The lullaby of the Chugoku District was created in Takaya-cho, Ibara City. Ueno Taishi, who was Ibara City native and vocalist, at the beginning of the Showa period (around 1926), sang the lullaby to the respected educator, Yamada Kosaku. His mother used to sing the lullaby to him.
Yamada was moved, then arranged the lullaby, and now the song is widely sung and loved.
In Pocket Park, in the center of Ibara City, there is a monument that plays this Chugoku District lullaby and a sculpture, among other items commemorating this song.
