A countless question I have come across since buying this domain. "What does it mean?" A panatrope is an English circus "slang" term for recorded music. When remembering his childhood, Ryutaro recalls circuses, playhouses and traditional Japanese festivals, which he often incorporates into lyrics. I have always loved the circus imagery that Plastic Tree continuously brings to life in some of their albums. And I really wanted something that tied into that aspect.
