Recently, Yukari Miyake appeared on a TV program that was in the first time in a while. I think that she last appeared on TV was a Fuji TV New Year program aired on January 1, 2016.
On 9th Feb. 2019, Yukari Miyake appeared on a Broadcast Satellite program of TV Tokyo together with the commanding officer Yoshio Higuchi and four other members.
Miyake & Higuchi talked with Shumpootei Koasa, a famous Rakugo-ka (comic stories teller), and Yasuko Ohtani, a violinist. Yukari Miyake sang two songs, ”Umi no Sakimori (Guardians At Sea)” and ”Hamabe no uta (At The Shore)".
"Umi no Sakimori" is a formal piece of MSDF commonly played in ceremonies such as one giving the navy flag to newly built warship (See the video below).
This piece originally was of the Maritime Guard the predecesor of Maritime Self Defense Force. I feel from this song the spirit of them who tried to be noble as the Guardians at Sea despite having only warships and equipments that seem to be much more disturbidsng compared with the Imperial navy or present JMSDF.
For your convenience, I tried to leave provisional translation of the text of "Umi no Sakimori (The Guardians at Sea)" as follows.
On 11th Mar. 2019, 0955~ TV ASAHI's regular program "Jun Sampo (Jun's Walk)"is going to be on air. This time Junji Takada the walker of the program will walk around the "Kinuta Park" in Setagaya Tokyo. You know, the Tokyo Band facility is located in the immediate vicinity of the park. So Junji Takada will visit them in the program and will listen to their performances, and Yukari Miyake's singing, of course.
