Really descriptive imagery - I like this line: "I might be met by sleek, giant, divine Temple crows, Karasu, whose caws and scolds showed their clever nature."

I spent some years living in South Korea and I miss the Summer sounds of the cicadas there as well. The sheer number of them makes for quite a loud concert for a brief time.
