Mongolian throat singing, Haitian voodoo music, and Indonesian percussions. These were just some of the strange, wonderful music on offer at this year's Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF), held from Aug 5-7 in Kuching, the capital of the East Malaysian state of Sarawak.
Now in its 19th year, the RWMF has become an annual highlight for many music lovers from across the region, who come back year after year, hooked by the wonderfully diverse performances, laid-back vibe and idyllic setting in the heart of the Borneo rainforest.

How would you like to travel by rail from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore in just 90 minutes?

Rishiri Island, off the coast of Hokkaido, must be very cold in winter, but right now it's comfortable, free from heat and humidity. It's also the season for catching sea urchins.
I tried my hand at collecting sea urchins at Kamui Kaigan Park (Kamui Coast Park) in the town of Rishiri on the west coast of the island.
I was nervous because I thought I'd have to dive into the sea like the ama female divers (featured in NHK's hit morning TV drama Ama-chan).
