Saito Takashi

Saito Takashi no Tanoshii Nihongo (斉藤孝のたのしいにほんご; Saito Takashi's Fun Japanese) is two videos released on VHS with Japanese teaching material video for children. Kominato Miwa from Taiyou to Ciscomoon is featured in the video, singing two original songs as "Uta no Onesan".

Part 1 Edit

Dai 1-kan "Jugemu Jugemu" (第1巻「じゅげむじゅげむ」) Edit

The video shows off the charm of " Jugenmu", which is very popular among children. Jugemu is a Japanese folktale and is one of the most famous stories in rakugo, a form of Japanese spoken entertainment. It has a simple storyline, with the most humorous part being the repetition of a ridiculously long name, in this case "Jugemu Jugemu Gokou no Surikire Kaijari Suigyo no Suigyoumatsu ..." (じゅげむじゅげむ ごこうのすりきれ かいじゃりすいぎょの すいぎょうまつ…).

The original song "Jugemu Jugemu" (じゅげむじゅげむ) is sung by Kominato Miwa. The choreography is performed by Matsuno Chika, who was active in gymnastics on NHK's "Okaasan to Issho".

Dai 2-kan ""Kotowaza A I U E O" (第2巻「ことわざあいうえお」) Edit

Expressing familiar proverbs with a sense of humor from the perspective of entrusting words to the things that are closely related to life, rather than expressing the sayings as lessons learned. Proverbs appear in the order of the Japanese syllabary, and it is fun to learn their meaning and usage.
