Traditional Song, Japan.

This is a traditional Japanese song about the coming of spring. Contrary to popular belief, the song did not originate in ancient times; it was a popular, urban melody of the Edo period and was adopted as a piece for beginning koto students in the Tokyo Academy of Music Collection of Japanese Koto Music issued in 1888 (in English) by the Department of Education.

The song has been popular since the Meiji period, and the lyrics in their present form were attached then. It is often sung in international settings as a song representative of Japan, and many electronic crosswalks in Japan play the melody as “guidance music”.

“Sakura” Lyrics (English translation)

Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
In fields and villages
As far as you can see.
Is it a mist, or clouds?
Fragrant in the morning sun.
Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
Flowers in full bloom.

Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
Across the spring sky,
As far as you can see.
Is it a mist, or clouds?
Fragrant in the air.
Come now, come now,
Let’s look, at last!

  1. Hello, I would like to know if I can use the Sakura free midi file for a short film?  Is this track available of  public domain or copyright? Thank you

    1. Hi Gio. If you are referring to the midi file indeed, you may go ahead and use it. The file is copyrighted by Singing Bell, but we’d be glad to be mentioned in a short film. 😉

      1. Thank you!  I may use it on my next short film indeed. Do you know if I need extra permission from the writer of the song?
