Chapter Summary

This section contains a list of photographs and drawings of the book Traditional Folk Song in Modern Japan: Sources, Sentiment and Society. The photographs and drawings include musicians for Bon dance 'Nikkō-Waraku Odori', folk song bar Yoshiwa in Osaka, present-day official notation of the 'Esashi Oiwake kai' and the official notation of 'Esashi Oiwake' compared with sonagrams of the singing of Aosaka Mitsuru and Sasaki Motoharu; staff notation is spaced to align with Aosaka's sonagram. Folk song's close links with 'place', with specific locations on the landscape of Japan, make it a powerful tool for both evoking and satisfying feelings of nostalgia.

Keywords: 'Nikkō-Waraku Odori'; Aosaka Mitsuru; folk song bar
