    Village of Kikuchi                     

                                                                    Produced by Tatsunari Yakabe  Song by Yoko Saeki

I Went on a journey longing for a getaway

The murmur of the gorge and the refreshing water

The family chain of a clan and relaxing famous hot springs

The name of the place is Kikuchi

The Kikuchi rice is a feast after a relaxing onsen

The beautiful sceneries flash back, again

Strolling after dinner

The beautiful rows of cherry blossoms

Walking more, their reflections on the Kikuchi River

Cosmos petals blown by wind, guiding us to everybody’s gathering Ariake

Flowers are welcoming, happy time goes on, and the sun going down

the dark blue screen goes down and night approaches

The twinkle in sight, the fireflies shining on the water

The sites I stopped by are charming and the town made me forget the time passing

Hope I can visit this town, again

Pleasing my senses and making me smile

I promise that I will be back to this town glistening

I want everybody to know this hometown, Kikuchi

Village of Kikuchi pop
