Japanese friend in Warsaw


Original YT playout date: 24 February 2009
Duration: 24:49

Here is a day spent in the company of Takahiro Kajiura, an intelligent and cultured gentleman from the land of the flowering cherry.

I used for the background the song Ue o muite arukō, also known as Sukiyaki, by Kyu Sakamoto. This is a song I remembered from earliest childhood, which Takahiro-san helped me to identify.

上を向いて歩こう
Ue o muite arukō
I shall walk looking up

涙がこぼれないように
namida ga kobore nai yō ni
So that my tears won’t fall

Omoidasu haru no hi
Remembering Spring days

一人ぼっちの夜
Hitori bocchi no yoru
On this lonely night.

This probably has one of the highest number of languages in it as we are speaking English, German and Russian and then there is Schuberts Heidenroeslein in Japanese, selected as this is a song the German version of which is a party piece sometimes delivered by our dear friend Dr Peter Heinemann, featured here, when in the right mood.
