Welcome spring with sakura songs

Welcoming spring with sakura songs

Spring is just around the corner. When thinking of spring season, many people will thinking of the warm and beautiful cherry blossom or sakura. Around the end of March to beginning of April is the best time to view the blossoming sakura or o-hanami in Tokyo and Kyoto area. Sakura is a very beautiful flower and I had seen many beautiful shots of sakura and sadly I did not experienced it by myself. Fortunately I have sakura-themed songs be with me.

Below is the playlist of songs that is related to sakura. I always like sakura songs because the flower gave the artistic feeling and it feels good to listen. The first song of the playlist is the famous traditional Japanese folk song “Sakura“. I remember I sang the song before during my primary school’s singing class. Plus, there are many artists sang sakura songs in various music genres but mostly are calm, beautiful and cheerful.

There is a lot more out there but basically these are all the songs I found. Nakashima Mika seems like sakura very much because she sang two sakura-themed songs, while Sotte Bosse’s “Sakura Drops” is the cover version of Utada’s. All the songs are very nice indeed! Please have a listen. “Sen bon Sakura” by Rainbook is my personal favorite.

Well this is not the end. I found out that sakura-themed music cover is very nice and illustrative too. Below are some of the example. Ahh, I must go o-hanami somewhere in the future ;).
