Dango Daikazoku - Translating Music

In today's article we will translate and study the music of Dango Daikazoku (だんご大家族) from the anime Clannad. This song is simple and sounds like a lullaby, it is great for those who are starting to study Japanese.

As this song is small and repeats a phrase a lot, we will not put the lyrics in Japanese, Romanized and the separate translation as usual. We will simply study the music and you will be able to see the 3. This is a special gift, since most of our songs we study in our area of VIP members

If you like Dango Dai Kazoku's music, we recommend playing my game based on the music I created in flash clicking here. I dare you to reset it!
