Ensen(17yo)'s philosophy


ALMONDot, the industrial metal band from Japan

“Sorai”(17) who stood out in the female guitarists world, resonates with the sense & philosophy of philosopher & rapper & Dancer “Ensen” (16), who spent her childhood in London and saw Japan from the outside world, and in April 2023 the Industrial Metal Band "ALMONDot" was launched!



🧠Variety of unique characters and entertainment in Japan have been around for a long time. Anthropomorphizing things like hot spring girls, local mascot characters, and historical figures is an amazing idea.

I also don't think there are any other groups that have a deep-rooted anthropomorphic culture like the one in Kansai where people call candy "Ame-chan".

I think the world should pay more attention to Japan's unique mindset, which blurs the distinction between things and people.

So, one day it occurred to me that Japan should have this identity admired and protected by the people of the world for the future of Japan (Genius!!).

We hope to be able to convey various things like that through music!!



🧠Recently, when I talk about the future with my classmates, they all talk on the premise of leaving Japan.

But Japan is a country where people who can love all things on an anthropomorphic level live, where elaborate and bizarre craftsmanship abounds, and where you can find delicious food wherever you go.

Is there any other island country like this?

To me, this whole country looks like a resort island, and I want it to be a JAPAN that will continue to be loved by the world even when I grow up, not to mention MT.FUJI, SUSHI, OMOTENASHI and so on.

I hope to share these glimpses of Japan through my band activities.



🧠I feel relieved when I return to Japan.

I still miss it when I leave my own country and it's so wonderful to feel that way.

Of course, there are many wonderful things in other countries as well,

I often hear from people I know from overseas who have stayed in Japan that they miss Japan,

I am sure that Japan is full of things that they miss, objectively speaking.

Japan is the first country in the developed world where the population has started to decline.

Japan, the country where everyone says "this country is no more.”

Japan, a country that is warm, polite, beautiful, and crazy.

I want the world to miss it more and more.
