Dance title Tamagawa  In Japanese
Authors Nagai Sogaku (lyrics)
Kineya Kangor V (music)

The song "Tamagawa" ("Tama River") was written and performed by a Nagauta ensemble for the first time in September 1908 in Shinbashi (Tky). Later on, it became a Buy dance.

Key words Nagauta

This song beautifully depicts the scenic charm of the Tamagawa shoreline in Tky. In this song are expressed the feeling from the silent mountains, the tranquillity of the country, the flow of the river, and the songs sung as dyes from fabric are washed away in the river.
