Circle Round The Sun, A book.
Hodson's adventures deftly traverse the complex landscape of contemporary Japan. By day he studies the wacky protocol of his office's chain-smoking, green tea-drinking salarimen and the struggles of a new breed of aggressive career woman; by night he explores clubs in which old women watch a couple having sex on stage, and a waiter performs sexual karate tricks. Often hilarious, occasionally unnerving, but always acute, Peregrine Hodson's book instead represents a new kind of travel writing - a tale in which rules and conventions are turned inside out, leaving nothing but the truth laid bare in an encompassing vision of modern Japan.

Circle 'Round the Sun is the third album by American guitarist Leo Kottke, released in 1970. Eight of its eleven songs are studio re-recordings of songs from his first (live) album 12-String Blues. Although they should have been improved by being recorded in a professional studio, there is noticeable oversaturation in many of the songs, causing his vocal to break up. Kottke has often been quoted as being unhappy with the recording quality
