「風土」Fu​-​do (CMR​-​30) by Nao Kodama, Ground

※”Fu-do” means the spiritual features represented by lands, nature, songs and culture in general proper to a specific region or country and the people who are living there.


These mountains belong to you.
These songs belong to you.
No matter how perfectly I imitate your gesture,
I cannot imitate your cultural and spiritual background.
That is the cultural climate specific to your country.

The wind here belongs to you.
The land here belongs to you.
No matter how clever tricks I use,
I cannot imitate your cultural and spiritual background.
That is the cultural climate specific to your country.
