Rainbow and folk songs in the island 海の島の虹とシマ唄
If there isn't the sea, there isn't an island.
There is the sea that reason there is an island.
What does link together an island and an island?
That it the sea.
Therefore the people who live the island say, the island is
''The sea's island''

The island is blessed with the sun and water, so they can see a lot of the rainbow.
A long time ago, the people fear the rainbow.
It's because they believed
''A dragon or a big snake comes and drinks water from heaven.''
At present, the people comprehend that the rainbow is a beautiful natural phenomenon.

A beautiful seven colors bridge remainds us something of ancient times.

Island's folk songs become waves then take us the important mind what we don't forget it.
The sounds and the mind are heard far away... an endless
''sea's islands'' in the world.
