Chūgoku Region Lullaby
Chugoku Region Lullaby is a traditional folk song in the city of Ibara, Okayama Prefecture, Chugoku region, Japan, and is a well known Japanese cradle song. It is best known by the arrangement by Kosaku Yamada that was made in 1938.
An instrumental version, played on a harp, marks the end of transmission at night on RCC, broadcasting to Hiroshima prefecture. Up until 1987, a violin version was used on Sanyo Broadcasting, in Okayama and Kagawa, also signalling the end of daily programming.
