"It's ok to act sweet!" - get surrounded by cute Hakata dialect♡

A new birthday song "Hapiba!" by fumika, an artist from Fukuoka, has been released on Friday 10th April. It is released as a theme song of the web movie of The Nishi-Nippon City Bank, "Thanks for your letter #7"! (>> Click HERE to see the video!)

"Terende yokatoyo (lit.:It's ok to be shy)," "Oiwai shitaicchan (lit.: I want to celebrate for u)," "Amaete yokaken'ne (lit.: It's ok to act sweet)"- these lyrics are sung in the cute and warm Hakata dialect that will light up your happiness through fumika's silvery voice♪ It is worth mentioning that fumika has contributed to the cover photo production by inviting a confectionery shop in Fukuoka- "Chocolate Shop", for a collaboration. The photo shows an eye-catching birthday cake with the shape of the map of Fukuoka Prefecture. "As written in the lyrics, a dazzling image of my beloved Fukuoka people celebrating birthdays in Tenjin and Nakasu area (Fukuoka Pref.) came to my mind", said fumika, "I'll be very happy if I could deliver the message to many people". Let's check out this birthday song filled with fumika's wishes♪ (Editorial Dept.: Nika)
