Mutsumi Hatano
Mutsumi Hatano I was filled with nostalgia when I heard that I would be singing at Fukiji Temple. When I visited the temple as a child, the simple beauty of the Tomikiji Temple remained in my childhood mind, so it is a great pleasure for me to sing at the Tomikiji Temple. I always think about what instruments sound the most attractive, but this time I wanted to sing "Autumn Moon" by Rentaro Taki, and I chose this song because I thought it would be nice to sing it with a lute with Rentaro Taki's lyrics in November when the moon is at its brightest.

I was moved. My heart was washed away.

It's been a long time since I've been moved.
