That's because you're too slow to realize.

Great song.....in fact the songs on this album sounded superb live in concert...
Tokyo Road is a cracking song,the beginning of the song adds an atmosphere to the tune in my opinion.Unfortunately the production on the album doesnt really do justice to the majority of Fahrenheit
Cant really see Jovi doing Tokyo Road live on this tour,i honestly dont think he can hit the high notes anymore!!!

It's an old Japanese folk song called "Sakura sakura". I remember reading from an interview back in the 80's that they put it there as a sign of thank you for their loyal Japanese fans who had sent them a small music box that played this song.

And to this day, that remains the only Japanese I know, despite taking an evening class
I love the song, enough to say it's probably one of my favourite Jovi songs.

Great song this "Tokyo Road". The only song from the album that I could really see fitting in today's setlists. The version from Rio 1990 is up there with their best recordings. Bring it back boys!
