Nagakane Miyara and the poets who supported his songs

The first chapter is about Nagatsune's life, written based on new materials, while the second chapter contains newly discovered material about "Arashi no Uta/Arashi no Kyoku" and "Miyara Bridge no Uta," as well as information about the school principal who selected Nagatsune, Kihachiro Wada, and the testimony of former nurse Tomiko Yakahisa, who was with Nagatsune at the end. The third chapter focuses on the poets who supported Nagatsune's songs (Nobumitsu Ohama, Eiji Kinjo, Takao Miyara, Yusho Izumikuni, Takaji Miyara, Shizuko Miyazato, and Shigeyoshi Kitamura), and approaches Nagatsune's songs from the world of songwriting.
