To compare the features of Japanese and Korean soundscape, the interview survey on sounds were examined for Koran people living in Japan. They were asked the noticeable sounds in living spaces, market places, transportation, parks, urban streets, and department stores in Japan and Korea. The characteristic sounds in Japan are announcements and music from peddlers' of roast sweet potato and ramen (Chinese noodle soup), craw caws, traffic audio signals for the blind, and songs of street musicians. The characteristic sounds in Korea are magpie cries, popular songs or radio sounds in busses, peddlers' cries in subways, ambient music on the street in the midnight, and sounds of rice candy makers. We can see the cultural differences of both countries from the differences between their soundscapes.
