This lovely song is from "Misora," the 1972 debut by pure-voiced folk singer Sachiko Kanenobu, apparently considered Japan's first female singer-songwriter and, not surprisingly, labeled the "Japanese Joni Mitchell." The album has been long out of print, but was recently reissued by Australia's Chapter Music. Thanks to Fat Planet for the tip.
