood. Music here ranges in everything from traditional folk music played with reed flutes to the chugging guitars of speed metal. And if that weren’t enough, you have the sounds of jazz, pop, and dance music to fill in every space in between.
