It makes you find a key of rebuilding Japanese families to listen to an enka song, Seicho Osomatsu Bushi.

Our minimal community is a family. We will never find our society sound if our families are not sound. Recent news tells us a lot of Japanese minimal communities are just being on the verge of destruction everywhere. So Japanese have to rebuild families correctly, learning from the past and staring fixedly at the future.

For the rebuilding, it is useful to listen to Seicho Osomatsu Bushi sung by Hosokawa Takashi, released in March 1988.


Osomatsu-kun is an old animation of popularity and the song was used for its opening theme although the song almost has no connection with the main roles or the theme of Osomatsu-kun. The song must be called as an elegy for the middle class. Father and mother of a middle family comically encourage themselves in the song.

It makes a fool of yourself to live your life honestly, the song says. That is not from the abusing young, but from the man who has had to work honestly and has lived honestly. With pride and self-torture, he mutters the words looking back on his 50 years.

No connection with the title, it is natural to comprehend the song mentions about a way of Japanese families.

Written by Akimoto Yasushi and composed by Mitake Akira, the song was born. The two created Kawa no Nagare no Yoni: the masterpiece of Misora Hibari next year.

The good combination had mentioned about a way of Japanese families in the song. Good information helps. It never means a loss to hear before trying to rebuild Japanese families correctly.
