Kristjaan ask that we listen and be inspired to write
This song is actually an Okinawan Folk Song which is known as Min'yo always depicting either sadness, loss of loved ones, loss of hope, grievances, or finding new hope.

you are far away
Mt Fuji yet your presence -
a song on my lips

This one is Japanese court music, also a kind of folk music, but for the high society so to speak

lofty notes -
ladies in the palace wear
their best kimonos
