Royalty Free Sound Effects & Sound Libraries
Get ready for a journey through the bustling streets of Japan! This classic sound library from 2018 takes you on a musical ride through Osaka, Tokyo, and beyond. You’ll hear the sounds of trains and subways, including the iconic Shinkansen, as they race by with their unique beeps and announcements. As technology advances, so do the sounds we hear.
For example, while recording traffic in Tokyo, you might expect to hear the roar of engines, but instead you’ll be serenaded by the soft hum of electric cars. The same can be said for the trains, where hundreds of people pack the cars in silence. It’s a beautiful thing! And, buckle up because you’ll also get to experience the world’s busiest train station, Shinjuku, where over 3.5 million people come and go each day, yet it remains surprisingly quiet.
And, if you’re looking for more excitement, you can visit the fourth busiest station in Osaka, Umeda. Just a heads up, these sounds are royalty-free, but some are third-party recordings, so make sure to cut out any automated announcements if you’re using these sounds for commercial purposes. The choice is yours! So, sit back, relax, and let the sounds of Japan take you on an unforgettable journey.
