Soba musician YUKIO

In Japan, the state of emergency was finally lifted in October. Everyone seems to be going out somewhere, and my neighbor seems to have gone on a trip. As for me, I’m writing this blog. Today, I’m only going to listen to classical music at a coffee shop for about an hour.

It’s a beautiful day again, and I’m sure the city will be crowded with people. I just hope that the coronavirus won’t spread again.

On days like this, Japanese people love to eat cold soba noodles. Let’s talk about soba this time. Soba is a type of noodle unique to Japan that is not found in Europe or the United States. Soba is made from buckwheat flour, flour(tsunagi), and water, and is served in a soy sauce-based soup that Japanese people love. The most important thing to remember is to suck up the soba with a lot of noise.

Zzzzzz !

and eat it.

This is Tokyo style. (laughs)

The most recommended topping for this soba is tempura. Tempura and soba are the perfect combination, and the taste is out of this world. It is as good as French or Chinese food.

tenpura and soba

That’s why I’m a soba musician. (laughs) I’m a tempura singer. (laughs) Why don’t you listen to my original Japanese songs while eating soba? It has a depth that you won’t find in English songs. (laughs)

I’m YUKIO, a “onigiri” singer.

Hello, this is YUKIO, a “onigiri” singer. What is “onigiri”? It is a soul food that Japanese people love, whose staple food is white rice. After cooking the rice, the rice is rolled by hand. Japanese people go on picnics with the “onigiri” packed in lunch boxes.
Speaking of Japanese food, “sushi” is famous, but “sushi” can also be said to be a small “onigiri” topped with raw fish fillets.

I have listened to English songs, but I grew up eating “onigiri”. So, of course, I sing songs that are different from American and European songs. Why don’t you listen to my “onigiri” song like this! ??

Even if you say “onigiri”, there are various types of “onigiri”, some of which are umeboshi or kelp wrapped in them. Each person has different tastes. The most typical one is “onigiri” wrapped with seaweed. It is delicious.

Please listen to my original song while eating “onigiri”. I’m sure you will see a landscape you have never seen before.

Mini-album music distribution called “Aomori” has started

Hello, this is YUKIO. I’ve just started a new mini-album called “Aomori” for music distribution. For those of you who have no idea what the title “Aomori” means, Aomori is a prefecture located in the northernmost part of Honshu, Japan. Aomori is the northernmost prefecture of Honshu, the main island of Japan, which is the largest of the four islands in the country.


I live in Tokyo, but I sometimes go to Aomori, though I won’t tell you why here. “Aomori is located in the north, so it can be quite cold. The fishing industry is also very active, and tuna caught in Aomori is sold at a high price in Tokyo. Japanese people love to eat fish, and tuna is one of their favorite foods.


This mini-album was created from five melodies that came to mind when I visited Aomori. It’s full of those melancholy melodies and rhythms that Japanese people are known for! Would you like to listen to it?
English songs are good, but Japanese songs are also good!

I’ll buy you a drink or two.

Hi, how is everyone? The Tokyo Olympics have just started. I’m sure there will be a lot of heated competition in various events every day from now on. I live in Tokyo, and yesterday the sound of airplanes was loud until midnight. Be quiet! I couldn’t help shouting to the sky.

As you all know, this Olympics will be held without spectators. I was expecting a quieter start, but it turned out to be a noisy one.

It seems that the number of people who were planning to come to Tokyo has been narrowed down a lot, and all those people should stay at home and listen to Japanese songs while watching the Olympics! You don’t have to listen to those famous Japanese songs. It’s pretty boring.

Instead of those songs, let’s listen to my original song! It’s pretty cool. It has a unique fun factor that English songs don’t have.

You can’t come to Japan for the Olympics this time, but if you like my music, please come and see my live performance in the future. I’ll be waiting for you. I’ll buy you a drink or two!

I’ll keep singing my original song until I die!

Hello everyone. How are you? What! Probably no one is reading this blog. I don’t understand English well and write it. (Lol)

When I introduce myself again, I am a rare singer-songwriter in the world who sings original Japanese songs and does not even listen to Japanese people. (Lol)

I’m writing this blog to sell my original song. My song is so original that the Japanese around me can’t understand it and don’t accept it. (Laughs) But I won’t lose. I’ll keep singing my original song until I die! (Lol)

The Internet removes the world of human beings who are moving in a narrow range such as nationality or ethnicity. That’s why I started blogging in English, French and Spanish other than Japanese.

It was good to start, but I don’t know the language so much, so I’m using Google Translate, but I’m wondering if it matches. (Laughs) Actually, I would like to make pages in Chinese, Hangul, and Malay in Southeast Asia in addition to these three words, but I have no time.

At first, this blog was updated about once a week, but it has dropped to about once a month. (Laughs) However, I haven’t given up yet! Good songs should reach others, even in different languages! I believe that even if we are from different ethnic groups, we feel the same as human beings!

By all means! Why don’t you listen to my original Japanese song! ?? It’s fun to feel the sensibility of the oriental people. It’s a message to you who are enjoying music on the other side of the globe. nice to meet you! (Lol)
