Naomi Sagara

Naomi Sagara

She is a Japanese singer who was active from the late-1960s until the mid-1980s. After she left singing, she ran her family's company and now manages a dog training school in Nasu, Tochigi Prefecture.

It seems I was a big fan of her when I was 3 or 4 years old. I don’t remember about it, but my mother used to say so. I heard, one day, I went to a beauty shop next to my house alone and cut my hair like her without my parent’s permission. I'll ever know why I chose her, not a young idol singer.

Coming into the '80s, the singer was staying behind the scene, so, I didn’t have time to listen to her singing and just vaguely remembered her voice until a while ago.

Now, I sometimes enjoy her voice on a video site.

I supposedly heard these songs for the first time on the site. She was indeed amazing. I’m happy because the videos demonstrate that infant Kinakinw had a good eye for singers.

“What I like”, soothing rhythm of Bossa-Nova

“Hitori Tabi (solo trip)” with a taste of Country music

Last year, she released new songs for the first time in over two decades and participated in the interview by a tabloid newspaper.

When a celebrity fades from the limelight, we are inclined to suppose that person would go down in the world though he or she wants to be center of the stage. The interview tells us that are totally silly assumptions.

She’s just doing what she wants.
However, I wish we could share her gifted voice.
