Kitakami Yokyoku Monument

Kitakami City

Southern Iwate

The sweet and heartbreaking "Kitakami Yokyoku" was born in 1944. It continued to be sung quietly throughout the chaotic period during and after the war, and became an explosive hit in 1961. This monument is handwritten by the lyricist and composer, and it is said that it is rare to find a monument with musical notation engraved on it. It is built on the river bank near the rest house.
