Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

Hanako Oku – Tegami

yellow flag

Have you ever missed your chance to tell someone that you loved them? If you could communicate with a loved one from long ago — would you do it? Do you regret not sending a message to someone you loved?  What if you could have another chance?  Could you break out of your everyday life, and make a grand gesture?

It might start with a signal … a message … a note … a letter … tegami.

This is one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite artists.  Here is the official music video to accompany her 2008 release.  This video is not available on YouTube!  Please enjoy on the JPopsuki website.  Zen-like, it will open in a new window by clicking the link below, or the link up here:

There are a number of nice moments.  You may have your own, but some of mine are at Time 1:10 – the young couple with the infant; Time 1:44 the toddler girl waves (she gets it, it is cute); Time 2:35 both the young and old man wave … the young man concerned, steadies his grandfather; Time 4:44 what an array of lovely flowers, not artificial, they are genuine beauty.

The song always makes me cry … but why?  In the video, nothing happens* … yet it is emotionally compelling when combined with the song.  Absorb the moments.  Find your own moment to live mindfully in …

I greatly appreciate the lyrical translation-interpretation by Vahila-sama.

It took five years for this starlight to reach my world.
