In some parts of Japan there is a tale about the Yamabiko (Echo), a spirit creature that dwells in the mountains. Very seldom seen but more often heard, it is the Yamabiko that replies back to you when you shout out. It is the embodiment of echo. Nowadays, however, some say that the Yamabiko is on the brink of extinction. They say it is because nature is getting more and more silent. The question is if they mean the kind of silence that appears when there is no one listening.
