森の池 (Mori No Ike) Songbook

Mori No Ike 森の池 Songbook 1996

Mori No Ike 森の池 Songbook

Long long ago, in the tiny po-dunk town of Dent, Minnesota, population  156, where a rag-tag bunch of gaijin (guy-jean) lived hippy lives while wearing hapi clothes, spending their summer speaking, living, learning, eating and singing Japanese.

From those years past I now resurrect the sacred song book for anyone who is interested, to share, educate, or practice their Nihongo no Uta’s during what has come to be known as “the off season” for many villagers.

Catalogued and printed over 10 years ago, the 1996 song book for Mori No Ike, the Japanese language village of the Concordia Language Villages, is just as timely today as it was in years past.  Hopefully, this online publication will help bring back songs that have dissappeared with the passing of sensei through the ranks, out of the camping life and on to wider and greater adventures.

Dedicated to all of those who have, are, and will continue to keep the spirit and operations of Concordia Language Villages alive, I give you the 1996 森の池 Songbook.

Yours Truely,

機械 (きかい) 先生
