Summer in Japan means those noisy semi (cicada) are back. It seems for a month or so every tree in Yokohama is infested with these bugs. They unnerve me. I hate bugs. But most Japanese welcome the sound as a New Yorker might welcome the music of an ice cream truck or a firecracker’s explosion as the sounds of summer.To me they sound like a car alarm from hell, that cannot be turned off, and kinda follows you wherever you go like a song stuck in your head.
I found a couple of videos about them…check them out
ps: And they fly…fast and blindly so they’re prone to fly into you
