Japanese who do not imitate

This time I would like to talk about Japan these days. Japan is the earliest in the world to enter an aging society, and there are many elderly people around me. I’m about to join the ranks. (Laughs) Economic growth has stopped, and the last 30 years are said to be the “lost 30 years.” Japan is called a developed country, but looking at the numbers alone, I don’t think that’s the case anymore. Japan loses to China and South Korea in Asia no matter what it does.

Looking at the world of music, Japanese people used to win prizes at music competitions, but now they are mostly Koreans and Chinese.

There are many Japanese who are worried about Japan today, but I’m not really worried about it. (Laughs) The reason is that I think Japanese people are gradually losing their imitation of the Western world. For the past 150 years or so, the Japanese have been trying hard to catch up with and overtake Western society, but there is no need for things to overflow in the Japanese world.

It may be important to win a gold medal at the Olympics or a prize at a music competition, but what is more important for Japanese people now is probably the creation of their own culture that does not imitate Western society.

There are many Japanese politicians and business owners who are still chasing the society created by white people, but not as much as when I was born.

Japan’s economic indicators must be getting worse in the future, but the Japanese are now regaining some of their old identities. I want to think so.

“You’re kidding! Where are the Japanese who don’t imitate white people?”, You might say,

You’re right in front of you first. The Japanese who wrote this sentence. Why don’t you listen to the original Japanese song of Japanese “YUKIO” who doesn’t imitate !? Please listen to the song regardless of race.

If you like the song, why not buy it?

French kiss is a sweet love taste

When Japanese people say “kiss me”, they say “chu”. Actually, “kiss” and “chu” are the same thing for Japanese people. However, “chu” is a kiss with a light greeting, and a rich kiss is not called “chu”.

In addition, Japanese people sometimes call the onomatopoeic word for noodles “churu churu”. (Laughs) You shouldn’t make noise when you eat pasta, but Japanese people love to make noise when they eat noodles. “Chur Churu” and Japanese people eat pasta. (smile)

Both “chu” and “churu” are human instincts with the movement of the lips. One of my original songs is “Chu! Chu! Chu!”, Which rhymes with these two onomatopoeia. It’s a comical song with women kissing and sipping ramen, but it’s a very pure love song.

I was wondering how to translate this song title “Chu! Chu! Chu!” To you other than Japanese. Even if you sing “Chu! Chu! Chu!”, You probably don’t know the onomatopoeic word “chu”, and you shouldn’t make a noise when you eat noodles.

I don’t know, so when I searched for it, I thought that the onomatopoeic word “mwah! Mwah! Mwah!” Was the closest, so I decided, but when I thought about it carefully, I made a sound like “mwah! Mwah! Mwah!” , You won’t eat pasta and you’re not rhyming at all.

Yes, this song is untranslatable. (Laughs) When I try to translate it, I’m completely out of the essential charm of this song.

Then, when I searched and found a translation of this song, I realized that most Japanese people mistakenly think of “chu” as a light kiss “French kiss”. “French kiss” seems to be a French deep kiss who is passionate about love. Isn’t “French kiss” a sweet love taste? ?? Apparently it’s a bold and rich adult taste.

Kiss has many flavors. It might be a good idea to listen to this song “mwah! Mwah! Mwah!” (Chu! Chu! Chu!) And remember the taste of your kiss. Or would you like to try it with me?

It is likely to have a strange taste. (smile)

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!
