Karaoke Practice: ii hi tabidachi


When I moved from Saga to Saitama, a reader told me about this song. It's perfect for people that are about to go off on a big trip. The song is pretty easy to memorize and impress your elders with.

Bonus versions:
Kinda Scary Girl version (her website is here).
English, slightly disco version by The Nolans.
It seems like there have been quite a few foreigners to break into the enka world over the years (the most recent and famous being Jero of course); I may make a post about foreign singers next time we have Karaoke Practice.
