Hello and welcome to Sounds of the Rising Sun! This is a website dedicated to all things Japanese music along with the rich culture which accompanies it.

The Team:

A Nerdy Perspective – Owner, editor

Hi, I’m Samantha also known as A Nerdy Perspective. I’m the owner and main editor of the site. I originally created this website as I wanted a space for myself and other likeminded people to be able to share and express their love for the various kinds of Japanese music and culture. The website covers everything from album and single reviews to news and culture. I hope you enjoy what we create!

JP’s Variety Hour – Contributor 

Howdy! I go by JP. I’m the head honcho of JP’s Variety Hour. As a huge lover of Japanese pop culture, you can bet I’ve listened to a wide range of music from the land of the rising sun. My taste in music is pretty eclectic, so expect a variety of posts.
