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.
Chihiro’s first mini album “BOX of PEARLS” is now available!

I’d like to share some of the heartwarming feedback I received:
“Beautiful set, and definitely some really classy notes. I was going to write that my favourite was “Muddy Mind Mist” but the more I listen the more I find new favourites… The accompaniment added some nice depth, altogether lovely harmonies. I really enjoyed listening and watching your show. Keep up the amazing work!!”
“Your music is really awesome and you’re very talented. I feel ashamed that I’ve missed so many of your concerts. Honestly, I really like your style and how you compose music. Also enjoyed the way you perform and the lyrics. Way to go Chihiro!! I’ll come back for future performances”
“I really liked your song “How Far You Are” It made me cry… My husband’s favourite song was “Roots of A Waltz” Very classy”
“I do have to say that anytime we listen to your beautiful notes it is just magical. Today at the Cavern, you make the experience even more original than ever. I should say that every time you surprise us with something new. Thank you for that”
“I am continually amazed by both your breadth of musical abilities, and the amazing diversity of your musical styles and musical connections. I am so grateful that a chance encounter has given so many opportunities to enjoy your music… P.S. “Komorebi” is my favourite Japanese word, thanks to you”
“I’ve seen you grow as a musician and the repertoire of your music certainly has grown! Bravo! I specially like the jazz like component that you have recently added as I’m a jazz fan. I think that you are amazingly talented composer, singer, pianist. I hope that you continue the creative journey in music and look forward to more!”
“The sound is impeccable!! I got goosebumps at some point. Everything sounds so perfect, every bit, every melody, volume is so balanced. Wow! I’m really enjoying the time here!”
Thanks for all the encouraging messages! Luv u all xoxo
