    These two short compositions, like 'Rando Fukuda's other shakuhachi works, are tinged with sweetness and nostalgia for the romanticism of the Taisho era (1912-1926). Both of these pieces were written at the beginning of the Showa era (1926-1989). Many of Rando's shakuhachi works are based on themes of childhood days or heart-rending memories, and amidst the shakuhachi repertoire they shine brightly. He is widely known for his songs "Fuefuki Doji" (Flute-playing Child) and "Beni Kujaku" (Red Peacock), but in real life he lead a solitary existence.
