Hinomaru and the sun

Hello! Today’s Japan is a holiday. It is the birthday of the current emperor of Japan. I haven’t gone out yet today, but maybe the cityscape is full of Hinomaru.

The Hinomaru is both the national flag of Japan and the symbol of the country of the sun. There is one round red sun in the square white flag. It is very plain compared to the flashy colored flags of other countries. When I was a kid, I hated such a sober Hinomaru, but now that I’m an adult, I don’t think it’s a mess. Somehow, I think this soberness is good. (Lol)

By the way, the round red of the Hinomaru is thought by all Japanese to be the sun, because when we were children, we all drew the sun in red. Yes, the Japanese think that the color of the sun is red.

However, according to the rumor of the wind, the sun is drawn in yellow in foreign countries! I can not believe that! The sun is yellow! I thought so, and when I looked directly at the sun rising in the sky, my eyes became dark. (Lol)

Of course. There is no color on the sun. However, if the color of the sun’s light is yellow, that may be the case … but I thought it wouldn’t look red. I wonder why I draw the sun in red. From the perspective of people around the world, I think this is the reason why Japanese people seem to be different. (Lol)

I don’t know if it’s because of that or not, but the album jacket of my original work “Sun” is a little different from the Japanese Hinomaru, the sun inside is white and the surroundings are yellow. It is set to. For my music, the sun is not colored and the surroundings are yellow. (Lol)

Why don’t you listen to the 13 songs in this album “Sun”? You should see a different color of the sun, neither the yellow sun nor the red, of course, like the Hinomaru. I don’t think the color is decided by me, but by you who listened to it.

You can download YUKIO original Japanese songs! Would you like to listen? You can also listen to it.

I also distribute music on other sites.

The guitar album “YUKIO” is now available for download.

Hello everyone who speaks English. long time no see. I haven’t heard from you. How are you? I don’t think anyone has read this blog, so I write it as I like. (Lol)

Actually, what I was doing without writing this blog was that I had a page for download sales of my songs on pages other than this blog page on my homepage. This work was quite time-consuming.

Thanks to you, I can now sell the 15 songs of my first guitar album “YUKIO” on the web. You can easily download it from your smartphone with Paypal payment. It costs 150 yen per song. How cheap! (Laughs) If you shop at Paypal, why not buy it?

You can listen to all songs on the guitar page of my homepage, https://en.yukio.asia/music-e.html. Compared to listening on Apple Music or Spotify, the listening time is set as long as possible so that you can understand the essence of the song. If you listen to it and like it, you can jump to the page of each song and purchase it. The audition file is mp3, but the download file is uncompressed wav. Unlike mp3, wav has very good sound quality!

You can also download all 15 songs from the album at once. As the author, the whole album is a concept album, so I hope you will listen to all 15 songs at once.

I must also mention the contents of the guitar album “YUKIO”. This work is all sung with one acoustic guitar. The structure is quite simple, and it’s as simple as it gets. Only the skeleton of the song is shown. (Laughs) The reason why this happened is that I’ve been in bands with various people for a long time, but I feel like I’ve ruined my song by arranging it, and then I myself. I thought that the simplest way to sing only what I wanted to express would reach the ears of others.

However, as you’ll understand if you listen carefully, each song in this album has a different rhythm and a different composition. If you are a musician with great talent, you can make a wide variety of arrangements. If you’re not interested, these songs are junk. (Lol)

Why don’t you listen to the 15 songs in the guitar album “YUKIO”? If you’re just listening to the intricate and trendy English songs right now, something fresh may sprout in your heart. Complex things aren’t always nice. (Lol)

simple is best!
