Hibari Misora is a legendary Japanese singer, sadly no longer with us. Hibari had a concert in the Tokyo Dome once, shortly before she passed away.
The thing is that my mother is a great fan of Hibari, and was lucky enough to go to the Tokyo Dome concert.
Yesterday, passing a Tokyo street, I happened to hear Hibari's voice, singing "Kawa no Nagare No Youni" ("Like the flow of a river"), and immediately remembered how my mother was enthusiastic about Hibari Misora and was overjoyed to be able to attend the concert. At that time, of course, mother did not know Hibari was to pass away so soon.
When I remembered the Hibari concert episode, I felt tremendously happy for my mother, who is up and well at the mature age of 75.
Well, that's all.
