Emi Meyer, International Examiner Reporter, talks to Japanese singer-songwriter Chihomi.

English Transcript

Chihomi, could you give us a little self-introduction?

Yes, nice to meet you, my name is Chihomi. I released a single in 2001 and debuted as Chihomi Ishihara. I've now taken off my last name and have been performing as Chihomi for a year. I am a singer-songwriter.

You recently changed the direction of your career— could you explain how?

I started music because I loved singing. As things unfolded, I questioned what music meant to me, and whether I should continue my career in the same direction. At the root of the matter, I realized singing means the most to me, and arrived at the fact I love music. So in many ways, I decided to make things simple again. I am now working alone, of course with the help of many, and trying to return to the origin. I've therefore adjusted the direction of my career and am now a solo artist.

From now, how do you see your future plans?

I'm really pleased with how I'm pursuing music right now. I want to think of the people who are listening and create music that gives them energy and hope. That would make me content, and in order to do that, I need to continue enjoying music myself.

Some words of advice?

What kind of advice?

Like for other musicians?

Believe in the fact that you love music. It's hard to continue what you're doing, but if you keep at it, you will see results.

Canadian Japanese Internment | Wednesday, October 3, 2007

During the Second World War, Canada regarded Japanese as a threat to national security.

In January 1942, a "protected" 100-mile wide strip up the Pacific coast was created, and any men of Japanese descent between the ages of 18 and 45 were removed and taken to road camps in the British Columbian interior, to sugar beet projects on the Prairies, or to internment in a POW camp in Ontario. A few men at the McGillivray Falls, just outside the quarantine zone, were employed at a logging operation at Devine, near D'Arcy, British Columbia, while those in the other Lillooet Country found employment with farms, stores, and the railway.

I have a craving that must be satiated | Tuesday, October 2, 2007
I've been aching for something lately. I'm not sure why, but maybe its because I haven't had it in a while. I know its weird, but, honestly, I really love it. I'm talking about takoyaki.

For those that don't know what it is, its fried octopus balls. Now, before your mind wanders into the gutter, I guess you could call it the Japanese equivalent to a corndog. Except instead of a hotdog in the center, its a piece of octopus. Sounds appetizing, doesn't it? What with its crispy outside, tender middle, and chewy center. All covered in spicy mayo.

Not a lot of people outside of the Japanese enjoy these, but those that do can get pretty fanatical about it. I should know, I'm one of them. I guess its the idea of eating an invertebrate in waffle batter doesn't have a universal appeal. Well, more for me.

That is, so long i can find a place that actually makes them. I've lived in Seattle for about seven years, now, and I haven't had some in just about that long. I'm dying, here! Any help on locating some would be greatly appreciated. Of course, that would just inevitably lead to the Great Takoyaki Challenge!
