Sheet music at Kamakura Beach 2016/11/22 12:55
When I went to Kamakura Beach there was a small statue with sheet music engraved into it. Does anyone know what this song is? And if they do, is there a link somewhere where I can listen to it? I have been wondering for months now!

Here is a picture. Thank you! :) http://i.imgur.com/UNeAf1Z.jpg

It says さくら貝の歌 (Sakuragai no uta). Sakuragai is a small pinkish sea shell (looks like some shells are embedded into the sheet music plate in the photo).

Do a search on YouTube and you will find several versions.
