On a bus or a taxi going through Kyoto, Japan in August 1990 I saw a club called "Pignose Jazz." The name was burned in my memory for some reason, probably because I was just starting to fall in love with jazz at that point in my life.

A quick google search yields a "talk about Kyoto" page (in Japanses) listing "Pignose" along with a couple other jazz clubs. I am oddly gratified that the place still exists, despite never having set foot in the place.


  1. remember the Sanjo Cupola? With the Shakey's Pizza?

  2. Of course! Nothing says "comfort food" to a trio of Americans abroad like a pizza with squid on it.
