This video is the most comprehensive one I’ve found. It’s great to hear the people’s reactions when they hear the melodies they recognize– probably from their own trains.
Call me a “train nerd.” Call me what you will. I think these melodies are awesome. And the only thing cooler than the melodies themselves, and the fact that trains in Japan have unique melodies associated with them is that people go home and practice playing them on their electronic pianos.
It’s about time I learn some of the JR Nishinihon melodies on my fiddle!
