Stargazing: Koi no Hajimari - Hanazawa Kana

December 3 and it's a little colder. Nothing still on the snow front, but hopefully that's different where you are! My disappointment from the lack of snow will immediately melt away with today's song, without a doubt.

'Koi no Hajimari' is a side track from the Hanazawa Kana single entitled 'Hoshizora Destination', which was her introduction to the solo artist production world. The whole single is fantastic, especially for being a debut, but it's this track that remains my favourite and fits in with the winter atmosphere so well. It's gentle, it's cute and it's just a joy to listen to.
