Today, I would like to share with you the theme song from the movie Departures (Okuribito) by Yojiro Takita. It won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2009 Oscars. This is probably the best movie I have watched this year. It touches on one of the taboo subjects in Japan and yet the director had sensitively and beautifully brought out the subject. The theme song by Joe Hisaishi is simply enchanting and powerfully moving.
