  • [Game] 182nd FSC (July 2022) - Osaka, Japan (結果)

    日本で夏を楽しむ時が来ました! 大阪へようこそ!
    It's time to enjoy summer in Japan. Welcome to Osaka!
    We come to Japan courtesy of a familiar face. The last time we were in Japan was five years ago and it was also because of this singer. In fact, the only time we've been to Japan in the last decade is because of Rina Sawayama. This time, Rina did with this Thriller submission: Osaka is the third biggest city in Japan. It's one of the oldest cities in Japan and has been around for thousands of years (though not by that name). Today, it's one of the most expensive places in the world to live (5th worldwide, but at least we're not in Tokyo, which is even more expensive). All that money you saved eating in Nigeria will be used up here. The city has a history as a merchant capital, and has long been an economic engine for Japan. They will be hosting Expo 2025. We may not be here for the Expo, but we will be here for one of Japan's most famous festivals - Tenjin Matsuri, which will be held near the end of the month. It is the festival of fire and water culminating with fireworks and a huge boat parade on the Osaka River.

    As far as things to do in Osaka, there's a huge nightlife at the Dotonburi landmark in the commercial district. You'll probably find me there, though there's lots of temples, a castle, and even a ferris wheel you can check out downtown. And, this is closer to Tokyo than Osaka, but I would remiss if I didn't mention the monkey spa - apparently in the 1960s, the snow monkeys in Japan learned about relaxing in the hot springs and OMG, the video is amazing. Road trip, anyone?

    As for food, I'm definitely going to search out the top sushi options out there as Zeph suggested, but it appears one food that's extremely associated with Osaka is takoyaki - fried and diced octopus balls! Yes, please! If fried balls disinterest you, there's also a delicious looking savory pancake called okonomiyaki that is also popular in the area. If you don't like either of these things, feel free to blame Rina Sawayama.




    RULES

    01. This is a monthly contest, modeled after Eurovision. You need to have at least 10 posts to your credit to take part.
    02. You can pick any country in the world.
    03. The artist you choose has either to be a citizen of the country they'll represent or to have been born there. At least HALF of the people from your act must be from the country you choose.
    04. Your song must be under 10 years old. Eligible entries must have been released after January 1st, 2012.
    05. Eurovision entries are not allowed. Songs from concurrent Eurovision heats are not allowed either.
    06. The song cannot have been a UK/US Top 40 hit, as it would give it an unfair advantage.
    07. The song can be a remix.
    08. The song cannot be a cover version.
    09. If your song features a sample, please state it early enough, so the other contestants can decide whether it is acceptable or not by poll.
    10. You cannot vote for your own country.
    11. Discussion about one's favorites during the contest is NOT ALLOWED, as it has the potential to influence the voting.
    12. PLEASE try and choose a song not everyone would know, the point is to discover new artists.
    13. If a song becomes or is found to be ineligible at any time before the voting is over, it will be disqualified.
    14. Make sure you understand all the rules before you take part. You will need to devote about 2 hours of your time to this game to listen to all the entries at least once. Do a little research on your entry before you present it, be sure that it doesn't violate any rules, and check here to see if it has taken part before.

    I am going on both a work trip and a vacation this month, so please note the altered timeline. Everything is pushed forward two days. When it comes time to vote, your vote will need to be turned in by end of day Osaka time on July 30th. Please don't be late this month, though there is a brief late time penalty. Please use the extra time to visit the snow monkeys.

    I'll go with the US this month.
