Abstract

A questionnaire survey on sound for foreigners living in Fukuoka city was done to clarify the features of Japanese soundscapes recognized by those whose cultural background is different from the Japanese. The traffic sound signal for the blind, the exhaust noise by wild bike riders (Bousouzoku), the peddlers' cries, and the election campaign broadcast are the typical sounds only heard in Japan. The foreigners usually have good image for the traffic sound signal for the blind and the peddlers' cries. In contrast, they have negative impression on the muffler noise by wild riders and speeches concerning election. Comparison between the sounds usually heard in Japan and those less heard in Japan shows that there are too many public sounds, such as announcements using public-address system and music at the shopping centers, and few natural sounds and human voices in Japan.
