Old children's songs of Japan 童謡

♪ 浜辺の歌 The song of a sands beach

あした浜辺を さまよえば

昔のことぞ しのばるる 

 

風の音よ 雲のさまよ

よする波も かいの色も

 

ゆうべ浜辺を

もとおれば昔の人ぞ

しのばるる

 

寄する波よ かえす波よ

月の色も 星のかげも

If I am walking along the sands beach in the morning, I will be reminded of old memory. 

 

They are "sound of a wind", "the form of clouds", "the wave comeing in", and "the color of a shellfish." 

 

If I am looking at the beach in the evening, I will be reminded of old friends. 

 

Are together with "restless waves", "color of the moon", and "starlight" .



♪ ふじの山 Mt.Fuji

あたまを雲の上に出し

四方の山を見おろして

かみなりさまを下にきく

ふじは日本一の山


青ぞら高くそびえたち

からだに雪のきものきて

かすみのすそをとおくひく

ふじは日本一の山

Clouds are under her head. And she is looking down on the mountains in the circumference. Thunder is sounding around her leg. Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan. 

 

She rises up toward the blue sky. She wears the kimono made in snow. Her skirt made with the haze is extended to a distance. Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan.
