STORY BEHIND THE YOSHIWARA LAMENT


 Hi, guys. From yesterday post of Japanese WGB Yaeryu fanclub, there’s someone posted about the story behind the song of “YOSHIWARA LAMENT”. As we know, the song actually has been converted into a light novel with the main character Kasane Teto-san. Personally, I never read the book, but I read the summary once and connecting with the lyric, I think I need to share this, because it is a very touched story wrapped up by a good song :D So, I wanna let you know…
--
So, the story was taken place in Yoshiwara, a famous red-light district in Edo (I’m sure you’ve already known about the place). Or check it out on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoshiwara (today known Nihonbashi)
--
There was a fifteen years old girl, named Kasane Teto. She was sold to a brothel to become a courtesan in Yoshiwara (you can imagine this if you have had watched the movie of ‘Geisha’). She was actually has a childhood friend, named Akasaka Tetsu who spent a pleasure childhood together with her. She tried to still hope that someday she can reach his beloved, but eventually, she has lost all hope and became indifferent to whatever happens. Despite that, it seems, she still had her hope to meet her lover even in Yoshiwara.
---------------
*First part shows what happen to Kasane-san in Yoshiwara as a courtesan:
Edo no machi wa kyou mo fukaku
-Tonight,Edo is once more [1]-
Yoru no tobari kaketeiku
-Wrapped in a veil of profound darkness-
Kagami muite beni wo hiite
-Drawing a line of red as I face a mirror-
Oujiru mama ukeireru mama
-In order to receive, in order to satisfy-
Daidai kagayaita hana
-I used to desire and long for-
Akogareteta nozondeita
-A glittering orange flower [2]-
Itsu no mani ka aiiro no hana
-Before I knew it, I've become an indigo flower [3]-
Keredo watashi yasukunai wa
-But still, I don't come cheap-
--
[1] Edo is the former name of Tokyo.
[2] The orange flower here is depicted as a sunflower in the PV. Sunflowers in flower language (hanakotoba) is a sign of devotion and loyalty, attachment to a person and ardent love.
[3] The indigo (or blue) flower here is depicted as hydrangeas in the PV. Hydrangeas in hanakotoba mean pride, beauty, femininity, as well as cruelty and indifference.
==========
Part 2 shows how she loves her childhood friend so much. She wanted to give all the love to him, but the fate stole away her freedom, and she was sent to Yoshiwara and could do nothing:
Makoto wa tada hitori no
-At first, I had wanted-
Donata ka no tame dake ni
-To blossom only for one person-
Saiteitakatta no da keredo
-But...-
Unmei wa wacchi no jiyuu wo ubai,
-Fate stole away my freedom-
Soite haguruma wo
-And so, the wheels-
Mawashiteiku no de arinsu
-Continued to turn-
==========
Part 3. Reff. Once she was bought, she had to satisfy the customer with no pure love in that:
Itsuwari darake no ren'ai
-Even if it's just a false love,-
Soshite watashi wo idaku no ne
-Can you embrace me?-
Kanashii kurai ni kanjita
-Right now, rain falls on Yoshiwara-
Furi no yoshiwara kyou wa ame
-A sad feeling trembling through-
Anata-sama douka watashi wo
-Please, sir, if possible,-
Katte itadakenai deshouka?
-Will you be willing to buy me?-
Sakidasu kasa no mure ni
-In the flock of blooming umbrellas-
Nureru watashi wa ame
-I am drenched, I am rain-
==========
Part 4: She was still hope that someone who she loves coming to her and release her from the cage:
Yukikau mure nigiwaru koe ga
-The bustling crowd comes and goes-
Hishinuki ai mo tsureai
-Flocking around, going about-
Negau koto wa douka itsuka
-My only wish is that someday-
Torikago no soto tsuredashite
-Someone will release me from this birdcage [5]-
---
[5] Birdcage here refers to the "harimise" or the viewing cage courtesans are placed in, very much like a display in a shop. Courtesans are made sit in the display the whole day until someone "buys" them.
==========
(Book version) One day, she got a customer, a young samurai named Kei, who was gentle and strong, and seems she fall for him. But at the same time, she’s remembering Tetsu when she saw the young samurai. Well, she still wait to meet Tetsu again.
==========
Part 5: Everything that she hopes seems to be useless, that what happened in the Yoshiwara. Customer came, she should what what she should : “Welcome, please enter” :
Ureiwoobita hana nozomu hateru
-The sorrow-tinged flowers, with my hope, withered away-
"Youkoso oidekunnamashi"
-"Welcome, please enter."-
==========
Part 6:
Koibito gokko no yoru ni
-In a night for lovers,-
Toiki "aahh" to nakasete
-I can only purr and sigh-
Kanashii kurai ni kanjita
-Right now, rain falls on Yoshiwara-
Furi no Yoshiwara kyou mo ame
-A sad feeling trembling through-
==========
In the end of the PV, we can see that Teto was surprised by seeing someone she really wanted to meet. And the story ended by a happy ending ^^
==========
---Good job Asa-san!---
==Wagakki Band covered this song in their first album Vocalozanmai in their music way. It turns really beautiful played with some Japanese traditional instruments. And we can see when this song is brought live, Yuko’s singing style, gestures, the umbrella, and everything creates a beautiful atmosphere that show the scene of the song’s story. What do you think?===
==========
*PS. I just read the summary of the light novel, so please tell me if there is something looks particularly wrong :D
