Note: This tune is well known by all Japanese people. Because in Japan compulsory education, this song is sung at each class of elementary school. Now all of Japanese countryside scenery has been changed from I was a child. However I can remember it as I sing this song.

Today’s society has a terrible phenomenon against human. The power would carry away our lives from both of outer word and inner space to unexpected direction.

I have been over sixty years old. When I was in elementary school, I have never imagined society would change like today’s one. When our society developing to convenient, we usually lose to gaze on what is the most important thing for human. For example, sometime artificial things have a dangerous point at the back of today.

So I wish you take care for your homeland.

This song is sung by people in Japan, and many of them contribute their various performance on youtube. If you search the Internet with ’FURUSATO youtube’, you can find a lot of way of singing performance. Also, please refer a person who sing this song with transrated English texts on youtube.     

付記:   この曲は、日本人なら誰でもが知っています。 というのは、日本の小学校では義務教育の音楽の授業でこの歌が歌われているからです。 日本の田舎の風景は、僕が小学生の頃とはすっかり変わってしまいましたが、この歌を歌うと子供の頃に育った田舎を思い出します。


60歳を超えた僕が小学生の頃、今のように社会が変貌していくことなど考えもよりませんでした。 世の中がより便利になっていくことでその裏には、人間にとって本当に大切な事は何か、人工物は実を言うと危険な事をたくさん孕んでいることなどに目を向けることを忘れてさせてしまいます。


この歌は、日本ではたくさんの方が歌われています。’ FURUSATO, youtube ’で検索していただくと、様々な方が思い思いの歌い方で歌われていることがわかります。 また、英語の歌詞に翻訳して歌われている方もいらっしゃる様ですので、そちらもご参考になってください。
