Sakura Season in the Art Room  (page 20)

Listen to “Sakura Sakura,” with closed-caption lyrics in both English and Japanese:

SAKURA SAKURA

Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,

In fields and villages

As far as you can see.

Is it a mist, or clouds?

Fragrant in the morning sun.

Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,

Flowers in full bloom.

Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,

Across the spring sky,

As far as you can see.

Is it a mist, or clouds?

Fragrant in the air.

Come now, come now,

Let’s look, at last!
