Along with "Kayo Concert" on Tuesday nights here on TV Japan and "Nodo Jiman" on Sunday afternoons, Saturday afternoons also have the kayo corner covered with a 2-hour show. I caught today's episode, and one of the songs featured sounded awfully familiar to an old chestnut. That oldie-but-goodie happened to be Saburo Kitajima's（北島三郎）"Hakodate no Hito"（函館の女）from 1965 in which the highlight is hearing Sabu-chan yelling out the name of that city in Hokkaido.
I mentioned in the article for "Hakodate no Hito" that Kitajima, lyricist Tetsuro Hoshino（星野哲郎）and composer Nobuo Shimazu（島津伸男）created a series of "...no Hito" geography-based enka that numbered to around 8 or 9 and went on for about the better part of a decade starting with "Hakodate no Hito". The song that I heard today was "Onomichi no Hito" (Woman of Onomichi), the 2nd in the series that was released in 1966. Onomichi happens to be a scenic city in the southeastern part of Hiroshima Prefecture. Strangely enough, I was doing a few translation articles on that very area just within the last several days.
