Many thanks to HAMADA Miwa and team at the University of Toyama for allowing me to use the Sakura Sakura recording and midi from their wonderful site of Japanese Songs. On their site you'll find the Japanese lyrics to many Japanese children's songs and folk songs. You'll find transliterations of the songs, recordings, midis and sheet music.
