Today I want to share with you an awesome video that I hope you like.  I’m a big fan of Hayao Miyazaki.  He is a director of some of the greatest animated films of all time.

This is the song called “The Stroll” (さんぽ)from one of my favorite family movies of all time, “My Neighbor, Totoro”. Here is a link to the lyrics, http://aquamarine.nu/lyrics/af/myneighbortotoro.php. By the way,  the next few blogs will not contain a Japanese translation.  Yukari is has been very busy helping me out with the school, so I want to give her a break from translating my posts. Cheers, Kev
