Weekend in Tokyo
Corrado Saglietti wrote this piece after an inspiring Weekend in Tokyo. He takes us to some exciting places: the busy shopping streets of Shibuya, a tradition bridal procession in a green temple, a peaceful river in Suidobashi, a temple rite with small, high-pitched bells, deep-sounding large drums and the song of monks, and finally to a Luna Park. A musical 3D-experience of Tokyo!
