Ima wa yamanaka, ima wa hama,
Ima wa tekkyo wataruzo to
Omou mamonaku tunnel no
Yami wo tootte hironohara

Tooku ni mieru mura no yane
Chikaku ni mieru machi no noki
Mori ya hayashi ya ta ya hatake
Ato e ato e to tonde yuku

Mawari dourou no e noyouni
Kawaru keshiki no omoshirosa
Mitorete soreto shiranuma ni
Hayaku mo sugiru ikusenri


Steam train

Now in the mountains, now on the beach,
Now I’m trying to cross the railway bridge
A tunnel appears shortly after I thought
It was a wide field after passing through the darkness

A village roof seen in the distance
Nearby town eaves
Forests, woods, rice fields and cultivated land
To the back, To the back, it flies like a fly.

Like a picture of a rotating lantern
The fun of changing scenery
I saw landscape that captured my eye
About million of miles have passed
