This is a Japanese song from the 1910s. It was played in Akira
Kurosawa's movie 'Ikiru' and I've also heard it was played in the
anime 'fushigi yuugi.'It's sad and beautiful when sung
passionately.

The English version is sometimes called: Life is brief

sentences, lyrics change depending on the artist):

(In English)

    life is brief.
    fall in love, maidens
    before the crimson bloom
    fades from your lips
    before the tides of passion
    cool within you,
    for those of you
    who know no tomorrow

    life is brief
    fall in love, maidens
    before his hands
    take up his boat
    before the flush of his cheeks fades
    for those of you
    who will never return here

    life is brief
    fall in love, maidens
    before the boat drifts away
    on the waves
    before the hand resting on your shoulder
    becomes frail
    for those who will never
    be seen here again

    life is brief
    fall in love, maidens
    before the raven tresses begin to fade
    before the flame in your hearts
    flicker and die
    for those to whom today
    will never return
