Here are some Japanese folksongs which we have loved singing since we were in the Odawara Children's Choir. As of 27th of March, 2014, all the pieces except for “Sakura” seem to be obtainable from Pana Musica (http://www.panamusica.co.jp/en/) in Japan. For the score of “Sakura”, please go to Sheet Music Plus (http://www.sheetmusicplus.com) in the USA.
