Growing up in Los Angeles, the only thing I knew about Cicada was the story I’d heard about how they only come out every 17 years.  Well, that must be a single type of Cicada because they were all over Japan in the summer.  Anywhere there were trees, there was the ever present sounds of Cicada.  This was especially true in Kyoto where they were so loud you couldn’t hear yourself think.
