about

Akita Obako
(Akita prefecture)

Obako means “daughter”, but the word is often used to refer to an unmarried woman.

“Young woman, how old are you?
If you're 17, blossom swiftly. For in your bloom lies the promise of bearing fruit; otherwise, you will fade into obscurity.”

This sentiment echoes the famous latin aphorism “Carpe Diem” or “Pluck the day.”

lyrics

秋田おばこ (秋田)

おばこナ~ 何ぼになる 
この年暮らせば十と七つ

十七ナ~ おばこなど 
何しに花コなど 咲かねエとナ~

咲けばナ~実もヤなる 
咲かねば日陰の色紅葉
