A Cultural Icon

November 3 is Culture Day and a national holiday. I thought I would write a post about a national icon, Hibari Misora. She made her stage debut at the age of 8 in 1945. She became a very popular singer and actress. The last song she recorded was kawa no nagare no you ni. It means "like the flow of the river." It is a well loved song in Japan.
