Those songs are sung in Japanese, but they have roman letters
expression for Japanese (kana) characters of each notes. They also
have English translation of the song lyrics.

Those scores are generally available in Japan, but I do not know
whether they are available outside Japan, too.

- Boku no Kioku no Dokokani (Somewhere in My Memory) - by Kentaro Sato

It is a choral song set (4 movements) based on seasonal Japanese kid's songs. It can be sung by choirs of any level. It is one of the most well-written choral songs in Japanese which can be easily performed by non-Japanese speakers. It would be a great multi-cultural choral repatoire for the concert, and probably one of the best repertoire for tour in Japan.

I'm looking for choral score written by Korean or Japanese composer, for SATB voices, or more, which is sung by accapella. In every choir competition in my country, there's some competitor sing Korean composition but the languange is in Latin, for example Ave Maria, etc. Do you have any suggestion from where I can get the score, even I have to pay for the score? Thanks.
