We started this Japanese children's song series in 2008 with aims to pass down children's songs for generations. This set features "Memories of Summer," which has been sung over generations since its appearance in 1949. It is one of the representative songs in Japan, and was chosen as one of the "Selection of 100 Japanese Songs" in 2006. This song always reminds us of the typical idyllic scenery of summer in Japan.
