Oh,It’s bright red
It’s bright red
The ivy leaves are bright red
Even the maple leaves are bright red
Illuminated by the setting sun
You and I with bright cheeks
Surrounded by bright red autumn

Oh,It’s bright red
It’s bright red
The snake gourd are bright red
The back of the dragonfly is also bright red
Looking at the sunset clouds
You and I with bright cheeks
Calling out to the bright red autumn

Oh,It’s bright red
It’s bright red
Cluster amaryllis is bright red
Even the distant bonfire is bright red
Passing through the shrine gate
You and I with bright red cheeks
Go around in search of the bright red autumn

“Makka na aki” is a good song about children who want to play outside forever on autumn days when the night comes earlier.

 

In the 1960s, when this song was first sung, Japan was in a period of modernization and the decline of satoyama, triggered by the first Olympics in Asia. However, what is sung here is the appearance of nature in full-fledged autumn colors, and there was still nature around the children to run around.

 

The lyricist SATSUMA,Tadashi and the composer KOBAYASHI,Hideo, both born in Tokyo in 1931, were both 34 years old in 1965 when this song was first broadcast. Perhaps they was nostalgic for the war of his childhood, the devastation of the city where he was born and raised, and for Tokyo, which was rushing toward modernization in the process of reconstruction.
