Soundscape and soundwalk

The other day, I read an essay about soundscape and soundwalk. According to the essay, each city or place has its specific soundscape. Reading it, I thought of the soundscape of Hakodate.

I live in the old district called west area that is located at the foot of Mt. Hakodate. There are churches, temples, shrines and a park in my neigbhborhood. In the morning, I can hear birds chirping cheerfully. At noon, I can hear the peal of bells of Russian Orthodox Church. This church used to be called "Gangandera" or Ding Dong Temple by citizens. Today, I heard strong sound of a horse wagon passing up the paved slope. Where I live is a sightseeing area and I often see a horse wagon for tourists.

The essay referes to soundwalk, too. Soundwalk is a walk trying to be aware of good sounds.

When I had a walk in my neighborhood, I could hear a street car running. It is one of the characteristic sounds of this town. When I walked along the waterfront, I could hear cries of seagulls. It is my present boom to be counscious of my sonic environment and to pick up comfortable sounds for me.

Why don't you try soundwalk by yourselves?
