    Okay………..Maybe you’ve seen the winged turtle, wondered what in the 
      world Jinokoya means, or even heard the music.

      What possessed a blond American female to become obsessed with 
      writing and performing Japanese Rock and Pop Music?

      Too much Green Tea?  Mind controlling worms in the Sushi?  Ninjas? 
      Yes!  Ninjas!

      It would be wrong if I lied.
      So I won’t tell you I was abandoned in Japan as a child, 
      later to be found and cared for by large radio-active reptiles.
      It would also be a lie if I said I was abducted from my Godzillian 
      family by Japanese Mafia Musicians who forced me to learn the 
      language and play their Rock and Pop music. I can’t really say 
      that because it’s not true….. 
      but it would explain a lot.

      Whether you’re an innocent bystander, musician, bi / multi linguist, 
      otaku, web surfer, or just can’t stand the crap on the radio, frolic
      through my site and indulge yourself in a world of music, elegant yet 
      mysterious culture, and a bit of ....

      Don’t be afraid. Remove the shell and come see my side of the world.

      – “Jinokoya”.
