Are request - why words to Ougai Mori Ougai?
Reason why Ougai Mori is person of words does not become clear. According to the diary of Ougai, proxy/agent Miyake Seijo (education section manager) of The Mayor of Yokohama Nobukata Mitsuhashi visits Ougai on March 21, 1909 (Meiji 42) and asks for words of song of city. On the other hand, by of Ougai "who was entrusted with when we make song of Yokohama opening of a port 50 years from Tokyo music school" remains. At first, from these, Yokohama-shi asks Tokyo music school, and there is idea supposing that the school might have mediated to Ougai.
Point, the lyrics are the back production process - music
We made music earlier, and Yokohama-shi song was made with method (*shi, tenshi) to touch words to music. This seemed to be technique that was rare for those days. Ougai called to music school from the south on June 6, 1909 (Meiji 42) played "*shi on seeing music of Yokohama-shi song promptly". According to by of Ougai, we seemed to suggest the method by oneself. As we did such a suggestion for the first time, the school side was surprised and seemed to be pleased.
Musician of person of composition, nannoei - rising person
nannoei graduated from Tokyo music school (existing Tokyo University of the Arts music department) in Tokushima native place, 1904 (Meiji 37) and, after experiencing Tokushima junior high school teachers, became assistant professor at Tokyo music school in 1908 (Meiji 41). The south is 27 years old at the time. We compose a lot of school songs of school where had request with the youth in Tokyo music school. By combination with Ougai, we produce "bi*susumisakisei*tokukoreka" (column refers to "School Y and Ougai Mori & nannoei") elsewhere.
Manufacture costs of song of city
According to "yokohamakaikogojunenkinencho", the total sum of manufacture costs is 472 yen 80 sen. There is breakdown with next beach travel expenses and lunch charges 12 yen 80 sen for 310 yen, person of composition professor to "versification reward" 100 yen, "composition reward" 50 yen, score and 30,800 copies of print in simplified lineage twice. Alternatively, silver cigar box is given Ougai by the mayor.
By the way, it is to print of score with 310 yen, but it is golden, and mount treats badge of city on 120 loaves of coated paper, surfaces very beautifully, and, according to the place where the capital newspaper at the time tells, the print does state of now and the bygone days of Yokohama with design and is that we printed score on the back side.
The opening of a port 50 years festival
On July 1, 1909 (Meiji 42), commemorative ceremony of the 50th anniversary of the Yokohama opening of a port was held.

And it means, "we waited for the principal to take song of city home with him/her from city hall under all the students gaseizoroishite, the sun of midsummer on both sides of Nogezaka.". Afterwards, "100 now ship hyakusen ships" "peach food is diarrhea now…That parodies called "were popular.
