“いま光あびて – Now The Light Is Raining Down On You”

Origin of This Song:
The composer Hidetoshi Nagamatsu (Chihiro's father), from Kumamoto, Japan, has been volunteering for people with disabilities for a long time. There is a special train called “Himawari-go” which is a travel train project for people with disabilities. During his time volunteering for the train, a person with severe disabilities gave him a letter. ”I was mostly just staying home after I graduated from school, but my life has dramatically opened up because I participated in the Himawari-go.” Hidetoshi has said, because of this letter, he wrote this song.

歌の成り立ち:
熊本県出身の作曲家永松英利(ちひろの父)は、長年に渡り障害者への様々なボランティア活動を行っています。『障害者列車ひまわり号』という、障害者の旅行を実現するための臨時列車におけるボランティア活動において、重度の障害者の方からこういう内容の手紙を受け取りました。「学校を卒業して家に籠りがちだった生活が、障害者列車ひまわり号に関わったことで、自分の人生が大きく開けた。」その手紙を基に、この歌を創ったといいます。
