Mid Summer Songs

Ware wa umi no ko

“ware wa umi no ko” began to be sung at elementary schools in the Meiji period. In Japan, a maritime nation, it was sung to teach children the spirits of boys entering the sea, but after World War II, the second half was shaved by the GHQ. But the great melodies and lyrics are still impressive today.

Umi(matsubara tooku)

umi(matsubara tooku) is Elementary school chant announced in the Taisho era. It is not a spoken language but a literary song. It seems to be singing the day and night scenery of an idyllic fishing village that does not prosper so much.
