What is this song, sung many times in the movie "Carmen Comes Home" (Karumen kokyo ni kaeru, 1951).
It plays at the opening of the movie, and 2 more times later on.
You can hear it here: https://youtu.be/1AJ6tmCAqEo?t=136
Lyrics sounds like: "Inoyama no, tsumoto no munayo, ..." (difficult to understand clearly)
Which song is this? Thanks.

What is this other song? It plays in the movies
"Carmen Comes Home" (Karumen kokyo ni kaeru, 1951) and "Tree Without Leaves" (Rakuyoju, 1986).
You can hear it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-M0fyK47684
Seems to be a circus festival music.
Which song is this? Thanks.

Interesting question.  This first song is called そばの花咲く soba no hanasaku (blooming flower of buckwheat), you can find it here:

Thank you very much.

I've been searching those songs for almost a year, without success. It's nice to finally put a name on them.

-- There's also this song unknown to me, quite short, also from "Tree Without Leaves" (Rakuyoju, 1986) @1h08m20s

Do you know it? It goes "Tsukii wa ka suuru aruu no yo..."

Your welcome!  It's good practice for me to listen to the lyrics and then try to find the song based on that.

This one is interesting.  The song is called ドナウ川のさざなみ donaugawa no sazanami (Waves of the Danube).

From english wikipedia:
Waves of the Danube" is a waltz composed by Ion Ivanovici in 1880, and is one of the most famous Romanian tunes in the world. The song has many variations throughout the piece, reminiscent of the music of Johann Strauss.

From japanese wikipedia it says:
日本に伝わった当初は歌詞がなく、田村貞一などが作詞し『ドナウ川の漣』として[4]1902年(明治35年)に慶應大学で斉唱された[5]

(When it first came to Japan it had no lyrics, Teiichi Tamura wrote lyrics for it in 1902 and sung it at Keio University.)

Just also note,

ドナウ河の漣 donaugawa no sazanami is the version by Teiichi Tamura.  It uses different Kanji, but has the same pronunciation and meaning as ドナウ川のさざなみ donaugawa no sazanami (Waves of the Danube).

You can find the lyrics for the song here:

There is also lyrics for the ドナウ川のさざなみ version as well there.

Am I the only one who constantly listens to ‘Always with me’ from Spirited Away?
