Lyrics Transliteration Direct Translation Poetic Translation
美濃山に minoyama ni in the mountains of Mino In Mino's mountains
繁に生たる shiji ni oitaru naturally in thick growth In freedom, as nature wills,
玉柏 tamagashiwa the jewel oaks Flourish the Pearl Oaks.
豊明に toyonoakari ni at the next abundant harvest At the feast at Festival
会ふが楽しさや au ga tanoshisa ya it would be pleasant to meet It would be pleasant to meet you;
会ふが楽しさや au ga tanoshisa ya it would be pleasant to meet It would be pleasant to meet you.
