This project provides a chance to see the beauty of the Japanese language. It will be a heart-warming time of rediscovering the goodness of Japanese. It is an inspiring production not only for children but also for grown-ups.
Masato Tomobe was born in 1950. His latest album is Haguruma to sumohku sahmon. He has also released a mini-album (home-recorded in Kyoto and New York) titled Two Afternoons with Fuchigami and Funato as a unit called LDK. He has released five poetry reading omnibus albums (no media). He has also written other books too, such as a collection of essays Poet Who Lives in a Jukebox 2.

Ogura was born in 1965 in Shizuoka Prefecture. As a high school student, he heard a song by Masato Tomobe and was simply stunned by it. He started to work in music activities, as a vocalist of Blue Jersey in 1985, and then in 1993 as a vocalist of 800 Lamp. He has been solo since 2002, singing with his original instrument called the Fake Hand Organ. His second CD Ogura Box: A set of Three CDs (MIDI Creative) was released in 2006. He is known as “Most likely the only man who sings by cranking up a fake hand organ!”
