About “Sayonara Amerika, Sayonara Nippon” blog

Posted in by bourdaghs on the May 23rd, 2009

This blog tracks my interests in Japanese literature, popular and other kinds of music (from Japan and elsewhere), creative writing, film, politics, sumo, baseball, The Kinks, and whatever else strikes my fancy. More information about me is available at my homepage ( The title of the blog comes from a 1973 song recorded by the legendary Japanese rock band, Happy End. All opinions, rational conclusions, emotional outbursts, etc., are mine and mine alone. All errors are the fault of someone else.
An online companion for my book, Sayonara Amerika, Sayonara Nippon: A Geopolitical Prehistory of J-Pop, is available here.
