Foster Japanese Songs is a project to promote high quality Japanese songs to the world by providing a comprehensive set of assets that will enable anyone – from serious professionals to amateurs who enjoy singing – all over the world to sing Japanese songs.

Foster Japanese Songs develop

-Digital scores / sheet music revised by Japanese song authority, Yoshio Tsukada
-International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) and English translation of lyrics
-Digital audio sources (MP3, iTune) of Japanese Songs

We are confident that we have assembled the best possible staff in Japan to prepare the contents of this site, allowing us to provide the materials based on the deepest study and reflection. We hope that by continually enhancing the contents, this site will become a strong resource offering a definitive version of Japanese songs, and as such will contribute to the conservation and development of culture itself – not only of Japan but of the world.
