Guitar: Fumio Yanagisawa

From Janis: Kaya Saito grew up in a provincial city near Tokyo that commands a view of Mt. Fuji. She began showing music promise from a very early age, and eventually attained the #1 spot in a 2019 television program "Music Champ" in Japan. This past spring she moved to Tokyo so she could devote herself whole-heartedly to music, fulfilling her early promise.
She sent this beautiful letter:
"
Dear Janis Ian, I am Kaya Saito. Thank you for the wonderful song. What I thought was normal everyday life turned out to be anything but. I realized something so joyful,that the sadness and trouble we face can be overcome when everyone comes together to defeat it. Then, true joy can be found in normal everyday life. I sang 'Better Times Will Come' while embracing this feeling. The guitar was played by Fumio Yanagisawa, introduced by an acquaintance. Thank you. Saito Kaya"
I could not have said it better myself; at 19, she shows a poise and devotion I can only admire.

Better Times Will Come

Japanese lyric adaptation: Takahiro Maeda, executive producer, Japan
作詞・作曲 Janis Ian  日本語詞 前田たかひろ 

Better times, better times will come
その日は 必ず来る
みんなでまるい地球と言う船漕いで行こう  

きっと試されている 愛は幻想だろう?と
だったら今証明しよう 愛は幻想じゃない 

Better times, better times will come
その日は 必ず来る
みんなでまるい地球と言う船漕いで行こう  

きっと試されている 船出の覚悟を
だったら見せよう証明しよう 嵐も越えよう

Better times, better times will come
今こそ 学ぶとき
みんなでまるい地球と言う船漕いで行こう 

Better times, better times will come
その日は 必ず来る
みんなでまるい地球と言う船漕いで行こう 
Oh Better times will come
