How to listen to YUKIO’s original song “Egg”

Well, this time I will explain my original song for the first time in a while. This is the first song “Egg” in “YUKIO”, a guitar-playing narration. Again, it’s a story of food. (Laughs) I shouldn’t have been so messed up, but … (laughs).

This song was composed when I was a teenager and is the oldest song in my original song. It may sound simple, but it’s surprisingly difficult. I was worried for many years because I didn’t understand the interlude part.

The content of the lyrics is, roughly speaking, the beginning song. My musical life began with this song. The shell of the egg broke and the contents overflowed.

Well, here is the story of this time. How do you eat the contents of this egg? bake? Boil? I think there are many ways to cook around the world. I’m Japanese, and in fact, there was a Japanese way of eating eggs. Don’t be surprised.

Eggs are eaten raw without being cooked. The Japanese love raw eggs. Wow!

You break an egg, sprinkle it with soy sauce that Japanese people love, mix it with chopsticks, and sprinkle it on rice to eat. Wow!

This simple way of eating is the eating habit that Japanese people have continued for a long time. (Laughs) Especially as the season gets hotter, I want to eat soy sauce rice with raw eggs. Wow!

Why don’t you eat raw egg rice while listening to my original song “egg”? The bones of your chin may come off because of the deliciousness. (Laughs) However, one thing to note. Eating raw eggs will hurt your stomach and cause diarrhea.

In such a case, please be patient until the end of my song before going to the toilet. That’s it. Wow!

fish song

There is a French phrase “ça va”. When pronounced “ça va,” it seems to mean “I’m fine. but when pronounced “ça va,” it probably reminds Japanese people of the fish “saba” (mackerel). For Japanese people, mackerel is a fish that they eat all year round. I also eat a lot of mackerel. LOL!

Grilled mackerel with soy sauce, served with rice and miso soup, is the best way to enjoy it. It is not the way to eat mackerel mixed with olive oil, etc. LOL!

As you know, Japanese people love fish and will eat anything fish. Because of this, they are very picky about the taste of fish. You wouldn’t know the difference between mackerel and horse mackerel. Akinata fish has a longer body than mackerel and horse mackerel. You probably don’t know that. The bonito caught in spring is called “Haru-katsuo” and the bonito caught in fall is called “Modori-katsuo”. Eating fish is also a way for Japanese people to feel the seasons.

However, the price of fish has been gradually rising in Japan, and eating fish is now more expensive than eating meat. However, the other day I saw a report on TV that a grilled fish set meal at a Japanese restaurant in New York costs 5,000 yen ($40) due to the recent inflation.

How is it possible that a grilled fish set meal costs 5,000 yen ($40)? I thought I would rather eat a high-class French meal. I am sure that not only I but every Japanese would like to see a New Yorker’s face eating a $40 yaki-fish set meal.

The Japanese are fussy about fish. LOL As one would expect from the birthplace of sushi. LOL But actually, I am an eater and can’t cook fish. I can’t cook fish, but I can sing Japanese songs that don’t sell.

Would you like to listen to my original song as background music while eating grilled fish set menus? I’m sure it’ll whet your appetite. Of course, I’ll keep it cheap, not priced like a restaurant in New York!

Just make sure you eat it with soy sauce. LOL!

seiza song

Well, for the first time in a while, I’m going to write this blog. Not because I was burnt out, but because it took me a long time to build a system to sell downloads of my original songs on this site.


Japan is on a week-long vacation right now, and everyone is off somewhere for a short trip or something. I had planned to stay at home, but my family wanted to clean the house, so I reluctantly went out to Tokyo yesterday. Let me try to tell you about those memories.


I went to a town called Ueno, where I entered a museum in a park. It was not that someone I knew was painting, but it was already summer and hot outside, so I stopped by to cool off. It had been a long time since I had seen a painting, and although there was nothing memorable about it, it made me feel somewhat peaceful.
So I went to a nearby temple to pray for no reason. LOL!

I was tired of walking and decided to take a rest somewhere, so I searched on my phone and found a rakugo theater nearby called “Suzumoto” where I entered and listened to a rakugo performance.


Rakugo is a type of comical storytelling that has been practiced in Japan since the Edo period (1603-1868). A professional storyteller, called a rakugo performer, sits alone on a cushion called a zabuton and tells a rakugo story in front of the audience, making them laugh.
The performer must sit on the zabuton in seiza.


Seiza is the correct way for Japanese people to sit, which has been handed down from the ancient times, with knees bent and buttocks on heels. None of the foreigners sit in seiza, but Japanese people always sit in seiza during Japanese ceremonies and funerals. A Japanese who cannot sit in seiza is not Japanese. Especially at funerals, when monks chant sutras, everyone sits on the cushions and listens to the sutras, but the sutras are so long that at the end, their legs go numb and they can no longer sit on the cushions. Laughing, I realized that Japanese people still love to sit on the floor.

However, professional storytellers of yesterday’s rakugo (traditional Japanese comic storytelling) continue to sit in seiza on a zabuton while they perform their stories. They are professionals! It can’t be that sitting in seiza posture is not painful! LOL!


This is why I want my original songs to be professional as well. Would you like to hear my seiza song? They are available for download. Just sit on a cushion and listen to it in front of the stereo. I won’t be responsible if your knees break…. LOL!

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.

Bento pianist. YUKIO

Happy New Year to all English speakers! It’s already been 15 days since the new year and you don’t get that greeting! How are you doing? I’m not sure if this is the correct translation for this Deepl. (laughs)


Now, I’m going to talk about bento in Japan.” A “bento” is a portable meal consisting of a box of rice and some other food items. Whenever Japanese people go on a field trip, they always bring a bento box with them. The bento box is delicious, especially if your mother got up early that morning to make it for you!
As we all know, the staple food of the Japanese is white rice. So they fill half of the bento box with white rice and the other half with grilled fish, vegetables, or for today’s children, hamburgers, and take them on a picnic.
It is not only for picnics, but also for lunch at school. All the kids look forward to seeing what’s in the lunch box and open the lid of the box.

When I was in high school, I used to bring my own lunch to school, but since my mother was not around, my father made it for me. There were not many side dishes, and I remember being embarrassed to open the lid of the lunch box. (laughs).


As you can see, Japanese people love bento. (laughs) One of the most favorite things for Japanese people is to take a train to a destination and eat a bento while enjoying the view from the window. You won’t find this kind of habit anywhere else in the world. (Laughter)
This bento is called ekiben. TRAIN STATION is called “EKI” in Japanese. There are many types of ekiben, and different types are sold in different regions of Japan. By eating these ekiben, Japanese people feel the emotion of traveling.
The other day, I heard on the TV news that “Torimeshi”, a famous ekiben from Akita prefecture in Japan, will be sold at Gare de Lyon in Paris for six months only. I am not from Akita, but I have eaten “Torimeshi” on a trip to Akita, and it was very delicious.


Parisians have a very good sense of taste! That’s a Parisian! (laughs)
(laughs) If you take a train from Paris and eat ekiben while watching the scenery from the train window, I’m sure the scenery you see all the time will look different. When you do, download my songs to your smart phone and listen to them as background music! (laughs)
You may be able to see Mt. Fuji over the Seine River.
